CTB vs PR Dream11 Prediction: Cricketing fraternity is all set to witness a cracker of a duel as Cape Town Blitz lock horns with Paarl Rocks in the 15th match of MSL 2019 scheduled to take place on November 23 at Newlands.
Led by Quinton de Kock, Cape Town Blitz have had decent performances so far with three wins in five matches and are currently placed at the second spot in the points tally. The Blitz suffered a 5-wicket defeat in the lately concluded outing against the Bay Giants and would look to rectify their mistakes in the coming encounter.
On the other hand, Paarl Rocks would be coming into the contest on the back of a 4-wicket victory over the Jozi Stars and could be backed to forge ahead with similar momentum. The Fad du Plessis-captained side is presently placed at the third spot in the points tally with two wins in four matches along with a loss and a rain abandoned feud.
With both the teams looking solid on paper, it would be interesting to see as which side surfaces meritorious in the belter of a duel.

Cape Town Blitz
Quinton de Kock has been highly consistent in the games played so far and would be carrying the onus of scoring the bulk of runs for the Cape Town Blitz amidst the home conditions. Thus, it becomes viable for him to be appointed as the captain of the CTB vs PR Dream11 lineup. If not de Kock, then one can make a pick between Faf du Plessis or Janne Malan as the duo would be itching to put a ton of runs on board.
As for the vice-captain, one could consider Liam Livingstone the all-rounder’s top-notch exhibitions in the games competed this season. George Linde and Dale Steyn seem decent enough and shouldn’t be shied away from being picked for the vice-captain’s role.
