ECI vs SWD T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, CSA Provincial T20 Cup 2022
Eastern Cape will take on South Western Districts at Buffalo Park, East London. Match 6 in Pool B of the CSA Provincial T20 Cup 2022/23 begins at 14:30 local time on Sunday 2nd October.
After their opening match against local rivals Northern Cape was cancelled, Eastern Cape had to deal with another cancellation in their game against Limpopo on Saturday. All of Eastern Cape’s players should be fully fit and desperate to get their tournament underway.
28 year old Marco Marais is a very consistent batter with averages above 30 across all three formats. In T20 cricket alone, he has hit nine half-centuries and two hundreds. Eastern Cape will look to give him as much of the strike as possible.
We expect left-arm spinner Tumelo Simelane to cause batters problems on any pitch across this tournament. Alongside him, all of the pace bowlers should be made fully aware that the overhead and pitch conditions are in favour of quick bowlers.
Eastern Cape are still searching for their first win over the last two seasons of this competition.
South Western Districts
After reaching the quarter-final stage last year, South Western Districts had high hopes of progressing further in the tournament last year but so far the rain has stopped any wins or strong performances in this competition.
26 year old Matthew Christensen enjoys his T20 cricket and averages just under 25 in this format. Although he has scored only one T20 half-century, he often helps his teams get off to a good start and bats at a high strike-rate.
After being one of the bowling stars of the 2022 CSA Provincial T20, Hershell America is desperate to get out on to the pitch to play this match. The 28 year old medium pacer will enjoy having a pitch with some dampness and some life in it.
South Western Districts lost their last two completed games last year but they have players who have been in strong form across other format.s
