Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction MSL - Jozi Stars v Paarl Rocks
Jozi Stars are playing at their home ground at the New Wanderers stadium but having lost two out of the three matches at this venue, they might not be too pleased with that.
Paarl Rocks would be under immense pressure as their whimsical performances in the tournament have put them in a tight spot. Now, they cannot afford anymore slip ups.
Jozi Stars have an explosive batting lineup with Chris Gayle leading the charge. Reeza Hendricks and Rassie van der Dussen have also performed exceedingly well in the tournament.
The Stars boast of a formidable pace quartet in Kagiso Rabada, Beuran Hendricks, Duanne Olivier and Daniel Christian. Hendricks and Olivier have stepped up their game in the tournament and are two of the top five bowlers.
Jozi Stars lost three of the first four matches but bucked up from there on, winning three consecutive matches. They have now entered the top three in the leaderboard.
Paarl Rocks will bank on skipper Faf du Plessis to score some quick runs. He would be assisted by Aiden Markram, Cameron Delport and Vaughn van Jaarsveld.
Dwayne Bravo is also back from the T10 League and can contribute some handy runs. Bravo will join hands with Bjorn Fortuin, Dane Paterson and Tabraiz Shamsi to form the bowling lineup of the Rocks.
Jozi Stars mauled Paarl Rocks by 60 runs when the two teams faced each other earlier at Boland Park and they would have happy memories of the contest.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XIs of both teams.
Jozi Stars- Chris Gayle, Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Dane Vilas (c/wk), Petrus van Biljon, Daniel Christian, Simon Harmer, Nono Pongolo, Kagiso Rabada, Beuran Hendricks, Duanne Olivier
