JOZ vs TST Dream11 Prediction, MSL 2019, Match 16: Preview, Probable XI, Form Guide, Pitch Report & Fantasy Cricket Tips

JOZ vs TST Dream11 Prediction: The 16th match of MSL 2019 would feature Jozi Stars battling it out against Tshwane Spartans in what could be dubbed as a belter of a contest for the fans to witness.

Tshwane Spartans haven’t been able to prove to their potential, credits to bad-weather for acting as a spoilsport in three occasions. As a result, the Heinrich Klaasen side is placed at the fourth spot in the points tally with merely a sole win and three no results and ten points to their name. With the conditions at Wandererers now deemed fit for a contest, one could finally get to witness a mind-boggling exhibition from their end in the forthcoming feud.

On the other hand, Jozi Stars have lost five matches in succession and are nearly on the verge of being evicted from the tournament. It is about time they rectify their mistakes and forge ahead with a winning strategy.

JOZ vs TST Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Tips

Jozi Stars

  • Reeza Hendricks has been one of the few positives for Jozi Stars amidst their disappointing run in MSL 2019. In 5 innings played so far, the opener has amassed 201 runs while playing at an average and strike rate of 40.20 and 121.81 respectively.
  • Tenda Bavuma has been second in command in terms of most runs amassed this season. In 5 matches, the Stars skipper has accumulated 160 runs at a decent average and strike rate of 40.00 and 142.85 respectively.
  • In the bowling department, Kagiso Rabada has had some successes to his name with five wickets in as many contests with the best figures in an innings being 2/24. With the overcast conditions suiting the need of pacers, Rabada could be expected to render a ripping show versus Heinrich Klaasen & Co.

Tshwane Spartans

  • Dean Elgar has rendered sparkling exhibitions in the limited opportunities Spartans have recieved so far. The left-handed batsman has amassed 145 runs in 3 innings with average and strike rate being 145.00 and 147.95 respectively. With the form he is in at the moment, one could expect a majestic inning from his end in the game against Jozi Stars.
  • AB de Villiers has to have his name engraved in the JOZ vs TST Dream11 team.  Hailed by many as Mr 360, de Villiers’ onslaughts could be of great assistance to the Spartans in the highly coveted encounter. Talking about his MSL 2018 performance, he was among the leading run-getters with 282 runs in 10 innings at a jaw-dropping strike rate of 162.06. Thus, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the former Protea skipper goes full-throttle in the coming duel.

Captain & Vice-Captain Picks

Reeza Hendricks would be the firstmost choice as a captain for Fantasy XI. While he has been performing quite decently in the ongoing edition of MSL, not many would remember that he was among the top three run-getters in the previous edition as well, with 412 runs in 10 innings while maintaining an average and striker rate of 58.85 and 142.56 respectively.

If not Hendricks, then one could consider AB de Villiers or Heinrich Klaasen as the duo possess immense T20 experience underneath. Especially the former, who has played close to 300 T20 contests to date.
