Dolphins Team News & Playing 11

DOL Team News

After going all the way to the final in the 2022/23 CSA T20 Challenge, hopes were high that Dolphins would go one better this year but so far it has not gone to plan for Keshav Maharaj’s side. Dolphins come into this game still looking for their first win of the tournament.

DOL Team Batting

With both openers dismissed for single-figure scores, Dolphins posted a disappointing 121/8 against Warriors in their last game. At the top of the order, Grant Roelofsen is a talented batter and he will be crucial to Dolphins’ hopes with the bat in this match.

DOL Team Bowling

It was a tough assignment for Warriors’ bowlers in their last fixture as they had to try and defend a target of 122 in Match 7. As well as skipper Maharaj, there are plenty of top level bowlers to look out for in this game in Ottniel Baartman and Andile Phehlukwayo.

DOL Team Form

Dolphins come into this fixture after losing by 2 runs and by 7 wickets with 35 balls remaining so far.

LIONS Team News

With a start-studied batting line-up, and not a bad group of bowlers as well, Lions have got off to an excellent start in the 2024 CSA T20 Challenge and, ahead of this clash with Dolphins, Bjorn Fortuin’s side are looking like being one of the sides to go all the way this year.

LIONS Team Batting

Reeza Hendricks was the star batter for Lions against North West in their last match with the opener hitting eight fours and two sixes in his unbeaten 57 not out from 30 balls. Rassie van der Dussen did not get a bat in the last game but had been in top form in the Pakistan Super League.

Leg-spinner Junaid Dawood comes into this fixture after taking 3/23 in his first appearance of this year’s competition and, if selected, he is likely to cause problems again. Bjorn Fortuin and Kwena Maphaka both took two-wicket hauls in the win over North West.

LIONS Team Form

Lions are flying along in the competition already with two wins from two so far.

🏆 Dolphins vs Lions Prediction

Dolphins have underperformed so far in this year’s tournament and we expect to see an improved display from them in this game. However, we do not think it will be enough to beat a very strong Lions side. We are backing Lions to win Match 10.
