Paarl Rocks vs Cape Town Blitz at Boland Park, 10:00

The Mzansi Super League (MSL) T20 continues with two fixtures lined up for Sunday.

The first one is between neighbours Paarl Rocks and Cape Town Blitz at Boland Park, which will see national skipper Faf du Plessis come up against his deputy, Quinton de Kock as the two Proteas lead the respective franchises.

The visitors will have gotten more than a much-needed workout, having featured in the opening game of the tournament on Friday.

Nelson Mandela Bay Giants vs Jozi Rocks at St George’s Park, 14:00

The afternoon fixture sees Nelson Mandela Bay Giants play host to defending champions, Jozi Stars.

The title-holders kicked off their campaign in disappointing fashion, after faltering against Cape Town Blitz on Friday, and will want to bounce back immediately in what is a short tournament.

The Rugby World Cup champions are still on the road, and their next stop is Port Elizabeth – home town for both coach Rassie Erasmus and captain Siya Kolisi.

They proceed from 9:00, and will visit places such as the city centre, as well as nearby townships like Zwide, New Brighton and Motherwell.

The Springboks conclude their victory parade on Monday, when they visit Cape Town.
