Paarl Rocks are being led by Faf du Plessis in this season of Mzansi Super League. They finished on the third spot last year.
Paarl Rocks have undergone a few changes in their squad from last year. They no longer have the services of Dwayne Bravo, Aiden Markram and Dane Peterson. Also, JP Duminy will no longer be a part of Mzansi Super League this season because of his hamstring injury.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game. However, they might go with the option of James Vince as an opener as he is available now for selection.
Here is our prediction of Paarl Rocks’ playing XI:
- Faf du Plessis
- James Vince
- Ishuru Udana
- Tabraiz Shamsi
- Hardus Viljoen
- Cameron Delport
- Dwaine Pretorius
- Bjorn Fortuin
- Sibonelo Makhanya
- Mangaliso Mosehle
- FD Adams
Tshwane Spartans have made a big change this year at the leadership level. They have replaced AB de Villiers with Henrich Klassen as the skipper for this season. Clearly, the franchise has understood that AB is not going to be around forever, and they needed to find a replacement.
Tshwane Spartans have a nice mixture of young and experienced players in their squad. While AB de Villiers, Morne Morkel and Dean Elgar are the most experienced members of the squad, the likes of Lungi Ngidi and young Corbin Bosch are the youngest members of the squad.
As their first cricket game got abandoned without the toss, our prediction remains the same which is the inclusion of Corbin Bosch, Lungi Ngidi and Morne Morkel in the playing eleven as bowlers.
Here is our prediction of Tshwane Spartans’ playing XI:
- AB de Villiers
- Dean Elgar
- Morne Morkel
- Roelof van der Merwe
- Tom Curran
- Lungi Ngidi
- Waqar Salamkheil
- Wiaan Mulder
- Theunis de Bruyn
- Heinrich Klaasen
- Lutho Sipamla
Expert Prediction: PR vs TS
Mzansi Super League’s second season has been kind of stop-start so far. Due to the consistent rain in Durban, a number of games of cricket have been abandoned. In fact, Durban Heat and Tshwane Spartans have not participated in a single completed game as yet.
However, Tshwane Spartans would be thankful for the rain as they picked up two points when they were tottering at 33 for 4 in their first cricket game. If they get the opportunity to play next time around, they will have to be a lot better with the bat in hand. Four out of the top five batsmen were dismissed in their last game cheaply and they should not let that affect their confidence in the next game.
Paarl Rocks, led by Faf du Plessis, have begun well yet again. They will be looking to do as well as last year. Now with JP Duminy out due to injury, the team will have to rely on other teammates for proper insights and performance. Rocks will also be buoyed by the return of James Vince, English opener who was recently involved in England’s series win over New Zealand.
With no rain predicted for this game of cricket, our prediction for this game is of Paarl Rocks’ win as they have already played and won one game in this league. Tshwane Spartans, on the other hand, would be looking to find the right combination and strategy in, hopefully, their first full game.
Toss prediction? – The team winning the toss will definitely look to bowl first as the T20 game is hugely a chase-friendly format. Hence, irrespective of the conditions, our prediction is that the team winning the toss would like to bowl first.
