The last time these two sides met, sparks flew as the match turned into a final ball thriller with the Spartans sneaking through a one-run win much to the agony of Paarl Rocks supporters. The high-scoring edge of the seat humdinger was perhaps the only time the two sides played to their full potential in this tournament. Since then it's been a struggle for the two as they lurk mid-table with no clear direction when they face-off each other one more time.
With three wins in six matches, Paarl Rocks are slightly better than Tshwane Spartans in the table but a loss here would put them in the same boat as the de Villiers-led unit. The Spartans are off the back of a spanking in the hands of table-toppers, Cape Town Blitz, while Paarl Rocks beat last-placed Durban Heat in their last fixture. The true nature of the pitch and a lightning quick outfield should see another high-scoring game.
Conditions: Clear day and a true batting pitch expected.
Wicket-keeper: Gihahn Cloete (8 points)
The Tshwane Spartans wicket-keeper has been in good touch and opening the batting on a true Centurion wicket should multiply his chances of success. The southpaw clears the rope with ease, is a regular boundary hitter and one of the most consistent wicket-keepers in the tournament. This plus the fact that he opens the innings should make him an automatic choice in your fantasy side.
Batsman: AB de Villiers (11 points)
It would be silly
