Jozi Stars host Cape Town Blitz at the Wanderers in Saturday night’s Mzansi Super League match and the visitors are looking to extend their 100% record
Jozi Stars lost their opening match at home to NMB Giants by 5 wickets but they put themselves on the board next time out with a 60 run victory away to Paarl Rocks. Rickelton (91) and van der Dussen (78) laid the foundations in a total that clocked in at 209/2 and Paarl floundered in the chase.
Jozi will need to step up on their batting display in that opening defeat to NMB where they made just 124/7 batting first on this ground and they now come up against the tournament’s in form side.
Cape Town Blitz
Cape Town Blitz beat NMB Giants by 12 runs (DLS) at Newlands on Wednesday night to make it 3 wins from 3. At the time that sent them all of 8 points clear at the top of the log although that lead will have been reduced after Friday’s match up between the Giants and the Durban Heat.
Blitz had started the tournament with a 49 run home win over Tshwane Spartans but they have also proved themselves away from home, beating Durban Heat by 3 wickets at Kingsmead.
