JJ Smuts would want to put the setback of the last season behind as his side plays at home in its first game for the season. He is leading an exciting bunch of players and would want them to show their determination and play well as a team against a strong opponent. A win here would add to their confidence for the rest of the season. JJ Smuts played well with the bat last season and would be looking to start from where he had left.
Jason Roy at the top adds punch to the batting like-up where they have good players in the form of Marco Marais, Farhaan Behardien and Heino Kuhn. Chris Morris and Onke Nyaku will be expected to do the big-hitting towards the end of the innings. As far as bowling goes the side would expect to see good start from Junior Dala and Beuran Hendricks with the new ball. Dala has a great season last year and with Imran Tahir, in the side, the bowling attack looks strong. Chris Morris and Nyaku will have to avoid leaking runs in the middle overs for the side.

Temba Bavuma would be upset having failed in their opening game of the season against Cape Town Blitz but the skipper would like to look at the positives from the last game.

The weather would be by and large good with odd clouds at Port Elizabeth on November 10. It is a newly laid surface and hence there would be some assistance for the fast bowlers. Batsmen have to be cautious in the early overs of the game but runs would come thick and fast on this surface.
St George's Park, Port Elizabeth has been one of the best wickets to bowl for the fast bowlers as there is seam and swing. Ball comes onto the bat nicely and hence stroke makers have done well on most occasions. Spinners have to bowl real hard on this surface to get their rewards.
The wicket is expected to offer assistance to the fast bowlers in the early overs of the game and would get better as the game progresses. The side that wins the toss would look to bowl first and exploit the early juice on the surface and get their opponents out for a low total.
Jozi Stars didn’t start the season as they would have liked but there were several positives for the side when it came to their batting in the first game. As for the hosts Paarl Rocks, it would be a game under pressure as they are playing at home against one of the best sides this season. The batting line-up for the Jozi Stars looks very strong and hence they would start as favorites in this game.
Jozi Stars to win the game!
