The Mzansi Super League started with the hype of watching AB de Villiers back in action but in terms of the results, the Tshwane Spartans team us struggling to make an impact. Despite having a good number of players who fit the requirements of this format, the Spartans lost three of the four matches they played thus far. The one game they won was against Paarl Rocks which was by a one-run margin while defending a 200+ target. The last game against the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants was no less than a heart-break for the Spartans in their home debut.

De Villiers got out a ball before the rain stopped play which pushed them below the par score on the DLS method. They will now face Jozi Stars who won one of the three matches in the tournament so far. In the three games, both Jozi’s batting and bowling came to the party in only one game that they won. In the other two games, the Johannesburg franchise was played by the opposition in all departments.

Match Details:

The 13th match of the Mzansi Super League will be played between Tshwane Spartans and Jozi Stars at the SuperSport Park in Centurion.

The match starts at 2:00 PM local time (12:00 PM GMT) (5:30 PM IST).

Pitch Condition/Report:

The scores at the venue vary depending on the level of the sport. At the domestic level, the venue usually witnesses scores around 140 but in T20Is, scores of 170+ have been recorded in four of the six unreduced matches. The chasing teams have won the last five T20 games played at this venue prior to the previous match.

AB de Villiers (C), Eoin Morgan, Lungi Ngidi, Robbie Frylinck, Jeevan Mendis, Theunis de Bruyn, Rory Kleinveldt, Sean Williams, Gihahn Cloete, Lutho Sipamla, Tony de Zorzi, Dean Elgar, Andrew Birch, Sikandar Raza, Shaun von Berg, Rilee Rossouw, Eldred Hawken.

Probable XI:

Tshwane Spartans:

AB de Villiers (C), Gihahn Cloete (WK), Theunis de Bruyn, Tony de Zorzi, Sean Williams, Sikandar Raza, Jeevan Mendis, Robbie Frylinck, Corbin Bosch, Rory Kleinveldt/Andrew Birch, Lutho Sipamla.

Jozi Stars:

Dane Vilas (C), Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Ryan Rickelton, Daniel Christian, Dwaine Pretorius, Simon Harmer, Eddie Leie, Duanne Olivier, Kagiso Rabada, Beuran Hendricks.

Power Picks:

Everyone in Jozi Stars’ bowling attack has the ability to take wickets and restrict the batsmen. If the likes of Kagiso Rabada, Duanne Olivier and Beuran Hendricks succeed, there is no stopping the Jozi’s.

Best Playing XI:

Dane Vilas, AB de Villiers, Rassie van der-Dussen, Theunis de Bruyn, Ryan Rickelton, Sikandar Raza, Daniel Christian, Robert Frylinck, Beuran Hendricks, Lutho Sipamla, Duanne Olivier.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

AB de Villiers wasted his wicket going for rash shots in the previous two games but it shouldn’t discourage you from picking him as a multiplier. Theunis de Bruyn and Rassie van der Dussen are the two who can be considered as well since they are worth the money.

Expert Advice:

As expected, based on Gihahn Cloete’s T20 batting graph, the keeper-batsman scored in single-digit in the previous match after starting with two fifties. Tshwane made some interesting changes to their bowling attack which might not be constant for a while.

Probable Winners:

Jozi Stars have a really good chance against Tshwane Spartans as they have better depth in both batting and bowling compared to the later.
