Paarl Rocks vs Jozi Stars Betting Tips - Jozi Stars tipped for their first win in the Mzansi Super League

Value in run scoring markets as Boland Park promises run-fest

Paarl Rocks face the Jozi Stars at Boland Park as the 2019 Mzansi Super League heats up. Temba Bavuma and Reeza Hendricks are the tournament top run scorers and offer value in the run scoring markets.

Paarl Rocks Form

England international James Vince led the Rocks' charge in their last outing at Boland Park. Batting first, Vince carried the Rocks to 185 with a blistering innings of 85 runs. He is tipped to be the Rocks best batsman at 4.33.

Unfortunately the Paarl Rocks bowlers couldn’t match the batsmen efforts as the Tshwane Spartans won the match by eight wickets in the final over of the match.

With one win, one loss and one no result the Rocks haven’t had a terrible start but there has been great inconsistency, especially among the bowlers. The Boland Park pitch does seem to have a lot of runs on offer so the over/under runs in the match market could be a popular pick.

The bookmakers see this as a 50/50 game and have thus listed the Rocks at 1.91 to win.

Wicket Keeper-batsman Kyle Verreynne is likely to come in for Mangaliso Mosehle while Bjorn Fortuin will hope to get a shot ahead of Dwaine Pretorius. JP Duminy is out for the entire tournament. 

South African international Tabraiz Shamsi will once again be key to the Rocks cause but they do lack real international quality in their set-up.

Jozi Stars Form

Jozi Stars have made a terrible start to the Mzansi Super League by losing their opening four matches. In their last match they were bowled out for an embarrassing 108 runs at the Wanderers with Temba Bavuma top scoring with 27 runs. The Nelson Mandela Bay Giants cruised home by nine wickets inside 10 overs.

After four losses on the trot it is no doubt risky to back the Jozi Stars at 2.00 to win but I feel they could pull this one off. They have a truly world class line-up with Chris Gayle, Kagiso Rabada and Duane Olivier well known on the international circuit.

On top of that opening batsman Reeza Hendricks is at the top of the run scoring charts in this year’s competition and I'm backing him to score 50+ runs at 3.50.

Chris Gayle is set to retain his place despite regular failures with the bat this season while Reeza Hendricks and Temba Bavuma are sure starters after their impressive early showings. Gerald Coetzee is out with an injury which could see Eathan Bosch make an appearance.

Paarl Rocks vs Jozi Stars Head to Head

Both teams won one match each last season away from home. Jozi Stars won the fixture at Boland Park but lost the last match at the Wanderers.

Rassie van der Dussen scored a magnificent 83 runs as the Stars posted 170. It was chased down by the Rocks who won the match with three balls to spare.

Paarl Rocks vs Jozi Stars Betting Odds

The bookmakers have made this contest dead even with a win either way paying 1.91. The run scoring markets are not available as yet. At 1.90 either team can be backed to have the highest opening parternship.

Faf du Plessis and Reeza Hendricks are valued at 9.00 to be the highest six hitters but they are closely followed by James Vince at 10.00 and Chris Gayle at 11.00.

Paarl Rocks vs Jozi Stars Match Up

This should be a tight match-up with the sides pretty evenly matched. The Jozi Stars have a slight upper hand on the batting front form wise but their international bowlers have under-performed this season. 

The Rocks on the other hand have been inconsistent in the early stages of the 2019 season. Their bowling department is a real concern and against the in-form Stars batsmen it could be a long day at the office.

Post bet analysis

Jozi Stars continued to fail despite having a very strong side and faced another defeat. Reeza Hendricks looked well on his way to a score of 50+ but fell for 40. Fortunately the loss was minimised with James Vince ending as the Rocks best batsman.
