Mentioned below is our top team betting tip from the EP vs MPR head-to-head encounter.
Mpumalanga’s campaign kicked off with a six wicket defeat at the hands of South Western Districts in their opening game of the season. The duo of Tumi Koto & Muhammed Mayet opened the innings for Mpumalanga in the last game. However, the two of them only managed to gather just 8 runs before M Mayet fell victim to Walters for 5 runs. T Koto was soon dismissed after scoring just 9. Mpumalanga’s opening pair revolved around Gerhardus Vosloo, Herman van Straaten, Matt Brink & Desmond Makua last season but none of them provided a strong start to Mpumalanga’s innings. Mpumalanga posted scores of 8, 16, 0, 4 & 41 runs before the fall of the first wicket in the last five matches. This sums up to just 69 runs from five matches averaging at 13.80 runs for the first wicket. In the last five List A matches, Eastern Province leaked 25, 13, 74, 23 & 18 runs before picking up the first wicket against the opposition they faced. Tumi Koto scored 111 runs from six games last season and averaged close to 18.50. Muhammed Mayet, on the other hand, averages almost 26.25 in his List A career so far. Therefore, it would be fair to place your bet on Mpumalanga to score low before the fall of the 1st wicket in this game.
