We are more than halfway through in the Mzansi Super League 2019 and with three teams tied in terms of points at the top of the table, things are looking tigher than ever. Jozi Stars, however, are yet to register a win and they are all but knocked out of contention for the playoffs. They are set to lock horns with Paarl Rocks in their upcoming encounter, which is to be played at the Wanderers, Johannesburg on 1st December. Despite a loss to Tshwane Spartans in their last match, Paarl Rocks are in a pretty good position and will be looking to strengthen their chances with a win in this upcoming contest.
Jozi Stars have had a strange sort of tournament so far. While their overall performance has been dismal, to say the least, they haven't been as bad as the points table suggest in most of their matches. They have played six matches in the tournament and have no points to their name with an incredibly poor net run-rate of -2.132.
Quite strangely, Jozi Stars have two of their batsmen in the top-three top scoring batsmen of the season. Reeza Hendricks and Temba Bavuma have scored 201 and 195 runs in the tournament and have been the best batsmen for the Stars in this season. However, none other than the those two have contributed enough for the Stars and that has been one of the primary reasons for their dismal state in the tournament.
Despite the form Hendricks and Bavuma have been in, Stars' batting just has struggled to score. In their previous match as well, their bowlers did well to restrict power-packed Tshwane Spartans to just 155. Their batsmen, however, struggled to even stay in the middle let alone score runs. Chris Gayle, who scored 54 off 27 deliveries, was the pick of their batsmen.
All in all, Jozi Stars have a pretty good unit, at least on paper. They have the likes of Duanne Ovivier, Kagiso Rabada, and Aaron Phangiso in the bowling lineup coupled with some big power-hitters in the batting lineup. Their batting, however, has struggled for form in the tournament so far and with Stars already knocked out of the race for the playoffs, it's hard to see them improving from here.

Contrary to how the Stars have done, Paarl Rocks have done pretty well in the tournament. They are currently sitting at the third spot with only net run-rate separating them and Tshwane Spartans, who are at the top of the table. Paarl Rocks have 19 points to their name with four wins in seven matches and will be looking to get to the top of the table with yet another win in this upcoming contest.
Paarl Rocks didn't get off to the kind of start they wanted to, but with three wins in their last four matches, they seem to be picking up pace at just the right time. In their most recent encounter, they suffered a defeat at the hands of Tshwane Spartans. Batting first, the Rocks got off to a flying start with Henry Davids and Cameron Delport adding 36 runs for the first wicket in under three overs, but failed to sustain the momentum. They kept losing wickets at regular intervals and were eventually shot out for just 126 in 19.4 overs.
Isuru Udana and BC Fortuin started off well for them as they got rid of Dean Elgar and Theunis de Bruyn pretty quickly. However, AB de Villiers and Heinrich Klaasen proved too hard to handle for the other bowlers. The Spartans eventually won the match with no further damage and five overs to spare. Tabraiz Shamsi, who has been terrific in the tournament so far, failed to spin his magic and gave away 27 runs in his three overs. Fortuin was the pick of the bowlers as he returned with impressive figures of 1 for 21 in his four overs.

Comparing on the basis of performance in the tournament so far, it would be safe to say that the two teams are on the extreme end of the spectrum. While Paarl Rocks have won four matches out of seven, the Stars have failed to win any of the six. Jozi Stars are a pretty good team on paper with experience available in both the departments, but are down on confidence with six back to back losses. Rocks, on the other hand, would be looking to get back to winning ways after a one-off defeat in their last four matches and will be looking to return to the winning ways. The Rocks are the more confident of the two sides, have the momentum, and are therefore, our pick to emerge on top in the upcoming contest.
