Nostragamus: MSL 2019 Match 3 – PR vs CTB Fantasy Preview

Match 1 sees last year’s toppers clash – Jozi Stars vs Cape Town Blitz. Match 2 is between last year’s worst performers, Durban Heat and Tshwane Spartans. Now, the action moves on to Match 3 of the 2019 Mzansi Super League and it’s the first weekend double header of the tournament as Paarl Rocks get in action for the first time in MSL 2019, playing against Cape Town Blitz who won the opening game this season.

The Paarl franchise was unlucky last year to have finished 3rd on the points table with 5 wins in 10 games and then lose the eliminator after a washed out game saw their opponent progressing due to a higher finish on the points table.

Numbers

  • Head to head in this tournament, these teams are tied 1-1.
  • Tabraiz Shamsi – 5/66 in an FC game for Titans last month.
  • Faf du Plessis – 318 runs in 8 innings in MSL 2018.

  • JP Duminy – out of MSL 2019 with a hamstring injury.

Paarl Rocks

Exciting pacer Thando Ntini has been given a chance in MSL 2019 but we’re not sure whether he will make his debut right away, son of legendary pacer Makhaya Ntini. The 19-year old recently played 2 FC games for Cape Town and picked up 2 wickets. However, Hardus Viljoen is a part of the squad and he can be picked considering he could be useful with the bat too, if needed. Clever chinaman bowler Tabraiz Shamsi is also a good option for your fantasy side.

With the bat, Faf du Plessis had a poor tour of India recently but he will be more comfortable at these familiar wickets and we can expect him to be among the runs. Last season, he had 4 fifties in just 8 innings for Paarl Rocks. Their overseas signings are Isuru Udana and James Vince, the latter being brilliant in recent times but he’ll be unavailable here, currently playing the T20 series against New Zealand.

Cape Town Blitz

Match 1 of MSL 2019 and Dale Steyn was the player who took them home with a magical spell of 3/25 and picking important wickets at regular intervals. That just goes to show how important experience is and another experienced player to add to your Nostragamus (sign-up with “READSCOOPS” for Rs.100 FREE) fantasy team would be Moeen Ali who scored 25(17) and picked a wicket in the last game. This will be his last game with CTB this season.

After a brilliant season in MSL 2018, Janneman Malan played some beautiful strokes on his way to 99(59)* in the opening game of the season. Pick him and another person who should be in your team is England’s Liam Livingstone. He’s a highly under-rated player who has experience around he globe and also is a T20 specialist. He smashed 21(10) in the opening game.
