Paarl Rocks welcome winless Jozi Stars to Boland Park in the Mzansi Super League, as the hosts look to beat the defending champions and get back to winning ways. The match takes place on November 22 and gets underway at 17:30 local time.
The Rocks won their opening game, bowling Cape Town Blitz out for 84 – in between the Blitz’s two wins against Jozi Stars – but they failed to defend 185/6 as they suffered an eight-wicket defeat to Tshwane Spartans last time out. James Vince had scored 86* for the hosts.
Jozi Stars are without a win this season, however – losing four from four so far. Their last two losses have been particularly poor considering their excellent form last season – bowled out for 126 against Cape Town Blitz and 108 against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants.
Paarl Rocks are our favorites to win this game.
