Cape Town - Proteas all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius has rejoined the Paarl Rocks ahead of the Mzansi Super League final against the Tshwane Spartans at Boland Park on Monday.

In a timely boost for the Paarl side, Pretorius joined the squad on Thursday and has been training with the team.

Paarl Rocks coach Adrian Birrell said Pretorius will undergo a fitness test on Sunday and if all goes well, he will be available for selection.

"Dwaine showed earlier in the tournament the value he adds with both the bat and ball. His recovery went well and I'm optimistic he will be available for Monday's big game," he said.

Pretorius was injured with a minimally displaced fracture to the right hand playing for the Rocks against Cape Town Blitz on November 24.

The Paarl Rocks are the only team in the MSL to progress to the playoffs/finals in 2018 and 2019.

"The achievement of Faf du Plessis and the coaching staff to create a high performing squad should not be underestimated," says Paarl Rocks CEO James Fortuin.

"Our team has performed exceptionally well over the last couple of years and it is our aim to sustain and build on this great platform in the years ahead,” he said.

Fortuin also congratulated the Spartans on making the final.

"Monday night will be memorable for us in the Boland region and the game against the Spartans will be a fitting finale to some great cricket played in the MSL 2019 tournament," he said.

Monday's final is scheduled for 17:30, with gates to open at 15:30.
