DOL Team News

Of all the teams to qualify for the semi-finals, Dolphins are in the greatest form. They have won their last three games by eight wickets twice and seven wickets with the latter their final group stage game against Warriors. It will take a fine performance in this match to stop Dolphins progressing to the final.

DOL Team Bowling

Although they didn’t bowl out Warriors in the last game it was still a strong performance with the ball from Dolphins. The opening pair in particular, Eathan Bosch and Daryn Dupavillon, were in fine form and they will be looking forward to bowling at the same batters in this semi-final.

Dolphins ended the group stage with five victories in a row and they have won nine of their last 11 completed games.

WAR Team News

It was a very disappointing end to the group stage for Warriors who were only able to beat bottom of the table KZN-Inland from Match 27 onwards. This form saw them fall down from being outright leaders to finishing in third place. However the team must now get themselves up for this one off semi-final.

WAR Team Batting

Warriors found themselves in trouble early on against Dolphins in their final group stage match but Jordan Hermann was able to rescue them with 65 runs from 53 balls to take them from 18/3 to 130/8. Patrick Kruger impressed from number seven and could well move up the order in this match.

WAR Team Bowling

Only Patrick Kruger, Siya Simetu and JP King picked up a wicket each in Sunday’s match although Sean Whitehead did catch the eye with his relentless line and length which helped him finish with 0/14 from his four overs. If Whitehead can also pick up wickets in this game then Warriors could well be a threat with the ball.

WAR Team Form

After setting the pace at the top of the table for the first half of the group stage, Warriors have won only one of their last six matches.
