KwaZulu-Natal Inland Team News & Playing 11

KZNIN Team News

Michael Erlank’s side got an unexpected victory in their last game against Titans which they won comfortably by 6 wickets with 14 balls remaining. With KZN-Inland back at City Oval once again, they have a tough job of making it two in a row as they take on the top of the table side.

KZNIN Team Batting

Chasing 166 to win against Titans, the standout performer for KZN-Inland was opener Cameron Delport who struck 83 runs from 49 balls including six sixes. Alongside him, we can expect Keith Dudgeon to also be a key batter for the team in this game.

KZNIN Team Bowling

Dudgeon and Malcolm Nofal were the only two bowlers for KZN-Inland to go wicketless in their last match but both will retain their places for this clash. Off-spinner Kurtlyn Mannikam impressed in the last game at City Oval and it will be interesting to see how he gets on against the table toppers.

KZNIN Team Form

KZN-Inland ended a run of four matches without a win when they got their second victory of the campaign in their last game.

Warriors Team News & Playing 11

WAR Team News

With eight wins from nine games, Warriors still have a five point lead in first place in the competition ahead of this match. However, they come into this clash after being beaten for the first time and they have had a full week to think about that defeat against Titans.

WAR Team Batting

Warriors needed 169 to keep their 100% record in tact in Gqeberha but in spite of getting 20 extras, they were unable to get even within 13 runs. Three of the top four made scores between 25 and 33 with that being a key goal for this game for one or two batters to make bigger contributions after getting in.

WAR Team Bowling

Beyers Swanepoel looked likely to be on the winning side against Titans when he took 5/39 in the first innings and there were also impressive and economic figures from Siya Simetu and Alfred Mothoa. KZN-Inland have generally struggled with the bat so the Warriors bowling attack will be looking forward to this contest.

WAR Team Form

Warriors won all of their first eight matches in the tournament before suffering their first defeat against Titans in Match 34.

Warriors Predicted Playing 11

Jiveshan Pillay, Matthew Breetzke (c), Andile Mokgakane, Jordan Hermann, Sinethemba Qeshile (wk), Patrick Kruger, Beyers Swanepoel, JP King, Nealan van Heerden, Siya Simetu, Alfred Mothoa

🏆 KwaZulu-Natal Inland vs Warriors Prediction

With KZN-Inland winning their last game and Warriors being beaten for the first time in their last fixture, there will be a slightly different feel ahead of this top versus bottom match. That said, Warriors have been the strongest side since the start of the competition and we expect their strong bowling attack to be too good for KZN-Inland. Our prediction is for Warriors to win.
