The Heat have enjoyed a resurgence in the second half of the competition after they lost two of their opening five games and rain claimed the other three. Thereafter the Heat have put in three clinical run chases with their third one being a tournament record chase in Paarl on Wednesday.
Left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj has been a crucial part of the bowling attack for the Heat this season and with a strong batting line-up the team are bullish ahead of today’s clash, but are wary of the Stars line-up.
“The team are definitely on a high after the three wins in a row,” Maharaj said. “But we cannot take anything for granted and as the old cliché goes you must beware the wounded animal.
"Even though the Stars have not won a game in this season’s version of the MSL, they have a strong line-up and we know that because they won the competition last year. We are just going to take it game by game and try and ride off the confidence that we have built over the last three games.”
