PR vs TST : After more than a month of the cricketing extravaganza, Mzansi Super League 2019 has reached to its finale where Paarl Rocks will meet Tshwane Spartans to get their hands on the championship. Paarl Rocks finished at the top of the table with 6 wins and 3 losses in 10 games to book their berth directly in the final. They also earned the rights to host the final. Tshwane Spartans, on the other hand, finished 3rd in the points table with 3 wins and 2 losses.
Their 5 games got washed out due to rain. Tshwane Spartans had to play the eliminator where they defeated Nelson Mandela Bay Giants by 22 runs to earn the bragging rights to compete in the final. The Spartans defeated the Rocks twice when these two sides met earlier in the league stage and they would be eager to repeat their performance once again.
