All eyes on the clouds
In the 7-matches of MSL 2019, Paarl Rocks take on Durban Heat on Friday at Kingsmead. This will be the second match of the season for both sides and also at the venue. The Rocks have started the season on an impressive fashion by defeating the Blitz by 86 runs. On the other end, Durban’s first game of the season was washed out. On Friday, it can be perceived as their first game of the season if the rain doesn’t play spoilsport once again.
James Vince who is available for selection for this match is likely to replace Sibonelo Makhanya for the Paarl Rocks.
Durban Heat possible XI:
Alex Hales, Sarel Erwee, Dane Vilas (C), David Miller, Ravi Bopara, Khaya Zondo, Andile Phehlukwayo, Keshav Maharaj, Malusi Siboto, Prenelan Subrayen, Kyle Abbott.
The surface at Kingsmead has been sporting enough in recent times by providing enough assistance for everyone. So expect nothing different from it for Friday’s contest. The forecast is for rain during the first half of the match, so it could be shortened game.

The lanky pacer is coming into the season on the back of good T20 Blast where he was among the top wicket-takers for the side. His PPM of 45 and MDTA of 1.67 in the last 5 matches makes him a worthy pick to consider in the Dream11 cricket team.
