PR vs JS Dream11 , Paarl Rocks vs Jozi Stars
Venue : Paarl
Date : 22/11/2019
Time : 9 PM IST.
PR vs JS Dream11: teams who are in the bottom 3. Jozi Stars the defending champions have had a horrible start to MSL 2.0 losing all 4 of their games played so far whereas Paarl hammered Capetown blitz,washed out one and lost the 3rd game to Tshwane with a Elgar special.
Pitch Report :
Last game played here between Paarl & Tshwane we saw it had everything for the batters & very little for the bowlers. It’s a very good batting deck and it should be almost the same today with bit more assist to new ball bowlers under lights.
Jozi Stars have had a very bad start,Reeza not being consistent,Gayle failing every other game,Dussen who was the MVP last season going through a very bad patch with only the skipper Bavuma doing the job with the bat for his team.
Considering this is Gayle’s last game this MSL where his contract is signed only for first 5 games,I feel Jozi will play him irrespective of his bad form.
Jozi Stars should be playing the same XI because there’s not much quality backup.
Paarl Rocks too should be sticking to their XI as the players haven’t done much wrong.
With Vince coming in,their batting has got better & he already shown how good he can be in such leagues in the first game.
Davids has been consistently getting 30-40 but not converting it.
Delport is a power striker of the ball & he has got starts in 2 games but he throwed it away so a good knock is somewhere around.
Playing XI :
Jozi : Reeza Gayle Bavuma Rassie Qeshile Christian Harmer Coetzee Rabada Phangiso Olivier.
Paarl : Davids Delport Faf Vince Pretorius Mosehle Udana Viljoen Fortuin Shamsi Mungroo.
WK : Qeshile
Batters : Faf,Dussen,Reeza,Vince,Delport,Bavuma
All-rounders : Pretorius
Bowlers : Rabada Viljoen Shamsi.
Going with 6 batters as the pitch assist batters very much,also I could see most have picked Mosehle due to his points but he bats at 6 whereas Qeshile bats at 5 besides considering Jozi’s batting form,chances of Qeshile batting more overs is a possibility.
Reeza is picked as C because how good he turns out when he’s playing in SA domestic or MSL,much dependent batsman.
Gayle can have a final blast in this pitch but it’s a risky option.
You can also go with Christian for Dussen if Jozi bowls first as chances of Christian bowling at death is high.
C options : Reeza,Delport,Faf,Vince.
VC Options : Bavuma,Dussen,Pretorius.
People can go with many batters considering how the pitch faired last game so here you need to take a punt and pick more bowlers because it was a day game whereas this game is going to be played under lights.
As Gayle is not picked by more than 50%,easy punt for GL.
I also found Davids & Delport are picked less than 20-25%,both opens & both have the capability to even get a ton when they gets going.
Delport blitz is due & he’s a very good option.
Udana is another option who can get you wkts at death and can be a very handy bat so he’s worth C option.
