PR vs JOZ Dream11, Probable Playing 11, Pitch And Match Report: Winless Jozi Stars stand in far of becoming the first side to end their sojourn this season.
The worst side in the ongoing edition of the Mzansi Super League by quite some distance, this has been a howler of a campaign for Jozi Stars. Failing to win a singular encounter in the four matches they have contested till now, another defeat today would all but bring down the curtains on what has been an appalling, abject and abysmal campaign for the side.
While the team have left their rapturous supporters perplexed with their brand of cricket, what has been a bigger some of bemusement is the way the side have fallen apart despite the slew of worldclass names lining up the unit. This is a side which has completely failed to justify the acumen it is brimming with, a season which wouldn’t have been fathomed by anyone when the league made an advent for its second season.
The side saw their misery further in their most recent outing in the league, a match where they flayed by 9 wickets after managing t muster up a mere 108 while batting first. They were clinically outshone and decimated by Nelson Mandela Bay Giants, a performance which emoted everything wrong with the side at the moment, something Paarl Rocks will be looking to build on come today’s encounter.
Paarl Rocks on the other hand find themselves in fourth spot at the moment with the side having endured every kind of result in the three matches they have played. They’ll be bitterly disappointed by their last performance though, a match which saw them completely catapulting defence of what should have been a target to leave their opponents in angst in as Tshwane Spartans chased down the 186 with 8 wickets in hand.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
One of the best tracks in the country to bat on, this is a surface which is completely devoid of anything in it for the bowlers. The ball couldn’t rise onto the bat nay better over here and with the surface retaining its shape across the match, the team winning the toss is bound to come out and chase here.

PR vs JOZ Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
He scored just 14 runs the last time around but given the way some stellar names were brought down to their feet, the little knock is one to see us move in with Jozi Stars’ wicket-keeper, Sinethemba Qeshile for today’s encounter. Given the way his side is prone to a batting collapse, he will get enough overs in the ambit of his side’s batting sortie to come out and score in this one.
PR vs JOZ Dream11 Batsmen
This is turning out to be a soiree where Chris Gayle would just be wanting to pack his bags up and get done with the league. The Jozi Stars opener has completely failed to get going in this edition of the T20 league but we’ll be entrusting him for this one given the conditions and identity of the opposition’s bowling unit, two factors which might just see him recover his touch.
Reeza Hendricks on the other hand has kept waging a lone battle for his side, trying to compensate for Gayle’s repeated failures with some good knocks to find a place in our Dream 11 outfit alongside Temba Bavuma who top scored for the side the last time around with 27 runs. From the opposition we are making James Vince our first pick after his fiery knock of 86 in 55 balls in the side’s last outing with opener Henry Davids coming in as well after getting 30 in the same tie.
PR vs JOZ Dream11 All-Rounders
We have gotten in the one player apiece from either side in this docket of our Dream 11 side with both coming due to their reminiscent roles for their respective sides. Both Simon Harmer of Jozi Stars and Dwaine Pretorius of the opposition come bearing escalated batting roles along with being handed over crucial overs with the ball as well to become our choice for this one.
PR vs JOZ Dream11 Bowling Order
We have gone in for a seamless blend of pace and spin from Paarl Rocks for this clash with us brining in their frontline spearheads from both the dockets in the form of Hardus Viljoen and Tabraiz Shamsi. These are two bowlers who’ll be sending down a vicious line and length, bowlers who’ll be well aware that anything pitched in the right area with deviation will leave a paper thin opposition batting unit flummoxed.
Kagiso Rabada is our singular selection from the other side meanwhile with the bowler being asked to dole out his brand of pace in both the opening and death overs.
PR vs JOZ Dream11 Captain And Vice-Captain
Bavuma is going to captain our side out for the day whilst Vince is the vice-captain.
