Match Details :
Venue : Johannesburg
Date : 1/12/2019
Time : 1:30 PM IST.
MSL Match No.21 between Jozi Stars and Paarl Rocks. Jozi Stars who are the defending champions have had a horrible start one could think of. With 6 games played,they are yet to register a win. It’s not like their squad is poor,it’s just they haven’t played as a unit yet to deliver. Last game they were cruising in against Tshwane but collapsed from nowhere to lose by 20 runs denting their confidence even more badly. Other side we have Paarl Rocks who come into this game with a defeat against Tshwane but still they’re placed at 3 in the table with 4 wins out of 7 losing just 2.
Pitch Report :
Last game played here,it was bowlers who have had a great time,Tshwane defending 155 but more than bowlers it’s the Jozi batting which made it possible with a horrible collapse. There’s enough for the batters in this deck than what we saw in the last game. A 160-170 game is expected here in the next encounter.
Team news :
Chris Gayle has played his last game other day. Shoaib Malik is going to replace Gayle.
Rickleton should be coming back into the XI & opening today.
Coetzee might come back in place of Olivier.
Pretorius should come back in place of Makhanya.
Paarl should be playing with their same XI.
Playing XI :
JOZ : Reeza Rickleton Bavuma Dussen Malik Christian Qeshile Phangiso Williams Rabada Coetzee.
PR : Davids Delport Faf Vince Pretorius Mosehle Udana Ferisco Viljoen Fortuin Shamsi.
Joz vs PR Dream XI team :
WK : Rickleton
Batters : Faf(vc) Vince Reeza(c) Dussen Delport
Allrounders : Christian Pretorius
Bowlers : Rabada Viljoen Shamsi
C options : Reeza Faf Vince
VC Options : Rickleton Bavuma Pretorius Christian Malik Dussen
Picking Reeza as C because he’s the best when it comes to SA domestic,this MSL he hasn’t had such a great run but still he’s the 2nd leading run scorer this MSL.
If Pretorius doesn’t play,you could possibly slot in Malik for Davids/Dussen.
Grand league Tips :
Rickleton is the first option for C who would open the batting.
Dussen going through bad form but he bats at 4,we know how good a player he is so he’s worth C in GL.
Malik who will not be picked by many could be a pretty good option for C as he gives few overs too.
