After a month full of exciting clashes, the Africa T20 league is finally moving towards the conclusion with the final game of the season scheduled to be held on December 16 between Paarl Rocks and Tshwane Spartans. The live-action will begin at 9:00 PM IST.
Both the Spartans and Rocks had a wonderful season as they managed to bag a place for themselves in top 3. Spartans started their journey for the season with 2 consecutive abandoned matches, all credits to rain. On the other hand, Paarl Rocks kick-started with a victory, ending at the top spot in the points table with 6 wins and 1 no result from 10 matches. Tshwane Spartans got lucky as they have only 3 wins from 10 matches but 5 no results.
The game will be played at the Boland Park in Paarl. Teams batting second have found it really comfortable to chase even big targets. The dew factor is expected to play a crucial role in the latter inning of the game, and thus, the team winning the toss shall opt to field first.
There are no chances of rain interrupting the game. Thus, a full game is on the cards. However, the day will be quite hot with the temperature between 31-34 degrees Celsius.
