The 24th match of the 2019-20 Mzansi Super League will be played between Paarl Rocks and Durban Heat at Boland Park, Paarl.
The match starts at 09:00 PM IST (03:30 PM GMT / 05:30 PM LOCAL). This match can be viewed on Sony Liv and Fan Code app in India.
Preview for Dream11 Fantasy:
Paarl Rocks team is currently ranked 1st in MSL 2019 league table with 23 points in eight games. The team has done really well in the ongoing tournament on the back of some convincing performances produced by their players.
Paarl’s batting line-up looks strong with the likes of Faf du Plessis, Henry Davids and Cameron Delport. Henry has amassed 153 runs in seven games at a good strike rate of 142.06 for his side. Tabraiz Shamsi also looks instrumental with the ball, who has grabbed as many as 10 wickets in his seven outings.
Durban Heat has been a bit unlucky in this MSL season. Their first two encounters got abandoned due to rain and lost the third game. However, they seemed to have found their mojo having won their previous two encounters. Wihan Lubbe and David Miller have started contributing with the bat which is good news for their side. One department in which they need to improve is their bowling if they want to outclass the league toppers in the upcoming match.
The sun will be out for the whole day in Paarl and the temperature will also be fine at 9 PM when the action is scheduled to begin. The temperature will hover around 18-19 Degrees Celsius while there is no chance of rain.
The track at Boland Park is expected to go in favour of batsmen, who can pile up big runs at this venue. However, pacers will also get assistance from the wicket but they have to hit the ball in the right areas. The game is expected to be a high scoring affair according to the trends followed in this season. The team winning the toss is expected to field because the sides have found it easy to chase at this venue.
Average first innings score: 161 (Three games played at the Boland Park so far in MSL 2019)

Cameron Delport didn’t have the best of the seasons so far in the tournament. He holds the ability to smash the bowlers all around the park but till now he has failed to do so. Looking forward to his form, he will be a risky player to pick but will be worth for any Grand League Side.
Paarl Rocks are the favourites to win this one against Durban Heat.
