Jozi Stars and Durban Heat are scheduled to play in the 27th match of the Mzansi Super League 2019 against each other later this afternoon. Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg is the venue of this match.
Jozi Stars hasn’t yet gotten any success in MSL 2019 due to near non-existent team performance. Durban Heat is the form team in the tournament due to their middle-order batsman playing superbly. In today’s match, Jozi Stars are looking for their first win in the MSL 2019, and Durban Heat want to continue their current winning form to stay in the race for the playoff spot.
Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg generally favors the team chasing targets. But today’s match is happening in day time, so teams might decide to bat first. Durban Heat has a big advantage in today’s match over Jozi Stars because of their current playing form
Jozi Stars are finally on the board in the Mzansi Super League 2019 points table in their 8th match. They got 2 points because their previous match at Supersport Park in Centurion against Tshwane Spartans was abandoned due to rain.
But still, the defending champions Jozi Stars haven’t won a single match in MSL 2019. They have played very poorly in this tournament, and their results are showing their standing in the points table.
Only a couple of players have played decently for the Jozi Stars in this tournament. Captain Temba Bavuma and Reeza Hendricks have batted well for the team. The bowling attack led by Kagiso Rabada hasn’t even performed to their stature for Jozi Stars. For that reason, they have failed to register a single win in MSL 2019.
Now it’s only about performing for pride and build-up for the next season of MSL for Jozi Stars. The team has a good chance to end their poor season of Mzansi Super League 2019 on a high note with a couple of wins against Durban Heat.
Players to watch out for Jozi Stars are Temba Bavuma, Rassie Van Der Dussen, Reeza Hendricks, and Kagiso Rabada.

Durban Heat is on a 3-match winning streak in the Mzansi Super League, 2019. Their middle-order batting has played brilliantly in these 3 matches to chase down tough targets.
In their previous match against Paarl Rocks, the bowling attack for Durban Heat was very ineffective except for Malusi Siboto. They conceded a lot of runs, and let the opposition set an above-par total.
But Alex Hales batted like a superstar batsman that he is, and played a match-defining innings to single-handedly chase down the target for Durban Heat. Also, David Miller partnered him well in a big partnership and performed intelligently to help the team achieve a massive win.
With form on their side, Durban Heat looks like a very hard team to play against. Although they have to continue this great form against Jozi Stars in today’s match. And also hope that teams in other matches don’t win for them to qualify for the playoffs of MSL 2019.
Players to watch out for Durban Heat are Alex Hales, David Miller, Wihaan Lubbe, and Keshav Maharaj.
