Nostragamus: MSL 2019 Match 5 – TST vs NMG Fantasy Preview

Tshwane Spartans didn’t have a great season in MSL 2018 and they would’ve wanted to begin on a winning note in MSL 2019. However, their opening game was washed out due to bad weather conditions and they will be eager to get on the field in Match 5 today and opening their account this season.

They will be up against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants who opened their season with a comfortable 24-run victory over the defending champions, Jozi Stars. Due to the big win, they’re sitting pretty on the second spot of the MSL 2019 points table.

Tshwane Spartans

The surface is a good one for pacers, carrying well to the wicket-keeper. This means the likes of Lungi Ngidi and Morne Morkel have to certainly be in your fantasy teams. Ngidi is an exciting young talent while Morkel has been South Africa’s leading pacers over the years. Tom Curran will be flying in from New Zealand to join the squad. If he’s in the playing eleven, I’ll pick him over Morkel.

Klaasen, de Villiers, Elgar, de Bruyn are going to be the biggest stars when it comes to the bat. While you must include ABD, choose well between the rest as they will all be expensive players. Theunis de Bruyn had a poor season against India and many won’t be picking him which makes him a good selection. Heinrich Klaasen can be picked as well, as he’s leading the team.

Nelson Mandela Bay Giants

While there are a few international stars in the NMG camp, JJ Smuts will be one of the first players in my Nostragamus (sign-up with “READSCOOPS” for Rs.100 FREE) fantasy team as he contributes with both bat and ball. Batting in the middle order, he scored only 9 but picked a wicket in the last game. Similarly, Chris Morris is a good all-round option, scoring 20 and getting a wicket in the last game.

Matthew Breetzke scored 23(15) in the last game and also had a good recent FC season. The 21-year old has been among the runs in recent months for SA Emerging Team as well, and is a good choice for your fantasy team. Farhaan Behardien is another very experienced player who will bat low down the order while Imran Tahir should be your first choice with the ball, picking 1/24 in the last game.
