AB de Villiers’ men find themselves in a difficult situation in the tournament. With a solitary win after four games a position in the playoffs seems difficult for the side at the moment. They have lost their previous games against Cape Town Blitz, Durban Heat and Nelson Mandela Bay Giants with their only win coming against Paarl Rocks. Few would have expected to side to be in this situation in the tournament. Having their back to the walls ABD would have to inspire confidence in his side and lift up their spirits to win the upcoming game and keep their hopes alive in the tournament.
Wicketkeeper Gihahn Cloete along with his opening partner Theunis de Bruyn have looked good in this season so far. And with AB de Villiers they have a strong Top 3. But it is the likes of Tony de Zorzi, Sikandar Raza and Dean Elgar who haven’t made the contributions that the skipper would have expected from them. Bowling too has failed the side so far this season with pacers Andrew Birchr, Lutho Sipamla and Rory Kleinveldt not justifying their selection. It is only Jeevan Mendis who has looked good and the side needs to improve upon its bowling to win the next game.
Dane Vilas would have expected his side to be in a better position given the number of seasoned players in the side. After three games the side has won one. They lost badly against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants and Cape Town Blitz and earned their only win against Paarl Rocks. With the points table already heating up Vilas would want his men to pull up their socks and perform well against the Spartans and rise up on the points table. He has a good team at his disposal and would have to inspire them to perform and create an opportunity for the side in the playoffs.
In Chris Gayle and Ryan Rickelton they have a great opening combination but Gayle not having fired so far has been a bit of worry. Rassie van der Dussen and skipper Dane Vilas have looked in good touch so far in the tournament and so have Daniel Christian. With a good lower order the side would fancy its chances in the upcoming game. As far as their bowling is concerned Kagiso Rabada will strengthen the bowling attack. Duanne Olivier and Beuran Hendricks have bowled well and good support from Eddie Leie would make them a good attack and one that would be tough to score against.
Our Prediction for Tshwane Spartans vs Jozi Stars
Tshwane Spartans will win this game
The upcoming game between Tshwane Spartans and Jozi Stars would be one between two sides that are equally matched on paper. It would be nearly a do or die game for AB de Villiers’ Tshwane Spartans as they would have to win it to keep their hopes alive for the playoffs. Jozi Stars on the other hand haven’t played badly so far and if the key players in the side fire up they should put up a good show. Spartans who would be playing in front of their home crowd at SuperSport Park, Centurion and would love to use the crowd support to their advantage in what would be a great contest in the park.
Tshwane Spartans have a better batting line-up and would play at their home ground and this puts them in the drivers’ seat in the game.
