PR Vs TST Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Coveted showpiece summit clash of the marquee league set to take the league by aplomb today.
All roads leading from a hectic, gruelling, tedious and vigorous scheduled of the Mzansi Super League 2019 lead to today. When Paarl Rocks and Tshwane Rocks step out in the middle this Monday for a shot at wrapping their hands around the glistening trophy in a bid to reserve their spot as the champions of this edition of the league, we are set to be regaled in an intriguing brand of cricket.
Having finished atop of the league standings to earn direct qualification into the revered summit clash of the frontier league, Paarl Rocks will be looking to pay testament to the emphatic stature they have earned as stalwarts. The side earned the moniker befittingly with six wins from 10 matches to finishing with 27 points.
Elsewhere, Tshwane Spartans had to battle it out in the eliminator against second placed Nelson Mandela Bay Giants, a match which transpired in judicious fashion for the side. In what was a clinical display by the side, they crafted out a 22 run win over their opponents, a clinical display in which they outshone the Giants with both the bat and ball.
Setting a 167 run target for their opponents, the side returned with an equally formidable performance with the ball, one which saw their bowlers rise to the occasion and snare wickets at crucial junctures to bundle out their opposition for 144. It’s a display they’ll be looking to emanate against a way superior opposition, one where they know the slightest slipups would be calamitous to their aspirations of winning the trophy.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A batting conducive surface, the conditions prevelant over here are going to be play out completely in favour of the batsmen. However, being a final and with the wicket just waning the tad bit in the second part of the tie, the team winning the toss will be looking to step out and set a target come today.

PR Vs TST Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
With 48 runs in 32 balls in the foregone encounter, Tshwane Spartans’ Petrus van Biljon acted as the safeguard of his side’s late surge towards a challenging score. The player played out the ideal knock to imbue momentum into his side, seeing him become our choice for this one.
PR Vs TST Dream11 Batsmen
He didn’t quite go on to canter his way to an emphatic scone the last time around but even the 27 runs AB de Villiers got in 15 balls the last time around were enough to exult his eclectic nature as a bat. Undoubtedly the focal point of his team’s batting unit, the myriad and guile filled player was always going to find a special place in our side for the day.
He is accompanied by opener Dean Elgar while we have the two players coming in from Paarl Rocks as well for this tie. We begin with Cameron Delport who needed just 22 balls to pile on an emphatic 39 runs the last time around for his side, pairing him alongside James Vince for this encounter.
PR Vs TST Dream11 All-Rounders
While his 31 runs were invaluable to his side, the knock grew in nature due to David Wiese being involved in an 86 run stand for the fifth wicket for his side. It was a crucial partnership, one which saw him and Biljon add on match winning runs for their side to see Wise become an instant pick for us after snagging the 3 wickets with the ball as well.
While from Paarl Rocks, with 27 runs with the ball in his side’s previous affair, Isuru Udana earns a place in our Dream 11 side. The 3-36 with the ball for Ferisco Adams in the same encounter sees him being roped in as well by us, a spell which saw the opposition stumble given the bowler’s baffling line and length..
PR Vs TST Dream11 Bowling Order
His counterpart, spinner Tabraiz Shamsi got 2-25 with the ball in the same fixture to see him come in to partner up Adams for the outing along with Bjorn Fortuin who was ruthless in his restrictive spell of just 19 runs in 4 overs. From Tshwane Spartans meanwhile, the lone selection of Corbin Bosch will be wrapping up our Dream 11 side for the encounter.
Captain And Vice-Captain
