Teams Preview

Tshwane Spartans Preview

Tshwane Spartans have won both their completed matches so far and looked to be in a good position to win the contest before the rain arrived in their match against Durban heat. Openers Dean Elgar and Thenis De Bruyn are amongst the runs consistently and giving brilliant start to their innings.

AB De Villiers stole the show last night with his stroke filled fifty and Petrus Van Biljon (45 runs) providing a good partnership with him. They took Spartans to 155/6 from 47/4 at the half-way stage. Morne Morkel and Tom Curran took 3 wickets each to bowl out the Jozi Stars for 135 runs. Lungi Ngidi and Lutho Simpala are bowling well but need to contribute to the wickets column consistently. Roelof van Der Merwe will be lone spinner in the playing XI and will have a huge role to play.

Key Players:

AB De Villiers – De Villiers showed his class in the last match controlling the innings expertly. He took off from 24 runs off 21 balls to finish with 53 runs off 3 balls. He consolidated the innings after the early loss of wickets and then teed off.

Morne Morkel – Big Morne might have retired from his national colors but he truly putti9ng on splendid performance this season. He has 6 wickets from his 8.1 overs at an economy of just 6 RPO.

Tshwane Spartans Predicted Playing XI:

Heinrich Klaasen (c & wk), Theunis de Bruyn, Dean Elgar, AB de Villiers, Petrus van Biljon, Roelof van der Merwe, Wiaan Mulder, Tom Curran, Morne Morkel, Lungi Ngidi, Lutho Sipamla

Paarl Rocks Preview

Paarl Rocks are on a roll and have won three consecutive matches on a trot. James Vince once again top-scored for their team with 37 runs in the last match. Henry Davids, Cameron Delport, and Faf Du Plessis came with good little cameos to keep the scoreboard ticking. Paarl Rocks batsmen have scored only a lone fifty in their 6 matches but are coming up with vital cameos to help the team.

Their bowling unit had a rare outing with all five bowlers taking 2 wickets each in the last match. Spinners Tabraiz Shamsi and Bjorn Fortuin have been their biggest strength this season taking 9 & 7 wickets respectively. Hardus Viljoen and Isuru Udana are leaking runs at over 8.5 RPO but have helped the team in crucial moments to win the match. Paarl Rocks only loss came against Tshwane Spartans this season.

Key Players:

James Vince – Vince tops the runs chart for Rocks with 186 runs at a strike rate of 158. He top-scored for the team in three of the four matches he played so far. He will look to continue his purple patch in the next match also

Bjorn Fortuin – Fortuin has 7 wickets at an economy of just 5.8 RPO this season and add to that he bowls in the powerplay. He dismissed both the openers last match to derail the chase of the Giants team.

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Weather Conditions

Both the matches played here have ended as No-result so far. But, the weather looks bright and sunny with very less chances of rain on the match day. The rain may not play a spoilsport in this match.

Venue Details

Centurion pitch will be a lively pitch with good bounce and carry to aid the faster bowlers. The batsmen will enjoy the ball coming onto the bat at nice pace and bounce. . We can expect scores around 160-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first has 9-5 win-loss ratio this season and teams batting first has won the last three matches. Chasing becomes difficult under lights on a used pitch.

Winning Prediction

Both Paarl Rocks and Tshwane Spartans are in good form in the build-up to this match and we expect a good cracking contest. Failure of Spartans batsmen to post a big score & pace department`s ineffectiveness may haunt them against a quality team like Spartans.

We predict Tshwane Spartans to win this match and continue their momentum.

Tshwane Spartans will win the match!
