26th Match Preview: Jozi Stars vs. Paarl Rocks

26th Match Preview: Jozi Stars vs. Paarl Rocks

The Jozi Stars will take on the Paarl Rocks at home in what will be the 26th match of the Mzansi Super League. The tournament is heading towards the business end and both sides are looking to rack up as many wins as possible. The Stars have home advantage to their side in this match. However, they have lost two out of the three matches played here. Although they made a shaky start to the tournament, they made a very good comeback thanks to their batsmen. The bowling unit has been disciplined too, despite not being the strongest in the tournament. They are currently placed third in the league table.

The Paarl Rocks, on the other hand, belong to the bottom three of the points table. Faf du Plesis and Tabraiz Shamsi's exploits resurrected their campaign a bit, but they need to continue the good work ahead. The one thing that is in favour of the rocks going into this match is that they are on a two match winning streak whereas the Stars are on a two match losing streak.

Weather and Pitch Conditions: Weather is expected to remain clear throughout the duration of the match. The pitch at Johannesburg is enjoyed by fast bowlers and batsmen equally owing to the bounce and carry through it offers and also because of its true nature.

Predicted XI:


Jozi Stars: Chris Gayle, Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Dane Vilas (c/wk), Petrus van Biljon, Daniel Christian, Simon Harmer, Nono Pongolo, Kagiso
