Pitch And Weather Conditions

On Friday, the weather will be patchy rain possible with the daytime temperature reaching 33 °c. Nighttime temperature are expected to be 22 °c. It will be mostly dry with little or no precipitation.

Venue Details

The match is scheduled to be played at SuperSport Park, Centurion. It's a very good surface for batting. Among the international matches, 241 made by South Africa against England is the highest total. The average score batting first is 173.

Toss Prediction

We did not get results in the previous two matches scheduled here in this tournament. Out of 5 MSL games played here in the last season, 3 times the chasing team have won, while twice the teams batting first have won that includes one match where D/L method was applied. It will be a good toss to win and bowl first.

Winning Prediction

With four wins in six games, Paarl Rocks earned 19 points while Tshwane Spartans who have 14 points from their five games. The Rocks cruised to the top of the point table after defeating NMBG, while the Spartans too, enter this game after a win over Jozi Stars. Each side has prominent players, with Faf in Paarl Rocks and de Villiers in Tshwane Spartans, the match is expected to produce some thrilling moments.

The head to head statistics are in favor of Tshwane Spartans, and to add to that, they who are playing at home. Our prediction is that Tshwane Spartans would defeat Paarl Rocks.
