Wednesday is the final day of the Mzansi Super League round robin stage, two matches will take place and the first sees Paarl Rocks host NMB Giants at Boland Park.
Paarl Rocks are still alive in the race to squeeze into the play offs but they would definitely need to win this one. They must also hope that Tshwane Spartans fail to taken enough points from their final 2 matches which are away to Jozi Stars a day before this game takes place and at home to Durban Heat in the match which follows this one.
The Rocks put themselves back in some sort of contention with a 6 wicket win away to Jozi Stars on Sunday. Their record now comprises of 4 wins and 5 defeats and whilst they have lacked consistency, on their day they are a very dangerous unit.
These teams met in Match 15 in Port Elizabeth and Paarl Rocks were beaten by 48 runs.NMB posted 168/9 batting first and despite 50 from Markram only 2 other Paarl batsmen made it to double figures.
At the end of November the Ginats looked sure to make the play offs and perhaps even threaten top spot but they have suffered 2 defeats alongside 1 no result in their last 3 matches and defeat here could prove to be disastrous. They have won 4 matches, losing 3 and no result was possible in the other 2 and they missed an opportunity to tie up a play off spot last time out when they went down to the Spartans by 28 runs in a home fixture.
