Cricket Match Preview:

Mzansi Super League is now reaching its last leg. Every cricketing side has at least played 6 games of cricket. Durban Heat have played 6 games of cricket so far and managed to win only 1 game. Jozi Stars, on the other hand, have won 4 games of cricket out of 7 cricket games played so far and are almost through to the next round.

Durban Heat have a problem on their hands. Their batsmen are just not scoring enough runs for them. K Zondo has been the highest scorer for them with just 147 runs in the tournament. The extent of their failure to score runs can be gauged from the fact that the highest scorer for Jozi Stars, RR Hendricks, has scored 346 runs in the tournament so far.

Durban Heat’s bowlers have not managed to pick up as many wickets as their counterparts, too. Their best bowler Kyle Abbot has picked up 7 wickets, whereas for Jozi Stars, D Olivier has picked up 11 wickets in the tournament so far. Durban Heat have to simply score more runs and wickets in the tournament to stay alive. They can now win at most 5 games of cricket and in order to achieve that, they will have to win all their remaining games.

Jozi Stars, meanwhile, would look to topple Cape Town Blitz from the top position. Stars have played one game of cricket less than the Blitz and would fancy their chances to end up at the top position. They have won the last three games of cricket and look in fine form at the moment. Hendricks will look to continue his rich vein of form in the remaining games of cricket. If he remains this way, he will be in contention to get selected for the World Cup squad for South Africa.

Cricket Match Information:

Durban Heat will take on Jozi Stars in a T20 cricket game, which will define their survival in the remainder of the tournament. They have so far won only one game of cricket in the tournament, whereas Jozi Stars are sitting pretty on the second spot on the points table.

Durban Heat

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

It has been a while since Heat have won the game of cricket. If they do not win now, they will be out of the tournament. Our prediction is of the same eleven as their last cricket game as they cannot keep on changing the eleven in every game.

Here is our prediction of Durban Heat’s playing XI:

  • MN van Wyak
  • SJ Erwee
  • Henrich Klassen
  • David Miller
  • K Zondo
  • Albie Morkal
  • Vernon Philander
  • T Bokako
  • Kesav Maharaj
  • Kyle Abbot
  • Brendon Mavuta

Jozi Stars:

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Jozi Stars have been in great form in the last few games of cricket. They will look to continue the rich vein of form and our prediction is they will continue with the same playing eleven.

Here is our prediction of Jozi Stars playing XI:

  • Chris Gayle
  • RR Hendricks
  • He van der Dussen
  • Danielle Christian
  • PJ van Biljon
  • DJ Vilas
  • SR Harmer
  • Z Pongolo
  • Kagiso Rabada
  • D Olivier
  • BE Hendricks

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Chris Gayle had a quiet game of cricket in the previous game. He would like to make amends in the next game of cricket. Our prediction is of a typical Gayle’s knock in the next game of cricket.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

Kingsmead Durban has been a relatively low scoring ground in the tournament so far. The pitch has helped the bowlers and a score of around 140 will be a match-winning game. Our prediction is of victory for the team batting first. Conditions are expected to be dry and pitch is expected to be spicy for the bowlers.

Our Prediction:

Durban Heat look out of sort in the tournament so far. Their confidence looks shattered and Jozi Stars would like to pile on the misery. Durban Heat, being the home team, would like to bring conditions to their advantage. They have the bowlers in Kyle Abbot, who can seize the spicy conditions to his advantage. However, our prediction is of Jozi Stars victory considering their fine form.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Chris Gayle (JS) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Vernon Philander (DH) -2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Chris Gayle (JS)
