The 10th game of the MSL 2019 will be played between Paarl Rocks and Tshwane Spartans at Boland Park in Paarl on Sunday. The home side Paarl Rocks made a sensational start to their MSL 2019 campaign on Sunday, hammering Cape Town Blitz by 86 runs as they bowled the visitors out for just 84 after posting a strong total of 170/9. However, their second game was ended in washout and they shared the point with the Durban Heat. Now, with 7 points they are currently at second place in the point table and have the best NRR of +4.300 amongst all the 6 teams in MSL. The home side would be eying for another clinical performance and carry on the momentum.
On the other hand, Tshwane Spartan's side are yet to play the full game in the ongoing MSL 2019. Their first match against Durban Heat was washed out without a ball being bowled. Whereas, in their second game, the match has been called off just after the 7 overs of the game due to rain. However, they'd feel they've escaped jail in the second game as they have lost the four wickets on the score of 33 runs in 7.1 overs. It was a pretty bad start of Spartans to MSL 2019. The Spartan possesses arguably one of the best T20 batsman AB de Villiers. He has got great success in all the T20 leagues across the globe. The Spartans would be hoping for the full game without any rain disturbance.

Paarl Rocks players would be high on confidence following a thumping 84 runs victory in the first game. what will have pleased the coaching team and captain Faf Du Plessis will have been the fact that all players made contributions as three of them had innings between 30-40 runs to post a competitive total without having to rely on one individual - especially after overcoming the news that JP Duminy will miss the entire tournament through injury.
The bowling unit was equally as effective as the batting line-up as Du Plessis used six different bowlers, with each one of them taking at least one wicket, and all of them had economy rates of 5.66 or less which will give them great confidence coming into this game with what should be an unchanged team. In batting, the side would be relying heavily on Faf du Plessis, Dwaine Pretorius and Cameron Delport to do the bulk of the scoring.
Captain Faf du Plessis was the standout performer in the batting department last season and accumulated 318 runs in 9 matches at an average of 53.00 with four half-centuries to his name. This year as well he got to a good start, scored 38 runs in just 20 balls in the first game. He will be keen to score big and win many matches for the side.
