At the SuperSport Park, the side batting first has a higher success rate than the side bowling first in the game’s shortest format. And also since Nelson Mandela Bay Giants batted first and went on to beat Tshwane Spartans in the previous game at this ground, the team that wins the toss here on Wednesday will probably elect to bat first.

Tshwane Spartans Team News & Playing 11
TS Team News
Tshwane Spartans have added fast bowler Corbin Bosch to their squad as a replacement for Lungi Ngidi who has been ruled out of the tournament due to a knee injury he had picked up during the T20I against Australia. The team dropped Sikandar Raza, Rory Kleinveldt and Andrew Birch for their last game against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants while bringing in Dean Elgar, Eldred Hawken and Corbin Bosch. There have been no further injuries in the side and we expect the Spartans to go into this match unchanged.
TS Key Players
Tshwane Spartans rely mainly on AB de Villiers, Gihahn Cloete and Theunis de Bruyn to score runs for them at the top. Cloete is among the tournament’s leading run-getter with 145 runs which includes two half-centuries and it will be crucial from the team’s perspective that he makes a heavy contribution here. de Villiers has scored just 11 runs in the last two matches and he will be expected to bounce back strongly. With the ball, the Spartans will turn to their most dependable bowlers Jeevan Mendis and Lutho Sipamla. Mendis is currently atop the wickets charts with nine wickets. The leg-spinner claimed a four-fer last time against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants at an impressive economy of 5.50 and he is going to be the trump card for his side. Sipamla too snared three scalps in that game and he is the team’s best bet with the new ball.
TS Recent Form
Tshwane Spartans currently find themselves languishing at the bottom of the MSL 2018 league standings with three losses and just one win from four matches. After facing a big 49-run defeat in the tournament opener against Cape Town Blitz, they bounced back with a narrow one-run victory over Paarl Rocks. However, the Spartans failed to capitalize on the momentum as they lost their next two matches against Durban Heat and Nelson Mandela Bay Giants respectively.
Tshwane Spartans Predicted Playing 11
- Gihahn Cloete (wk), Tony de Zorzi, Theunis de Bruyn, AB de Villiers (c), Dean Elgar, Robbie Frylinck, Sean Williams, Jeevan Mendis, Lutho Sipamla, Eldred Hawken, Corbin Bosch
Jozi Stars Team News & Playing 11
JS Team News
Jozi Stars made a couple of tactical changes in their side for the previous encounter against Cape Town Blitz – they left out seamer Nono Pongolo and allrounder Wihan Lubbe to make room for South Africa internationals Reeza Hendricks and Kagiso Rabada. Both of them are likely to be retained and we don’t expect the Stars to tweak their line-up for this upcoming match versus Tshwane Spartans.
JS Key Players
Ryan Rickelton and Rassie van der Dussen have been the best batsmen for Jozi Stars so far in this Mzansi Super League. They smashed a 59-ball 91 and a 49-ball 78 respectively versus Paarl Rocks at the Boland Park and the team will want the duo to fire for them once again. Dane Vilas is due for a big knock and he along with Daniel Christian are the key figures in the middle order. The pace trio of Kagiso Rabada, Duanne Olivier and Beuran Hendricks form the big threats in this attack. Olivier has been the pick of the bowlers with six wickets in three games. He is coming off a three-wicket haul against Cape Town Blitz and the Stars will back him for another top-notch showing with the ball. Rabada will be playing his second game of the tournament and he will be threatening with the new ball.
JS Recent Form
Jozi Stars have won one and lost two out of the three league matches they have played so far and are positioned third in the standings with five points. They started off their MSL 2018 campaign with a five-wicket loss to Nelson Mandela Bay Giants before inflicting a heavy 60-run defeat on Paarl Rocks in their next encounter. They were then blown away by Cape Town Blitz in their last match. Chasing the Blitz’s 198, the Stars got bowled out for 136 in the 18th over to go down by 62 runs.
Jozi Stars Predicted Playing 11
- Ryan Rickelton, Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Dane Vilas (c/wk), Petrus van Biljon, Daniel Christian, Simon Harmer, Kagiso Rabada, Duanne Olivier, Beuran Hendricks, Eddie Leie

Tshwane Spartans vs Jozi Stars Prediction
Tshwane Spartans and Jozi Stars are both coming on the back of a defeat in their last match. While the former lost to Nelson Mandela Bay Giants at home in a rain-hit encounter, the latter suffered a hammering at the hands of Cape Town Blitz at their home ground in Johannesburg. Of course, there will be more pressure on the Spartans who are right down at the bottom of the pool. They need to ensure a win in this match, or else, it will become very difficult for them to finish in the top three at the end of the league stage. Nevertheless, the home advantage paired with the AB de Villiers factor tips the scales in favor of the Spartans.
Final Verdict: Back Tshwane Spartans to beat Jozi Stars at 1.85 on Betfair and 1.80 on both Betway and Bet365.
