This decision has brought some success for Spartans in this season as well. They finished the group stage at number three spot and reached the qualifier stage.
Spartans were badly hit by rain in this season of the Mzansi Super League. Out of their ten cricket games, five were abandoned due to rain. Spartans were good enough in their remaining five games and managed to reach the qualifier.
In the qualifier, Spartans, even without the significant contributions from their main players like AB de Villiers and Dean Elgar, managed to post a total of 166 runs on batting first. They were very good during the defence of the total and managed to restrict Nelson Mandela Bay Giants by 22 runs.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played in the qualifier barring any injury.
