Match 25 of the Mzansi Super League will see the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants hosting the Tshwane Spartans at home in a bid to strengthen their case for top three finish. The last time these two teams met each other, the Giants emerged victorious by seven wickets (D/L method). Moreover, they have won two out of the three completed matches at home.
