JOZ Vs DUR Dream11, Pitch And Match Report: Sorry Jozi Stars look to be handed over another defeat when they face off against Durban Heat today.
Winless after 8 matches in the Mzansi Super League, all Jozi Stars will be wanting is for their horrid time in the marquee league to come to an end. The side have floundered with their inclement brand of cricket seeing them being wiped the floor with, a team which has completely fallen apart in this edition of the South African T20 tournamnet.
Slumped right in the dearth of the league standings with 0 points, it’s clear that Jozi Stars campaign has run its course. With the side having no where left to go as the league moves towards its business end for the league stage encounters, barring pride, the side has nothing left to fight for when they take on Durban Heat today.
Putting on 172 on the scoreboard for Paarl Rocks the last time around, their bowling unit was put to bed with ease to see their opponents cruise through to a 5 wicket win on the day. Elsewhere, their opponents Durban Heat are coming into this one with three wins in a row, one which included a stupendous 196 run chase against Paarl Rocks in their most recent outing.
It was a performance which saw the side not only set a statement with their performance but also make massive strides in the league standings to move into 4th place. With another win today seeing hem breach into the top 3 and with it propel themselves into a place for a spot in the ensuing round, they’ll be looking to come hot out of the block in this one and ingrain in place yet another immaculate display.

JOZ Vs DUR Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Dane Vilas failed to muster up runs the last time around by the player continues to find a place in our side for this clash as well. It’s not only down to his role as a bat but also the role he occupies keeping wickets for his side, one which will see him pull off a slew of catches and stumpings on the day.
JOZ Vs DUR Dream11 Batsmen
Alex Hales has been as exquisite in the foregone encounters as he was abject in the opening stages of the series. The 97 runs in scored in 55 balls the last time around was his second straight half-century, a pristine knock which saw the opener help his side chase down a gargantuan 196 run target with relative ease.
Wihan Lubbe will also be coming in from the side for us for this clash while from the other side of the section we have decided to divulge in the selection of a trio. We begin with Reeza Hendricks who scored a rampant 74 runs for his side in the bygone contest, a knock which included the 9 boundaries.
Temba Bavuma comes in as well after getting 37 runs with the bat in the same encounter with Rassie van de-Dussen coming in as well after getting 28 runs.
JOZ Vs DUR Dream11 All-Rounders
Just the one pick for us over here with us selecting Daniel Christian from Jozi Stars given his guile and myriad capability as a player. He’s someone who has manifested his worldclass skill set in both the dockets of the game to emerge as a well rounded performer, someone we envision contributing in both the slots of the game come today.
JOZ Vs DUR Dream11 Bowling Order
We have kept things levelly balanced in this docket of our Dream 11 side, getting in the two bowlers apiece from either side. We begin with our picks from Jozi Stars first with us moving in for their new ball operator Kagiso Rabada, someone who returned with staggering figures of 3-36 the last time around.
The two wickets for Duanne Oliver in that encounter sees him come in as well while from the other side of the unit we have opted for a seamless blend of pace and spin. Both are names capable of making the opposition wobble and totter and given the paper thin identity of the opposition’s middle-order, the two can easily end up leaving them distraught.
JOZ Vs DUR Dream 11 Captain And Vice-Captain
Hales is our unit’s captain for the impending tie while Hendricks will be our vice-captain.
