JOZ Vs PR Dream11 Team And Match Report: Paarl Rocks will to relinquish their lost first place in the league.
Paarl Rocks were in exquisite touch till the previous encounter with the side failing to put one step wrong in this instalment of the Mzansi Super League to sit in the echelons of the points tally till their foregone contest. However with a defeat the last time around, the team ended up slipping into second place, more importantly giving their competitors glimpse of how to defeat them.
Their first defeat in four matches, it was the manner in which the defeat came about for the side which would have hurt them in particular. The side put on a meek, tepid, tentative and bleak batting effort, one which restricted them to a mere 126, a score Tshwane Spartans ended up peeling past with 5 overs and 8 overs to spare.
And when they step out onto the field today, the side couldn’t have asked for a better encounter to overhaul that underachieving performance. Up against last placed Jozi Stars, Paarl Rocks are taking on an opposition which has lost every single of the six matches they have plied out their sordid brand of cricket in to remain the only side to yet register a win in the league.
They were also defeated by Tshwane Spartans the last time around, a 20 run defeat as they faltered in their pursuit of 156, a defeat which emphasised how horrid they have been this season. With today’s encounter hardly any easier, the side look set to be pummelled and battered in this one, a match which looks set to see Paarl Rocks move back into first place.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
The scores over here have been topsy-turvy with us unsure of what kind of surface we’ll be doled out today. However, typically the track over here has been reasonably safe for the batters and apart from misbehaviour for the quicks with the new ball, the bats should be able to settle into their groove and plunder runs today.
With their being a solid chance of rain today, the side winning the toss is set to come out and chase today.

JOZ Vs PR Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Although Paarl Rocks’ Mangaliso Mosehle comes way too down the batting order for his side, the wicket-keeper is still going to be our choice for today’s contest owing to his role with the gloves. He’s up against a side who are paper thin in their batting setup, a team set to lose its way and see Mosehle herald his way a slew of points through dismissals.
JOZ Vs PR Dream11 Batsmen
With 35 runs in the previous outing, Jozi Stars’ Temba Bavuma becomes the first player to be picked up by us for the impending encounter. He’s someone who has come up with runs on a regular basis, a player who alongside opener Reeza Hendricks has waged a lone battle for his side to see us opt for both the imperious performers for this one.
From the opposition elsewhere we have chosen opener Henry Davids and James Vince, both names who are reminiscent to each other in their batting styles. The two have imbued in them strokeplay and wrist work which has seen them subject themselves to a hoard of runs, players we envisage engrossing us in stellar displays today. Faf du Plessis comes in as well from the unit to wrap up our picks from the side for this one.
JOZ Vs PR Dream11 All-Rounders
With a slew of all-rounders being out of action recently, we have opted for just the singular pick from both units for this encounter. We begin with Daniel Christian from Jozi Stars, someone who ended up snaring the two wickets in the previous encounter for his side and will be asked to emulate the same rampant performance in this clash as well.
From the other side of the docket, we have decided to usher in Isuru Udana to bring an end to our picks for today’s clash in this facet.
JOZ Vs PR Dream11 Bowling Order
After sending down four overs for 1-21, Bjorn Fortuin was only one of the two wicket takers for his side in an otherwise abject and appalling bowling display. The will and grittiness he showed was a testament to his skill set with the ball to see us rope him into our side for the day alongside spinner Tabraiz Shamsi.
From Jozi Stars meanwhile we have decided to immerse ourselves in the services of new ball and death overs operator Kagiso Rabada, someone capable of making early headway with Aaron Phangiso coming in as well after getting the two wickets the last time around.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Vince will be leading our side out as the captain while Bavuma is selected as the vice-captain.
