Durban Super Giants (DSG) were terrific in the league stage of the ongoing SA20 2024. However, towards the end of the league, they suffered a heartbreak at the hands of Joburg Super Kings (JSK), which forced them to finish second on the points table. After losing to Sunrisers Eastern Cape by 52 runs in Qualifier 2, they are once again set to face the familiar Faf du Plessis-led side, who would be confident of their chances after a terrific nine-wicket win over Paarl Royals in the Eliminator.
Notably, JSK skipper Faf du Plessis and Leus de Plooy are in remarkable form at the moment. The openers once again smashed a half-century each in the last match as their form will be vital for the team going forward. Sam Cook and Nandre Burger picked up four and three wickets respectively and courtesy of the same, the visitors will be much more relaxed.
Meanwhile, the Keshav Maharaj-led side will have to focus on their batting. They were bundled for 106 runs in the last match, which is a massive concern. However, they are quality experienced players in the middle, who can turn things around in Qualifier 2.
