JOZ vs DUR Dream11 Prediction: With three consecutive wins and a fourth on the trot, Durban Heat would be high on morale as they take on the Jozi Stars in the 27th match of MSL 2019 amidst the conditions of Wanderers.
Durban Heat are positioned at the fourth spot in MSL rankings with 3 wins in 8 matches and 18 points under their belt. The Dane Vilas-captained lineup would have to win their remaining couple of matches if they are hoping to grab a seat in the playoffs. The trio of David Miller, Wihaan Lubbe, and skipper Dane Vilas would hold pivotal positions for their side in the must-win encounter versus Tenda Bavuma’s men.
Unfortunately for the Jozi Stars, nothing has gone in their favor since the start of MSL 2019 as they’ve struggled in grappling even a solitary triumph to their name. Their recent outing versus Tshwane Spartans was abandoned due to rain, and although there will be cloud cover throughout, one could expect a complete 40-overs of uninterrupted contest.
The likes of Reeza Hendricks and Tenda Bavuma have been carrying the burden for their side in the games competed so far and are likely to continue with their roles in the coming feud.
