Once again the middle order pairing of captain Michael Erlank and Keith Dudgeon were crucial for KwaZulu-Natal Inland but the team could only post 108 all out on Friday. Opener Cameron Delport comes into this match after ending a run of single figure scores with 30 against Dolphins.

KZNIN Team Bowling

The bowling attack has taken just three wickets across their last two games and it was Keith Dudgeon and Smangaliso Nhlebela who picked up the two dismissals in the last match. Ahead of this game, the opinion of most cricket experts is that KwaZulu-Natal Inland’s bowling unit lacks sufficient depth.

There was a surprise defeat for top of the table Lions who were beaten by fourth place Titans in a last-ball thriller on Friday evening. Dolphins in third are now only three points behind Lions who will be keen to get back to winning ways ahead of the semi-finals.

Only Reeza Hendricks went past 25 for Lions against Titans but even he only contributed 48 in what turned out to be a sub-par 154/8 on Friday. However, against a poor KwaZulu-Natal Inland bowling attack, Lions batters will see this as an opportunity to find form before the knockouts.
