Mzansi Super League 1st Match Squad Comparison

Jozi Stars

As the defending champions play their first game of the season it isn’t yet clear who would be leading the side in the game with last year’s skipper Dane Vilas having made a move to Durban Heat. The side though has some of the best cricketers in South Africa and T20 superstar like Chris Gayle in the camp. The first game of the season is always a challenging one and it would be interesting to see how the players approach the game under a new captain. A win here would surely boost their confidence ahead of the future games.

Batting looks formidable for the side with Chris Gayle at the top of the order opening the batting with Reeza Hendricks and these players complement one another. Rassie van der Dussen, Temba Bavuna, and Sohaib Malik in the middle order, makes it well balanced and these players are proven performers in this format. The lower order boasts of good hitters in Daniel Christian and Ryan Rickelton. They have a strong bowling line up led by Kagiso Rabada. Simon Harmer and Aaron Phangiso add exciting prospects to the bowling attack. Dane Paterson and Daniel Christian will look to bowl well in the middle overs and contain the opponents.

Cape Town Blitz

Quinton de Kock is likely to lead the side in this season and he would like to erase the sad memories of the last season. The side had played exceptionally well last year only to have a bad day in the final and lose it. They are a side packed with exciting players and the skipper would want his men to excel in the game. Quinton de Kock who has played T20 leagues around the world would know the importance of making a good start to the season and want to start off this season with a win.

They have a good opening pair in Janneman Malan and Quinton de Kock and they had done well as a pair last season and shall be looking to repeat that success. Liam Living Stone, George Linde, and Marques Ackerman will need to do well in the middle order as the side would be missing Asif Ali who is on national duty. Vernon Philander and Mohammad Nawaz with their hitting abilities towards the end make the batting line-up exciting. Dale Steyn will need to lead the attack from the front with Anrich Nortje by his side with the new ball. Linde and Philander will be looking to use all their experience in the game and pose a threat to the opposition.

Our Prediction for Jozi Stars vs Cape Town Blitz

Jozi Stars shall win this game

It is the season opener in the Mzansi Super League 2019 where defending champions Jozi Stars would be taking on last year’s runner-up Cape Town Blitz at the New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg. It is expected to be an exciting contest given the strengths of the two sides. There are good hitters in both the camps along with the finest bowlers in this format of the game. A win would boost their confidence for the rest of the season and both sides would be looking to make a statement in the very first game of the tournament which will set up a good contest.

The two teams match each other in all departments of the game but Jozi Stars have a slightly better batting line-up and this would put them ahead of Cape Town Blitz going into this game.
