JOZ vs PR Dream11 Prediction: A ripper of a contest awaits the cricketing fraternity as third-placed Paarl Rocks battle it out versus bottom-placed Jozi Stars in the 21st match of the season.
Led by Faf du Plessis, Paarl Rocks has had decent performances so far with four wins in seven matches, two losses and a rain abandoned contest. As of present, they are tied alongside Tshwane Spartans and Nelson Mandela Bay Giants with 19 points each. The difference has been the net run rate which stands +1.244 for Tshwane Spartans, +0.996 for Nelson Mandela Bay Giants, and +0.900 for Paarl Rocks.
On the other hand, Jozi Stars would have nearly lost the will to qualify for the playoffs. The Temba Bavuma-led side failed to muster a solitary win in the games competed so far and are thus lying at the bottom of the points table with six defeats in as many appearances. With Chris Gayle playing his last game of the season for the Stars in the previous outing, it is about time Shoaib Malik makes his way into the team for the forthcoming feud.
Date: December 1, Sunday.
Time: 1:30 PM IST, 10:00 AM LOCAL.
Venue: New Wanderers, Johannesburg.
