Mzansi Super League Betting Predictions, Tips and Strategies

Mzansi Super League Predictions

With 12 wins in 21 matches, Paarl Rocks are the most consistent team in Mzansi Super League history. Paarl Rocks boast of phenomenal players in Faf de Plessis, Henry Davids, Cameron Delport, James Vince, Tamraiz Shamsi, Bjorn Fortuin, David Wiese, Thando Ntini and JP Duminy.

Paarl Rocks have a balanced squad and are favourite to win the 2020 Mzansi Super League. Jozi Stars have the best squad in the league, yet did not win a single match in the 2019 MSL. Jozi Stars‘ squad consists of players like Kagiso Rabada, Chris Gayle, Shoaib Malik, Rassie van der Dussen, Reeza Hendricks, Dan Christian, Duanne Olivier and Nono Pongolo.

If these players perform at their best in the 2020 MSL, Jozi Stars will be difficult to beat. Cape Town Blitz is another team to look out for. While Cape Town Blitz have not had the best of times in the MSL, they have an excellent squad at their disposal.

Players like Dale Steyn, Janneman Malan, Quinton de Kock, Asif Ali, Sisanda Magala, Vernon Philander, Moeen Ali, Wahab Riaz and Anrich Nortje must perform at their absolute best if Cape Town Blitz are to mount a serious title challenge.

Mzansi Super League General Betting Tips and Strategies

Before you place a bet on the Mzansi Super League, you should go through detailed league statistics, including betting tips and predictions, past match results, head-to-head statistics, player form guides, team form guides and injury news. Study the nature of the home ground pitches of each of the 8 competing teams and punt accordingly.

You must remember that a team playing at home has an advantage. A home team can create a pitch to play to their strengths, to negate an opponent‘s strengths, or to expose an opponent’s weaknesses. 

You should place a To Win Outright bet and a Match Handicap bet on Paarl Rocks. While Jozi Stars did not have a good time in 2019 MSL, they should perform better in the 2020 edition of the league.

You should place a To Win the Match bet on Paarl Rocks, Jozi Stars and Cape Town Blitz. You should place a Player of the Match bet and a Player Performance bet on Reeza Hendricks, Quinton de Kock, AB de Villiers, Janneman Malan, Faf du Plessis, Kagiso Rabada, Imran Tahir, Duanne Olivier and Dale Steyn.

If you want to place a Top Team Batsman bet or a Highest Individual Score bet, look no further than Reeza Hendricks, Quinton de Kock, Janneman Malan, AB de Villiers and Faf du Plessis.

If you want to place a Top Team Bowler bet, look no further than Duanne Olivier, Dale Steyn, Tabraiz Shamsi, Imran Tahir and Kagiso Rabada. If you want to place a Most Match Sixes bet, punt on Jozi Stars.

You should place a Player to Score Most Sixes bet on Reeza Hendricks, AB de Villiers, Rassie van der Dussen, Chris Gayle, Faf du Plessis, Quinton de Kock and Janneman Malan. You could place a Highest Opening Partnership bet on Jozi Stars and Cape Town Blitz.

Avoid placing bets on markets like To Win the Toss, Race to 10 Runs, Most Run Outs and To go to Super Over, as they rely more on luck than skill.

You should live stream a Mzansi Super League match when you want to place an in-play bet. Live streaming a MSL match will help you better understand how two competing teams are performing and you can punt accordingly.

You can watch MSL matches on the SonyLIV website and app in India. That said, practise a responsible brand of Mzansi Super League betting at all times.

Mzansi Super League – Players to Look Out For

Here are a few players who could have an impact in the 2020 MSL:

Kagiso Rabada

Kagiso Rabada is the leader of South Africa’s pace bowling attack. At just 25 years of age, with nearly 350 international wickets under his belt, Rabada is on his way to becoming one of the best bowlers of all-time.

Rabada has picked up 21 wickets for Jozi Stars in just 17 matches. He is more than handy with the bat in hand as well and is one of Jozi Stars’ most important players. Jozi Stars did not win a single game in the 2019 MSL and will hope that Rabada can spearhead the team in the 2020 edition of the league.

AB de Villiers

AB de Villiers is one of the best batsmen in the history of the game. He has every shot in the book and can torment any bowling line-up on his day. With 607 runs to his name, AB de Villiers is the 4th highest run-scorer in the history of the Mzansi Super League.

Tshwane Spartans narrowly missed out on claiming their first MSL title in the 2019 MSL and will hope that de Villiers can inspire the team to a victory this time around.

Reeza Hendricks

The leading run-scorer in the history of the league, Reeza Hendricks is a classy batsman with an eye for the boundary. Hendricks has scored 687 runs in 17 MSL matches, at a staggering average of 49.07.

It is safe to say that Hendricks is Jozi Stars’ most important player. While Hendricks had a good 2019 MSL individually, he could not inspire his team to a single victory. Hendricks must score a mountain of runs in the 2020 MSL if Jozi Stars are to win a record-breaking 2nd MSL title.

Janneman Malan

Janneman Malan is an up-and-upcoming star with the bat in hand. Malan has played just 5 international matches at the moment and has his whole career ahead of him. Malan is the second-highest run scorer in the history of the MSL, with 663 runs.

Cape Town Blitz heavily rely on Janneman Malan’s batting prowess. Quinton de Kock and Malan must score heavily in the 2020 MSL if Cape Town Blitz are to harbour any hopes of securing a first-ever title.

Dale Steyn

Dale Steyn is one of the best fast bowlers of all-time. Steyn retired from Test cricket in August, 2019, after picking up 439 Test scalps. Steyn is the joint leading wicket-taker in the history of the MSL, with 27 wickets.

At 37 years of age, Steyn is one of the most experienced bowlers in the MSL and could contribute greatly to the success of Cape Town Blitz in the 2020 MSL.

 

History of the Mzansi Super League

The Mzansi Super League was founded by the CSA in 2018. The first edition of the MSL took place from the 16th of November, 2018, to the 16th of December, 2018. The first 2 editions of the league featured 6 teams. From the 2020 edition of the MSL onwards, 8 teams will compete in the league.

Global Sports Commerce (GSC) is the official international broadcast and commercial partner of the MSL. Paarl Rocks and Jozi Stars are the most successful franchises in MSL history with 1 title each.
