SA-U19 vs ECI T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Semi Final CSA Provincial T20 Cup 2022
South Africa U-19s will take on Eastern Cape at Buffalo Park, East London. The second semi-final of the CSA Provincial T20 Cup 2022/23 begins at 14:00 local time on Saturday 8th October.
South Africa U19
The young national side have been the most impressive team in the 2022 CSA Provincial T20 Cup and come into the semi-final with a 100% record. They picked up 14 points from their three matches with wins over all opposition in Pool A.
Meeka eel Prince is the leading run scorer in the tournament with 143 runs from three innings. He has increased his previous score in each game with 35 against Eastern Storm, followed by 45 against Tuskers and 63 against Mpumalanga Rhinos.
The top two wicket takers in the competition both play for South Africa U-19s with slow left-arm orthodox bowler, Liam Alder, leading the way. He has taken seven wickets at an average of 9.00 and has been well backed up by right arm fast bowler Matthew Boast who has six wickets so far.
South Africa U-19s have been unstoppable in the tournament and are targeting their fourth straight win.
After their first two matches were washed out due to heavy rain in East London, Eastern Cape won their only Pool B fixture via a Super Over against South Western Districts. Eastern Cape posted 158-6 in reply to Districts' 158-9 in a very competitive match.
In their only victory, there were useful contributions from Mncedisi Malika (31 runs from 32 balls), Jerry Nqolo (20 runs from 16 balls) and captain Clayton Bosch (10 runs from 5 balls) but it was Joshua van Heerden who top scored with 75 runs from 56 balls.
23 year old slow left-arm orthodox bowler Jade de Klerk was the only person in Eastern Cape’s attack against South Western Districts who went wicketless. Phaphama Fojela took 2-14 from four overs with pace bowler Gideon Peters taking 3-28.
Eastern Cape showed character to win the Super Over but would have hoped to have beaten South Western Districts in normal time.
