Tshwane Spartans Team News & Playing 11
Their batting depends on the likes of AB de Villiers, Eoin Morgan, Gihahn Cloete and Dean Elgar. Cloete is going great guns at the moment and he has scored the most runs for the Spartans in the tournament. The opener recently smashed 65 against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants and he even hit a fifty in the reverse encounter. Morgan and de Villiers can both win matches on their own and they will hold the key for the Spartans in the middle order. When it comes to bowling, the skipper will turn to Lutho Sipamla and Jeevan Mendis to deliver the goods. Both are amongst the tournament’s best bowlers and are expected to put up a strong performance in this match. Sipamla took a three-wicket haul last time against Durban Heat and the pacer could cause problems for them once again.

Durban Heat Team News & Playing 11
Morne van Wyk and Khaya Zondo have been the best batsmen for Durban Heat in this Mzansi Super League. They scored 56 and 67 respectively in the last game against Cape Town Blitz and the team will want them to carry their good form into this match. Hashim Amla has been brought back into the side and he along with David Miller, who too has not had a big hit, will be expected to fire in this final game of the league round. Durban Heat’s bowling will rely mainly on the likes of Kyle Abbott, Rashid Khan and Marchant de Lange. Abbott has been the pick of the lot with 10 wickets in 9 matches. The fast bowler bagged a four-fer in the reverse fixture and he will look to replicate that performance here. Rashid is the number one bowler in T20Is and he is the x-factor in this bowling attack.

Durban Heat vs Tshwane Spartans Prediction
Durban Heat will gain plenty of confidence from their win in the last match against finalists Cape Town Blitz. Plus, having beaten Tshwane Spartans in their first clash of the Mzansi Super League will also boost their morale going into this game. However, they will be playing away from home and the fact that they have lost three out of their four away games in the tournament could play on their mind. The Spartans, on the other hand, have the home advantage on their side and they have won two of their last three matches at this ground. The hosts have looked the better team in the tournament and we predict them to emerge victorious in this final league-stage encounter.
Final Verdict: Back Tshwane Spartans to beat Durban Heat.
