Paarl Rocks won both matches against Durban Heat last season, and quite comfortably on both occasions too.
A lightning-fast start to a rain-reduced match at Durban saw the Rocks post 98/2 from nine overs, and the Heat got nowhere near a revised target of 113 – Bjorn Fortuin taking 2-6 as they finished 80/6.
In the second meeting, Durban batted first and posted 154/6 but Faf du Plessis’ unbeaten 76 from 48 balls helped the Rocks to a nine-wicket win.
Durban Heat are our favorites to win this game.
