TST vs JOZ Dream11 Team Prediction: After a tough loss against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants, Tshwane Spartans looks to bounce back into winning ways as they face Jozi Stars at the SuperSport Park. Not long ago, Tshwane Spartans were the only unbeaten side in the league. But with two losses on the trot, the Spartans now find themselves fighting in the middle of the points table. Jozi Stars are the only team that is out of the contention for a knockout spot and are yet to register a win in MSL 2019. Although they don’t have much to play for, Jozi Stars would look to end a dismal season on a high with the likes of Temba Bavuma and Reeza Hendricks impressing for them this season.

Tshwane Spartans vs Jozi Stars, Match 25
December 5th, 9:00 PM IST
SuperSport Park, Centurion
Another high scoring encounter awaits at the SuperSport Park with 160-170 being a par score. Although Paarl Rocks wasn’t able to cope with the turn on offer in the previous game, the batsmen should be able to play their strokes freely. The powerplay overs will be crucial for either side in this game.
Persistent rains threaten the render the game as a washout. The weather forecast isn’t great for the whole week with there being no respite at all. If a match does start, bowlers should get additional help from the overlying conditions.
No injuries are reported from either side
Probable Playing XI
Tshwane Spartans will ideally bring in an extra batsman with Waqar Salamkheil disappointing in his first outing for the Spartans. Dean Elgar could return after missing out against NMG which would push Mulder or AB de Villiers into the middle order. Their bowling unit hasn’t fired in the previous games with much expected from the duo of Tom Curran and Lungi Ngidi.
Tony de Zorzi, Dean Elgar, AB de Villiers, Heinrich Klaasen, Wiaan Mulder, Pite van Biljon, Roelof van der Merwe, Corbin Bosch, Tom Curran, Morne Morkel and Lungi Ngidi
Jozi Stars will also ponder a few changes with Lizaad Williams and Ryan Rickelton not put in a good performance. While Dane Paterson could return for this game, Ryan Rickelton should get another game at the top of the order along with Reeza Hendricks. Although they did score some runs in the previous game, Shoaib Malik and Rassie van der Dussen are expected to come good in this game with Jozi Stars unable to register a single win so far in the competition. Apart from Kagiso Rabada, none of the Stars bowlers have troubled the batsmen, which is a cause for concern as well.

Top Picks for TST vs JOZ Dream11 Team:
In spite of Jozi Stars’ dismal season, Reeza Hendricks has been one of the standout batsmen in MSL 2019. With 275 runs in seven innings, Hendricks is their best bet with the bat as he is picked in the side for this game. Along with the South African international, AB de Villiers is also a must have player in the side with 247 runs so far. Along with them, the likes of Tony de Zorzi and Daniel Christian should also be backed to put in a good performance while Roelof van der Merwe should also pick a wicket or two in this game. Tom Curran hasn’t picked a wicket in two games and would be itching to make amends while the duo of Kagiso Rabada and Morne Morkel should also suffice in the fantasy team.
