Star performers like AB de Villiers, Morne Morkel, Lungi Ngidi, Shoaib Malik and Kasigo Rabada will be in action as Tshwane Spartans take on the Jozi Stars in the 25th match of the Mzansi Super League 2019 at the SuperSport Park, Centurion, later tonight (India time).
The Tshwane Spartans despite winning only three of their eight games this season are in the top half of the six-team table. The team could have assured themselves a better postion had their three games not washed out. They have also lost two matches. The team coming off the defeat in their last game against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants won’t be much worried as their rivals today (Thursday) have yet to taste a win from their seven outings. Presence of the likes of seasoned Shoaib Malik and lethal Kasigo Rabada has not been able to lift the morale and performance of the team.
Tshwane Spartans, on the other hand, need just two more wins to finish in the top half, or maybe one game with a bonus point. Complacency can be their only challenge to deal with.
Tshwane Spartans: Heinrich Klaasen (capt, wk), Tony de Zorzi, Wiaan Mulder, AB de Villiers, Petrus van Biljon, Tom Curran, Roelof van der Merwe, Corbin Bosch, Morne Morkel, Lungi Ngidi, Waqar Salamkheil, Vaughn van Jaarsveld, Dean Elgar, Theunis de Bruyn, Lutho Sipamla, and Donavon Ferreira.
Jozi Stars: Temba Bavuma (captain), Sinethemba Qeshile(wicketkeeper), Ryan Rickelton, Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Shoaib Malik, Daniel Christian, Aaron Phangiso, Kagiso Rabada, Duanne Olivier, Lizaad Williams, Simon Harmer, Dane Paterson, Nono Pongolo, Eathan Bosch, Gerald Coetzee, Jacques Snyman, and Delano Potgieter.
The match at the SuperSport Park in Centurion will start from 9:00 pm India time. Fans can catch the action LIVE and Exclusive on SONY SIX & SONY SIX HD. The feed will also be streamed LIVE on SonyLIV.
