PR vs TST Dream11 Prediction & Preview | Final Match | Mzansi Super League 2019
Paarl Rocks will take on Tshwane Spartans for the Final Match of Mzansi Super League 2019 at Boland Park, Paarl. We will cover PR vs TST Dream11 Prediction, Match Preview, Fantasy Cricket Tips and Top Picks of the match.
Paarl Rocks have played well this season and completed at 1st position in the points table in the league stage, and they were the first to enter into the finals.
In the last match of their league stage, Batting first Paarl Rocks were good with the bat and scored a decent total of 168 runs. There wasn’t a single player who played a big inning. Instead, it was a team effort where everyone contributed to the total. Cameron Delport and Kyle Verreynne with 39 and 36* runs were the top scorers for the team. But they bowled well to defend their total and won the match. Ferisco Adams and Tabraiz Shamsi picked up 3 and 2 wickets respectively. They look strong in both batting and bowling departments, and they will put up a solid fight against Tshwane Spartans.
Tshwane Spartans didn’t have a great time this season as 5 out of 10 matches were washed out for them. In remaining games, they managed to win 3 games and barely qualified for the Eliminator. But in the Eliminator, the way they played showed everyone that they deserved to be in finals.
In the Eliminator, Batting First Tshwane Spartans lost wickets at regular intervals. They looked in lots of trouble as they were 79 for 4 after 11 overs, but it was once again Pite van Biljon who played well when Spartans needed him and scored 48* runs along with David Weise’s 31* runs who was playing his 1st match this season and put up a fighting total of 166 runs. The bowlers were very impressive in this match and restricted the opponents to just 144 runs, and Spartans won by 22 runs in the Eliminator. The hero of the game was David Weise who just not only batted well but also picked up 3 wickets, Morne Morkel was once again impressive with his spell and picked up 2 wickets just for 22 runs in his 4 overs. Tshwane Spartans though didn’t have a high season; they would want to forget it and give the best they got on the night of the finals and win the title.
