Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Mzansi Super League 2019 - Paarl Rocks v Jozi Stars
The 13th match of the Mzansi Super League 2019 will be played between Paarl Rocks and Jozi Stars at the Boland Park in Paarl.
Paarl Rocks are placed at the fourth spot in the Mzansi Super League 2019 points table with one win and one loss from three games. One of their matches was rained off which is why the team has 3 points and a net run rate of + 1.930.
They will compete against Jozi Stars who are struggling to open their account. The Stars are languishing at the bottom of the points table with 4 losses from as many games with a terrible net run rate of -2.543.
Paarl Rocks played their last match of the tournament against Tshwane Spartans which they lost by 8 wickets. Batting first, the team did well, posting 185 runs on the board on the back of a 53-ball unbeaten 86 from James Vince.
However, their bowlers could not quite seal the occasion and were very expensive. Bjorn Fortuin and Hardus Viljoen did a decent job of conceding runs in single digits per over.
Jozi Stars also lost their last match played against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants. The Giants bowling was too good for the Stars as the team was bowled out for just 108 runs from 18.5 overs.
Chris Gayle is yet to click in the tournament and a lot will be expected out of him in this game. Temba Bavuma was the highest scorer for the team in the last game while Reeza Hendricks has also shown sparks of brilliance.
Kagiso Rabada and Duanne Olivier are the leading bowlers for the Stars.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI both teams:
Paarl Rocks - Isuru Udana, Henry Davids, Faf du Plessis (c), Mangaliso Mosehle (wk), Dwaine Pretorius, Hardus Viljoen, Cameron Delport, Sibonelo Makhanya, Tabraiz Shamsi, Ferisco Adams, Bjorn Fortuin
