Paarl Royals 11/10
MI Cape Town 8/11
Suggested Bet: Paarl Royals win at 11/10
Both teams know that a loss would put them under pressure in the 2nd half of the competition and I think the Royals are worth a punt at 11/10 on home turf.
Suggested Bet: Top Royals Bowler Fortuin at 26/10
He bowls upfront and the opposition need to have a go at him in the power play and this can lead to wickets.
