Mzansi 16th Match Squads Comparison
Dane Vilas has too many worries up his sleeves. After four games his side is occupying the bottom half of the table with a single win. Apart from the convincing win against Paarl Rocks there isn’t anything that the side can be proud about. Despite having so many talented players and international stars the side has failed to get its act together and they are making mistakes in crucial phases of the game. Their last loss to Tshwane Spartans would have demoralized the side. Vilas would want his men to come out of this phase and win the upcoming game.
Ryan Rickelton and Reeza Hendricks form a good opening pair and batted well this season. Rassie van der Dussen has done well. Skipper Dane Vilas along with Petrus van Biljon are playing the perfect finishers’ role. The batting has been good for the side so far in the season. In is the bowling where the side looks little week. While Kagiso Rabada is troubling the opponents with his bowling others have struggled. Simon Harmer did well in the last game but it is the absence of a quality spinner that is proving to be the side’s greatest weakness. The bowlers would have to stick to their plans for the side to do well in the upcoming game.
It isn’t easy being in Albie Morkel’s shoes these days as Durban Heat find themselves at the bottom of the table after having played four games. The only victory they had was against Tshwane Spartans a game that was decided by DLS Method. Their performance in the tournament so far would surprise many given that they have one of the most talented sides in the tournament. Morkel would have to marshal his troops well in the next game. He’d like the big players in the side to live up to their names in a game that can very well decide their fate for the rest of the season.
Hashim Amla’s poor form is hurting his side and his new opening partner Temba Bavuma too didn’t set the scoreboard on fire in the last game. David Miller has looked good in odd patches while Heinrich Klaasen isn’t in the best of form. The top order is letting the side down something the side would like to change. It has always been the middle order that has come to rescue. They have a strong bowling line up which can prove to be the difference between the two sides. Vernon Philander with the new ball along with Marchant de Lange makes it look strong. The spin combination of Keshav Maharaj and the young sensation Rashid Khan may make all the difference in the next game.
Our Prediction for Jozi Stars vs Durban Heat
Durban Heat will win this game
It will be one of the most interesting games of Mzansi Super League 2018 where Jozi Stars would take on Durban Heat at their home ground New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg. With the teams occupying the two bottom places on the points table it would be a very important game for both the sides. A win here would open up their prospects for rest of the tournament while a loss might just signal and end of dream for the playoffs. Both the sides pack talent but haven’t delivered so far in the tournament. With stakes high we should have a great fight in the park on our hands.
It is neck and neck between the two sides but with two good spinners in the side Durban Heat are just nose ahead of Jozi Stars
