LIO Team News

The table-topping Lions got back to winning ways with an 8 wicket victory over Titans in the semi-final after losing their final group stage match. They will be confident of victory over Dolphins although they have already lost once to them in this year’s tournament.

LIO Team Batting

Needing to hit 134 runs from 18 overs in the semi-final, Lions knew they would need one of their top batters to produce a big knock and it was Rassie van der Dussen who did so on Wednesday. He hit 73 not out from 45 balls and along with Temba Bavuma, Reeza Hendricks and Ryan Rickelton will be the key batters in this game.

LIO Team Bowling

Lions have a very strong bowling attack with young spinner Nqabayomzi Peter catching the eye and generating plenty of coverage across the globe with his performances. In this final, we can expect Codi Yusuf and Lutho Sipamla to take the new ball.

LIO Team Form

Lions have lost only one of their last eight matches and that was a very narrow 2 wicket defeat.

Dolphins Team News & Playing 11

DOL Team News

It was a comfortable semi-final victory for Dolphins on Thursday as they swept aside Warriors to win by 5 wickets with 12 balls remaining. Although they were beaten by Lions in their last head to head, they did beat them by 4 wickets earlier in this year’s competition.

DOL Team Batting

Dolphins got over the finish line with two overs to spare against Warriors and their opener Khaya Zondo set the pace at the top of the order with 49 runs from 23 balls. Warriors struggled to work out how to dismiss him, and he was eventually out run-out, so he will bring plenty of confidence into this final.

DOL Team Bowling

Andile Phehlukwayo was the only bowler for Dolphins to concede runs at an economy rate over 11 in the semi-final but he is an experienced performer and can be relied upon to perform in this match. Eathan Bosch comes into the game in fine form and will open the bowling.

DOL Team Form

Dolphins come into this final in Boland targeting their sixth successive victory of the competition.
