Nelson Mandela Bay Giants

Batting all-rounder JJ Smuts will be leading the Bay Giants in MSL 2019. England opener Jason Roy will be an important feature in the NMBG batting line-up. The team has 3 wicket-keeper batsmen in the squad and 5 all-rounders. Queensland left-hand wicket-keeper batsman Ben Dunk will add experience to the side along with bowling all-rounder Chris Morris.

Imran Tahir has had a great year with some impressive performances in T20 leagues around the world. His presence in the team adds to the bowling strength along with Junior Dala and Bueran Hendricks. JJ Smuts is also handy with his left-arm orthodox bowling. The bowlers will be up against a strong Jozi Stars batting line-up that consists of Gayle, Reeza Hendricks at the top. While Rassie van der Dussen and Daniel Christian form the middle-order of the Jozi Stars, NMBG’s Imran Tahir and Chris Morris would need to pick wickets to get through the Star’s middle-order.

Jozi Stars

Jozi Stars went up against Cape Town Blitz in the season opener at Johannesburg. The Blitz batting line-up proved too hot to handle for the Stars as Kagiso Rabada remained wicketless. While Daniel Christian was the top bowler with 1 wicket for 28 runs, JS ended up with a target of 214 runs set for themselves. In addition to D Christian, Simon Harmer and Dane Paterson picked a wicket each, bowling at 12 and 9.50 r.p.o.

While the target was a big one, with Chris Gayle in the side, it would seem a plausible one. However, Gayle was the lowest scorer among the top 4 with 17 runs. Reeza Hendricks gave a tough fight scoring 80 off 53 balls while skipper Temba Bavuma scored a quick 38 off 15 at number 3. Stars have a strong middle-order with Rassie van der Dussen and Daniel Christian to follow at number 4 and 5. These 5 batsmen contributed to Stars’ 198-5 innings chasing 213 in the 1st match.
