Our Prediction

Durban Heat are favorites to win

Who will win Jozi Stars vs Durban Heat, MSL 2019?

The 27th match of the Mzansi Super League 2019 will see Durban Heat clash with a winless Jozi Stars. The New Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg will be the venue for this game scheduled to be played on December 7. Live action begins at 12:30 PM local time.

Jozi Stars are already out of contention for a play-offs spot and they will end up at the bottom of the leaderboard even if they win both their remaining fixtures by bonus points. With nothing to lose, they will be playing some fearless cricket and will look to spoil the plans of their opponents. The Dane Vilas-led Durban Heat are coming off three consecutive wins and have breathed life into their campaign. Unlike the Stars, they have everything to play for and a win on Saturday will keep their hopes alive for a top three finish.

JS vs DH Toss Prediction

The frequent rain stoppages will make it tough for the side batting first to set up a total. So the team that wins the toss in this match will probably elect to bowl first.

JS vs DH Weather Report

The weather for this match does not look good at all with heavy showers expected all day long. It will be a pretty cold day with temperature likely to be around 17-18 degrees Celsius.

JS vs DH Pitch Condition

The Wanderers has produced some big totals this season - 170+ has been scored here on four occasions in as many matches. For this game, however, one can expect a damp pitch due to rain and so batting will not be as easy as it has been thus far.

JS vs DH Prediction

Jozi Stars Team News & Playing 11

JS Team News

Ryan Rickelton has replaced Chris Gayle who has taken a break from cricket after playing his last game of the season against Tshwane Spartans. Rickelton will continue to partner Reeza Hendricks at the opening slot with Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen batting at numbers three and four respectively. Kagiso Rabada will spearhead the bowling for Jozi Stars and Lizaad Williams will be his new-ball partner in the powerplay.

JS Key Players

Reeza Hendricks: He is among the top five batsmen in the tournament with 275 runs at an average of 39.28. The opener has blasted three half-centuries this season and is coming on the back of an impressive 74 against Paarl Rocks.

Temba Bavuma: The skipper too has been pretty consistent with the bat, scoring 232 runs in 6 innings at an average of 38.66. Bavuma hit a fine fifty versus Cape Town Blitz last month and will be expected to play a similar knock here.

Kagiso Rabada: He has had a pretty good tournament so far and has taken eight wickets in seven matches at an economy of 8.33. The fast bowler picked three wickets last time out and could cause problems for Durban Heat in this match.

JS Recent Form

Jozi Stars are left with just two more matches and they are yet to register a win this season. The champions of the previous edition have not played like champions this year and they continue to find themselves at the bottom of the pool with seven losses and a washout from eight matches. After losing their first seven fixtures on the bounce, the Stars finally got to open their account on the points table last time in the rained-out clash against Tshwane Spartans.

Durban Heat Team News & Playing 11

DH Team News

Durban Heat dropped all-rounder Marco Jansen in the last match against Paarl Rocks and brought in Daryn Dupavillon as a like-for-like replacement. Wesley Marshall and Alex Hales will continue to open the batting while Dane Vilas and Ravi Bopara will form the team's middle order. The Heat do not have any injury issues to deal with heading into this game and we expect them to retain the entire line-up from last time.

DH Key Players

Alex Hales: After a string of underwhelming performances, Alex Hales seems to have returned to form. The opening batsman has scored 138 runs in his last two innings and is now averaging 40. His unbeaten 55-ball 97 played a vital role in the Heat's six-wicket victory over Paarl Rocks last time.

David Miller: The stylish left-handed batsman has scored runs consistently for Durban Heat this season and is having an impressive average of 61.33. Miller cracked a quickfire fifty recently against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants and played second fiddle to Alex Hales in the last match against Paarl Rocks with a 22-ball 40.

Malusi Siboto: The medium pacer has picked at least one wicket in every game in this year's Mzansi Super League and he now has seven wickets in six matches. Siboto returned his best figures of the season (2-41) against the Giants last month at Port Elizabeth.

DH Recent Form

Durban Heat are currently positioned fourth on the MSL 2019 points table with two losses, three wins and as many washouts from eight matches. Three of their first four fixtures including the opening two had to be abandoned due to rain before they suffered a five-wicket defeat at the hands of Nelson Mandela Bay Giants. The Heat, however, have reignited their campaign by securing wins in their last three matches straight. Their most recent encounter came against Paarl Rocks at the Boland Park where they sealed a convincing six-wicket win.

Jozi Stars vs Durban Heat Betting Odds

Durban Heat are favorites to win this match at 1.58 with 10CRIC and 1.57 with Betway and Bet365. Jozi Stars continue to find themselves as the underdogs amongst the bookmakers and they are being offered at odds of 2.30 on 10CRIC and 2.37 on Betway and Bet365.

Jozi Stars vs Durban Heat Prediction

Jozi Stars have had a terrible run this season and are short on confidence. Though they do have plenty of quality players in their ranks, they have not been able to gel together as a team and have failed to grab opportunities in crunch situations. Durban Heat, on the flipside, have found form at the right time and are coming on the back of three successive wins. And with Alex Hales getting into the groove, their batting is looking stronger than ever. Bowling still remains a major concern for them, but if they don't have a really bad day with the ball, they should be able to hand Jozi Stars another defeat.

Final Verdict

Durban Heat to beat Jozi Stars at 1.58 with 10CRIC and 1.57 with Betway and Bet365.

JS vs DH Dream11 Prediction

Our Dream11 team for this match is a balanced one with five players from Jozi Stars and six from Durban Heat.


Durban Heat's Dane Vilas bats at a higher position in the batting order and is a more accomplished batsman as compared to Jozi Stars' Sinethemba Qeshile which is why we have picked him in our Dream11 team. Vilas is available for 9 credits.


Our team consists of four batsmen, two from both the teams. Alex Hales has finally teed off and is coming off impressive performances in his previous two outings. The England opener is available for 10 credits and should be picked. We have also included David Miller for 9.5 credits along with Reeza Hendricks and Temba Bavuma for 9 and 8.5 respectively.


Daniel Christian and Ravi Bopara have both been priced at 9 credits and we have added them as all-rounders to our Dream11 team. Both are capable of picking wickets with the ball and making decent contributions with the bat down the order.


Kagiso Rabada has been the most impressive bowler from both the teams. He took three wickets in the last game and will be a serious threat in this match. The paceman is available for 9.5 credits. Apart from Rabada, we have also picked Duanne Olivier (8.5), Keshav Maharaj (8.5) and Malusi Siboto (8).


We have picked Alex Hales as the captain of our Dream11 team.


We have picked Kagiso Rabada as the vice-captain of our Dream11 team.
