Boland Team News & Playing 11

BOL Team News

Although Boland are still bottom of the table ahead of this match, they do come into the fixture off the back of getting their first victory of the tournament. That win was against fourth placed Dolphins so taking on third placed Lions will not fill the team with any fear.

BOL Team Batting

Chasing 159 for victory in Match 23, Boland got off to an awful start when opener Keegan Petersen was dismissed for a two-ball duck and skipper Clyde Fortuin was also out before the end of the first over. However, Boland do have runs down the order and that could well be crucial again in this game.

BOL Team Bowling

In spite of getting the win against Lions, it was another disappointing afternoon with the ball for Boland’s bowlers with only Glenton Stuurman, Imran Manack and Shaun von Berg picking up a wicket each. All three are likely to be the strike bowlers again for the side in this fixture.

BOL Team Form

Boland had lost five successive matches before their 4 wicket win over Dolphins in Match 23.

Lions Team News & Playing 11

LIONS Team News

A narrow 2-run defeat against top of the table Warriors in Match 26 showed that Lions do have the ability to take on the best teams in the tournament but it is now back to back defeats for Bjorn Fortuin’s team. Bottom of the table Boland are their next opponents.

LIONS Team Batting

Chasing 174 to beat the table toppers in their last game, Lions lost Reeza Hendricks to the first ball of the innings but then rebuilt thanks to the reliable Rassie van der Dussen. With Temba Bavuma and Wiaan Mulder also in this batting line-up, there is always someone capable of contributing towards a big score.

LIONS Team Bowling

One of the strong parts of Lions’ bowling attack is their variety and at Boland Park this could enable them to take wickets on a regular basis, not allowing the batters to settle or to line up a particular bowler. Wiaan Mulder will enjoy the movement on offer from the surface.

LIONS Team Form

Lions come into this fixture after losing successive games to KZN-Inland and Warriors.

Lions Predicted Playing 11

Reeza Hendricks, Ryan Rickleton (wk), Rassie van der Dussen, Temba Bavuma, Mitchell Van Buuren, Wiaan Mulder, Evan Jones, Bjorn Fortuin (c), Codi Yusuf, Lutho Sipamla, Tshepo Moreki

🏆 Boland vs Lions Prediction

Boland will come into this game with more self-belief than at any other stage of the season but we expect them to struggle against this Lions side. Although Lions have lost their last two, they very nearly became the first team to beat Warriors and they have international quality throughout their side. Our prediction is for Lions to win this match.
