The Paarl Rocks host the Tshwane Spartans in the 2019 Mzansi Super League final at Boland Park. The Spartans' AB de Villiers and the Rocks' Cameron Delport are the form batsman and should be backed, while I’m backing the visitors to come away with victory at even money.

Paarl Rocks Form


After topping the 2019 Mzansi Super League table, the Rocks will be looking to claim the title on their home patch. They won their last match against the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants at Boland Park by 12 runs.

Cameron Delport has been the Rocks' form batsman recently and scored 39 runs against the Giants to help the Rocks post 168 runs. Tabraiz Shamsi took 2-25 as the Rocks kept the Giants to 156 in their 20 overs.

The Rocks are favourites at 1.80 to lift the trophy, I am backing Cameron Delport to score over 22.5 runs

Paarl Rocks News


The Paarl Rocks have been consistent with team selections and that shouldn’t change for the final. They rely heavily on Tabraiz Shamsi in the bowling department while they’ll hope James Vince can find the form he had in the first half of the tournament.

Tshwane Spartans Form


The Spartans reached the final thanks to a 22-run victory over the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants in the 2019 Mzansi Super League eliminator at St Georges Park. Batting first the Spartans scored 168 runs as Pite van Biljon top scored with 48 runs. David Wiese (31) and AB de Villiers (27) were the other contributors.

David Wiese took 3-30 as the Spartans restricted the Giants to 144 runs to make the final. After a slow start to the season, the Spartans found some form in a late run for the playoffs. This was mainly down to AB de Villiers who has scored three 50+ scores in his last five matches.

Spartans are slight underdogs at 2.00 for the victory while AB de Villiers has value at 1.83 to score over 31.5 runs.

Dean Elgar has been in poor form after a strong start to the season which may see Wiaan Mulder open the batting in the final. Further than that the Spartans should remain unchanged barring a late injury.
