MSL Match No.15 between Capetown Blitz and Paarl Rocks,clash of no.2 & no.3 ranked side in the table. Capetown coming of a defeat against NMG whereas Paarl coming of from a good victory against Jozi in a tough deck.
Venue : Capetown
Date : 24/11/2019
Time : 4 PM IST
Pitch Report : The previous game played at Capetown seen CTB winning comfortably defending 180+ against Jozi,it was a pretty good wkt where it has enough assist for the batters and a bit of help for the bowlers. Expecting it to be the same pitch when these 2 good ranked teams take on each other.
Team news : CTB have no injury concerns. There are good possibility of Vernon coming in for Nortje who has been going for runs very consistently. Paarl Rocks could stick to their winning combination but they’ll be worried about Delport’s bad patch,they haven’t named injured Duminy’s replacement yet so Delport’s position should be safe. Skipper Faf has been getting out cheaply but it’s a matter of time he comes good. Pretorius played at 3 last game but it should be only for that particular game just to use him to counter attack in a low scoring game in a tough deck.
CTB Playing XI : Quinton Malan Ackerman Livingstone Asif Linde Riaz Vernon Magala Steyn Mahlokwana.
PR Playing XI: Davids Delport Faf Vince Pretorius Mosehle Udana Hardus Shamsi Mungroo.
Dream 11 team :
WK : Quinton(C)
Batters : Faf Vince(VC) Malan Delport Ackerman
All-rounders : Livingstone Pretorius
Bowlers : Steyn Wahab Hardus.
You can also pick Shamsi for Malan and strengthen Paarl bowling. Quinton yet again missed converting his blazing start but I expect him to soon get there. Vince has been in some form so he’s a good option too. Faf is due for a big knock. Delport too is a good player and he’s due to score some good runs. C Options : Quinton Vince Faf VC Options : Livingstone Pretorius
Grand League Tips : Will start with Asif Ali, many will ignore him because he’s tough to afford in the team because of his credit where they can pick better players. Two early wkts and we could see Asif batting more overs & once he gets in,he can tear apart pace attacks,we have seen that last year when he raced of to 80-90 so he’s worth C option in GL.
We have Marcus Ackerman who have seen him play,will rate his game.He has got the capability to score big with his way of playing. Not many will pick him as C. Delport can be seen in a rough patch which makes him good enough to be C in GL where not many will pick him because of his form.
