DUR vs TST Dream11 Best Team : Durban Heat and Tshwane Spartans get their season underway today when the two meet each other in the second time of the day.
The second match of the second edition of the Mzansi Super League sees Durban Heat and Tshwane Spartans going at loggerheads against each other in a match which has all the ingredients in place of being an enthralling affair. Both the sides come packed with worldclass and myriad names, players who know exactly what it takes to succeed on the biggest stage of them all.
With this being a relatively small tournamnet with six sides partaking for a spot in the top 3 in a bid to make it to the semi-finals, for either side, the tournamnet opener holds additional importance. A win today will give them immense momentum ahead of their sortie in the showpiece league, one which will see either side clash heads against each of their counterpart on two occasions, taking the total number of matches to 32 in the league.
The match also marks the return of South Africa’s gargantuan and one of the most loved players in the country, ther own child AB de Villiers on the cricketing field. The player returns into action for Tshwane Spartans after having last played in the Vitality Blast, adding immense substance to the visiting unit’s setup for this one. Elsewhere, Durban Heat themselves are an extremely solid unit, a seamless blend of international players and stalwarts from South Africa’s cricketing circuit to make this encounter a jaffer of an affair.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
The threat of rain intervening today and lashing the stadium is a very realistic one with the likelihood of this being a curtailed encounter or an altogether abandoned clash being extremely high. The rain battering the track will make an already treacherous wicket an even more adverse and appalling one for the batsmen with the team winning the toss set to field first today given the rain.
