The 27th match of the Mzansi Super League 2019 will be played between Jozi Stars and Durban Heat at the New Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.

Durban Heat are placed at the fourth spot in the Mzansi Super League 2019 points table with three wins and two losses from 8 matches. Three of their matches have been washed out which is why the team has 18 points and a net run rate of + 0.182.

They will possibly have it easy against Jozi Stars who are right at the bottom after eight matches. The team has lost seven of its games while one has been rained off, courtesy of which the Stars have 2 points and a net run rate of -1.898.

The Stars played their last match against Paarl Rocks which they lost by 5 wickets. The team did a good job by scoring 171, courtesy of a 53-ball 74 from Reeza Hendricks and 37 from skipper Temba Bavuma.

However, with 7 wickets remaining in their kitty, the team should have pushed a little more. It was due to this reason that despite 3 wickets from Kagiso Rabada and 2 from Duanne Olivier, the team lost the game in the last over with 4 balls remaining.

Durban Heat won their last match against Paarl Rocks by 6 wickets. The Heat bowlers did not do a good job and conceded 195 runs to the Rocks. Wihan Lubbe and Malusi Siboto were their most impressive bowlers and had economy rates of around 7 in the game.

Their batsmen than compensated for the bowling with an explosive Alex Hales special, a 55-ball unbeaten 97. He got good support from David Miller who also scored a 22-ball 42 to take the team home with more than one over remaining.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Jozi Stars - Chris Gayle, Reeza Hendricks, Temba Bavuma (c), Sinethemba Qeshile (wk), Rassie van der Dussen, Ryan Rickelton, Daniel Christian, Simon Harmer, Aaron Phangiso, Kagiso Rabada, Duanne Olivier

Durban Heat - Wesley Marshall, Alex Hales, Wihan Lubbe, Dane Vilas (c, wk), David Miller, Ravi Bopara, Andile Phehlukwayo, Keshav Maharaj, Marco Jansen, Kyle Abbott, Malusi Siboto
