KZNIN Team News

Ahead of this clash on Friday morning, KwaZulu-Natal Inland are bottom of the table in eighth place after defeats against Warriors in Match 1 and Western Province in Match 6. They are yet to be competitive in the tournament but this could be an opportunity to get going.

KZNIN Team Batting

KwaZulu-Natal Inland’s top order was blown away by Western Province’s fine bowling attack in their last game and that will be a key area that they must improve on in this match. Alinile Mhletywa and Keith Dudgeon are the only players who come into this match after hitting a six in the last fixture.

Keith Dudgeon, the 28 year old right-arm fast medium bowler, was the pick of KwaZulu-Natal Inland’s bowling attack against Western Province who had the tough task of defending a target of 116. Alongside Dudgeon, Mbulelo Budaza will also be a key bowler in this clash.

NWEST Team News

Just like their opponents in this match, North West are yet to experience victory in the 2024 CSA T20 Challenge and have been beaten three times already! However, it was a close contest, lost by only 4 runs, in their last game against Western Province.

NWEST Team Batting

If North West are to get their first victory of the campaign in this match, we expect top order batter Rubin Hermann to be key after he hit 90 runs from 54 balls against Western Province. Alongside Hermann, Raynard van Tonder also arrives in strong form.

NWEST Team Bowling

Although North West have struggled in terms of wins and defeats, their bowling attack is a useful one and they picked up seven wicket on a good batting wicket in the last match. Ruan de Swardt will be a tough bowler to face in this game.

North West are looking for their third win in a row after victories over Dolphins and KZN-Inland.
