PR vs SEC Match Preview
Paarl Royals have had a couple of tough matches leading up to the match on Friday.They enter the contest on the back of successive losses against the table toppers, Durban Supergiants. The last of those defeats came in the most embarrassing way possible as the Supergiants rolled over the Royals by 125 runs. Chasing a big score of 209, the Royals got bundled out for 83 runs thereby losing the 2nd position in the table to the Sunrisers. The Royals will be mindful of the fact that they got bowled out in the previous two games and knowing the nature of the Boland Park pitch,they will be hoping for the toss to go their way this Friday.
Unlike the Royals, the Sunrisers have had an impressive run in the tournament, winning four of their last five games. Their recent win came against the Joburg Super Kings on the back of a superb bowling performance. It was more of a statement as the Sunrisers bowlers bowled out the Super Kings for 78 and chased down the score at a canter. Once again Markram will look up to the bowlers to deliver the Knockout punch versus the Royals as his team will look to secure that all important 2nd place in the league.
