Cricket Match Information:
Tshwane Spartans vs Durban Heat will be playing their fourth cricket game of Mzansi Super League against each other on Thursday. Tshwane Spartans have already got off to a winning start against Paarl Rocks, but their other two games have been abandoned due to rain, one of which was against Durban Heat. Same goes for Durban Heat as two of their games had been called off and they are at fifth position in the points table. Both teams will leave no stone unturned to stop each other from scoring a victory over them. But with cloudy weather conditions and 60% thunderstorm, we hope that this match does not get abandoned and we get to see some good game of cricket. Our prediction expert reckons that Tshwane Spartans would like to consolidate their position at the top and Durban Heat would like to stop their downward slide.

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.
Tshwane Spartans have a nice mixture of young and experienced players in their squad. The experienced members of the squad, AB de Villiers, Morne Morkel and Dean Elgar have made life easier for the new captain through their performances.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game barring any injury.
Here is our prediction of Tshwane Spartans’ playing XI:
- AB de Villiers
- Dean Elgar
- Morne Morkel
- Roelof van der Merwe
- Tom Curran
- Lungi Ngidi
- Pite van Biljon
- D Ferreira
- Theunis de Bruyn
- Heinrich Klaasen
- Lutho Sipamla
Durban Heat have named Dane Vilas as the skipper for this season. Last year, they were led by allrounder Albie Morkel, who is no longer available.
Durban Heat finished last year at the last spot. In the second season, rain has not helped their cause as their first two cricket games were abandoned due to rain. Their third game was their first full game and they lost it against Cape Town Blitz by ten runs.
Durban Heat largely has a set of unknown players or the players who have not yet made it big at the international level. But they could take a lot of positives from their last game, where somebody like Wihan Lubbe impressed with a score of 83 runs off 42 balls. Due to their spirited show in the last game, our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.
Here is our prediction of Durban Heat’s playing XI:
- Dane Vilas
- Kyle Abbot
- Kesav Maharaj
- Ravi Bopara
- Alex Hales
- David Miller
- Sarel Erwee
- Andile Phehlukwayo
- MP Siboto
- Prenelan Subrayen
- Wesley Marshall
Expert Prediction: TS v DH
Due to the incessant rain in and around Durban, this season of Mzansi Super League has been affected quite a bit. The ones who have been most badly hurt have been the opponents of this game, Durban Heat and Tshwane Spartans, teams whose two out of the three cricket games have been abandoned. It does not help any cricket team as it devoids them of the opportunity to settle down into a combination or strategy.
Tshwane Spartans gave a good account of themselves in their first full game of the season. On batting second, they chased down the big total of 186 runs set by Paarl Rocks. Dean Elgar, the test specialist of South Africa, was the main man behind the run chase as he scored 88 runs off just 60 balls and helped Spartans get over the line easily.
With little cricket behind both teams, our prediction is of a tight contest between the two sides. Both teams had bowlers who looked off-colour and could do with more cricket. The batting of both teams looked good, but Spartans will hold the ace there due to the presence of many International superstars. Hence, our prediction is of Tshwane Spartans’ victory over Durban Heat in this game.
Toss prediction? – The team winning the toss will definitely look to bowl first as the T20 game is hugely a chase-friendly format. Even in this tournament, teams batting first have largely lost the game hence, our prediction is that the team winning the toss would choose to chase.
