Toss Prediction

The pitch at the Kingsmead is expected to be a good one for batting and it should remain unchanged after the first period of play. Moreover, since the side chasing here has a better win record than the side batting first, the toss-winning captain is more likely to bowl first.

DH Team News

Durban Heat have no injury issues to deal with ahead of this clash against Paarl Rocks. They have fielded the same playing eleven in their last two matches and we expect them to be unchanged for this match as well.

DH Key Players

Their top-order failed to deliver with the bat last time against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants and the team will be hoping that their heavyweights Hashim Amla, Morne van Wyk and David Miller can come up with strong performances this time around. van Wyk is the leading run-getter in T20Is at the Kingsmead and even has a century here. Miller has a strike of close to 145 at this ground while Amla will be desperate for a big knock. Kyle Abbott, Keshav Maharaj and Vernon Philander seem to be the Heat’s best bets with the ball. Abbott has been their most successful bowler so far with five wickets in three matches and he will be the key man for his side in the middle and death overs. Left-arm spinner Maharaj has been their next best bowler with four wickets while Philander will be the main threat with the new ball in the powerplay.

DH Recent Form

Durban Heat currently find themselves on the fourth spot in the MSL 2018 standings after winning one and losing two out of their first three league encounters. They began their campaign with a three-wicket loss to Cape Town Blitz at home, then came back strongly in the competition to beat Tshwane Spartans by 10 runs (DLS method) in a rain-marred contest before suffering a nine-wicket thrashing at the hands of Nelson Mandela Bay Giants in their last match at Port Elizabeth.

Durban Heat Predicted Playing 11

  • Morne van Wyk (wk), Hashim Amla, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Khaya Zondo, Albie Morkel (c), Vernon Philander, Keshav Maharaj, Kyle Abbott, Marchant de Lange, Tladi Bokako

Paarl Rocks Team News & Playing 11

PR Team News

Paarl Rocks now have all of their Proteas available with them. Aiden Markram, Faf du Plessis and Tabraiz Shamsi replaced Patrick Kruger, Grant Thomson and Eathan Bosch in the previous game against Cape Town Blitz. The Rocks registered a convincing victory in that game and so they are unlikely to fiddle with their winning combination.

PR Key Players

Faf du Plessis played a match-winning knock in his very first game of the MSL 2018. The skipper smashed 54 off 39 balls to guide the Rocks to victory in the last game versus Cape Town Blitz. While he is definitely the key man in this batting group, the team will also expect the likes of Aiden Markram and Henry Davids to step up. Davids cracked a half-century against Jozi Stars and he will look to put up a similar performance here. In terms of bowling, the Rocks will turn to their go-to options in Dane Paterson, David Wiese and Bjorn Fortuin. Wiese is the leading wicket-taker in T20Is at this ground – nine wickets in three matches – and he will have a big role to play after the power play. Fortuin and Paterson shared seven wickets between them last time. The latter has taken the most wickets for the team and is more likely to trouble the Heat on this pace-friendly pitch.

Paarl Rocks, with one win and a couple of defeats from three matches, have four points in the bag and are placed fifth in the MSL 2018 league standings. They did not start off too well, going down in their first two encounters at home; a one-run loss against Tshwane Spartans was followed by a massive 60-run drubbing versus the Jozi Stars. The Rocks, under the leadership of Faf du Plessis, then registered their first win of the tournament by breaking Cape Town Blitz’s winning streak with a five-wicket win.

Durban Heat vs Paarl Rocks Betting Odds

Durban Heat are favorites amongst the bookmakers to win this 14th match of the Mzansi Super League 2018. The home team are currently being offered at odds of 1.72 on Betway, 1.80 on Bet365 and 1.82 on Betfair. Paarl Rocks begin as the underdogs for this game at a higher price of 2.06 on Betfair and 2 on both Betway and Bet365.

Durban Heat vs Paarl Rocks Prediction

Paarl Rocks have received a massive boost with the inclusion of South African international stars Faf du Plessis, Aiden Markram and Tabraiz Shamsi. And the effect of the trio’s presence was clearly seen in the last game when they got the better of the in-form Cape Town Blitz at the Boland Park. So after having faced defeats in their first two matches, the Rocks would have regained some confidence after securing a win against the league leaders.

Durban Heat, on the other hand, are coming off a defeat against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants. However, they do have the home advantage in their favor and having beaten Tshwane Spartans here will make them feel a lot better heading into this game. The hosts have plenty of quality players in their ranks and except Tladi Bokako, all the others have international experience under their belts.

So even though the Rocks may have become stronger than before with the addition of the three Proteas, we still feel the Heat stand a better chance of winning this match.

Final Verdict: Back Durban Heat to beat Paarl Rocks at 1.72 on Betway, 1.80 on Bet365 and 1.82 on Betfair.
