Match Details:

The 10th Match of the Mzansi Super League (MSL) 2019 between Paarl Rocks and Tshwane Spartans will be played at Boland Park in Paarl.

Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

Tshwane Spartans’ situation is exactly like Durban Heat. Even the Spartans are yet to take the field with both their matches getting abandoned. Rather their erstwhile encounter had stopped due to a floodlight failure which was followed by lightning and rain and the play never resumed. The Heinrich Klaasen-led side will be hoping for the rain to stay away when they take the field on Sunday.

AB de Villiers of Spartans will be up against his dear friend Faf du Plessis who is the captain of Paarl Rocks. They got off to a great start to their season beating the Cape Town Blitz by 86 runs. But then travelled to Durban to witness the rains. Effectively, they have played only a solitary match and after the washout, have seven points to their name and are at the third place in the table.

Weather Report

The weather in Paarl is extremely pleasant and perfect for the game of cricket to take place. The sun will be out when the two teams will walk out on the field and the temperature will hover around 22-24 Degrees Celsius during the match. There is no chance of rain according to AccuWeather.

Pitch Condition

The Boland Park has hosted only a solitary match so far this season and the surface was a good one for batting in that game. Expect a similar kind of pitch to be on offer for this match as well. The team winning is expected to bat first and then put pressure on the opposition.

Average first innings score: 170 (only 1 match played this season)

Record of the chasing teams: Won – 0; Lost – 1
