Johannesburg, December 14 at 10:30 PM IST
As the inaugural season of Mzansi Super League 2018 is cruising fast towards its end, Jozi Stars and Paarl Rocks will be seen locking horns in the Eliminator at New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg to secure a spot in the final. The winning side will lock horns with Cape Town Blitz in Sunday’s final to clinch the title.
While table-topper Cape Town Blitz and second-placed Jozi Stars were already in the preliminary finals, Paarl Rocks knocked out Nelson Mandela Bay Giants by 6 wickets in their last group encounter to secure the third spot.
Batting first, Bay Giants posted 129 runs on the board with eight wickets loss. Only four batters of Bay Giants managed to cross 20 runs mark while Dwayne Bravo was the pick of bowlers for Rocks with three wickets in the bag. In response, Paarl Rocks chased down the target in 15.2 overs with 6 wickets in hand, courtesy Cameron Delport’s blistering 45-balls 84 runs knock.
Now as both Paarl Rocks and Jozi Stars reload for the eliminator clash let’s take a look at previous encounters of both the sides.
Both the sides have come head to head twice with each team turning out to be the winner once. Both teams met at Boland Park, Paarl for the first time and Jozi Stars turned out to be the winner by 60 runs.
The second time, both the sides met at Johannesburg and Paarl Rocks avenged their previous loss with 6 wickets win.
The pitch at New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg favours batsmen more. The wicket has produced a couple of 200+ scores in past and another high scoring affair is expected in the eliminator tomorrow.
