Teams Preview

Paarl Rocks

Paarl Rocks have been at the top of the MSL 2019 points table for a short while before being pushed down by the Giants. A couple of defeats to Tshwane Spartans and the recent one against Durban Heat have stopped their progress to the top spot.

The Rocks started the season with an 86-run win against Cape Town Blitz. After an abandoned game and a loss against the Spartans, they managed 3 consecutive wins against Jozi Stars (by 4 Wickets), Cape Town Blitz (by 2 Runs) and the Giants (by 31 Runs). However, two defeats, against Spartans and Durban Heat, in the last 3 games meant they could not make the top spot their own.

James Vince (217 runs in 7 matches) and Cameron Delport (207 runs in 8 matches) are among the top 10 run-getters of the tournament. Tabraiz Shamsi, with 12 wickets, has been the peak of the bowlers for the Rocks who along with Bjorn Fortuin makes it to the top 10 wickets takers of MSL 2019. It will be interesting to see whether Du Plessis led Paarl Rocks could dethrone the Giants in a home game. Key Players: James Vince, Cameron Delport, Tabraiz Shamsi

Paarl Rocks Actual Playing XI:

Sibonelo Makhanya, Faf du Plessis, Henry Davids, Kyle Verreynne, Tabraiz Shamsi, Ferisco Adams, Cameron Delport, James Vince, Isuru Udana, Bjorn Fortuin, Kerwin Mungroo

Nelson Mandela Bay Giants

In a thrilling contest against Cape Town Blitz, the Giants have moved up to the top spot and have confirmed the top three finish. The Giants defended 174 against a Cape Town Blitz who at one stage were 106 for 2 after 10 overs.

The Giants started the season with consecutive wins out of 5 with one match washed out. They beat Jozi Stars twice (by 24 Runs and 9 Wickets), followed by defeating Cape Town Blitz, and Durban Heat – both by 5 wickets. Paarl Rocks were the ones who stopped their juggernaut with a 31-run win. The Giants lost to the Durban Heat in the next match and seemed to have lost the momentum. However, they came back strongly to win the encounters against the Spartans and Cape Town Blitz. Having already confirmed the top-three finish, the Giants would want to finish the league on a high but more importantly, they would want to keep the top spot and with it a direct entry into the final.

Ben Dunk with 353 runs in 9 matches is the second-highest run-getter of MSL 2019. Captain JJ Smuts (219 Runs in 9 matches) also features in the top 10 run-getters. Imran Tahir, Junior Dala, and Bjorn Fortuin (PR) are among the top 10 wicket-takers of the tournament.
