Probable Playing XI
Jozi Stars will welcome Shoaib Malik into the side as he replaces Chris Gayle in the roster. He will slot in the middle order with Ryan Rickelton most likely to open the batting alongside Quinton de Kock. Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen feature in the middle order with the likes of Daniel Christian and Sinethemba Qeshile providing the impetus in the latter overs. Kagiso Rabada leads a formidable bowling attack which is yet to fire so far. Watch out for Duanne Olivier, who has been good with the ball this season.
Reeza Hendricks, Ryan Rickelton, Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen, Shoaib Malik, Daniel Christian, Sinethemba Qeshile, Kagiso Rabada, Duanne Olivier, Lizaad Williams and Aaron Phangiso
Paarl Rocks shouldn’t be making any changes to their side in spite of a loss in the previous game. Faf du Plessis and James Vince are key in the top order with the experience of Henry Davids also coming in handy. Although they seem a bit depleted in the batting unit, they have a long tail that can account for handy runs. Their spin twins, Tabriaz Shamsi and Bjorn Fortuin are key along with Hardus Viljoen.
