MSL Finals Preview: Cape Town Blitz vs. Jozi Stars

With a free pass to the finals after a washout against Paarl Rocks, Jozi Stars take on the team of the tournament, Cape Town Blitz, in the finals of the inaugural Mzansi Super League in Cape Town on Sunday. The top two teams of the league phase, Jozi Stars and Cape Town Blitz were believed to be the best two teams in the competition and it is only apt that the two face-off in the finals which is set to be the culmination of a tremendous past few weeks in South Africa.

Cape Town Blitz lost their last game at the venue, that to the last-placed Durban Heat which really shoots up Jozi Stars' chances for they have been in great form heading down to the finals. The Newlands surface is a belter and could help the batsmen as much as it does the faster bowlers and the action-packed grand finale is bound to be more exciting at one of the best venues in the country.

Conditions: A belter of a pitch with something in it for the quicker men

Player Recommendations:


Wicket-keeper: Quinton de Kock (10.5 points)

Quinton de Kock has found his mojo in the tournament and when he does that the danger of a breath-taking knock looms and Jozi Stars would hope and pray that doesn't happen in the finals. The diminutive wicket-keeper batsman is a ferocious striker of the ball and is the second-highest run-scorer in the tournament with 407 runs at 67.83.

Batsman: Reeza Hendricks
