Lions Team News & Playing 11

LIO Team News

With only one defeat in the tournament so far, Lions are in second place in the table and will come into this game with renewed belief after defeating Western Province in a Super Over in their last match. Confidence will be high and it would be a huge surprise if Lions were unable to beat KZN Inland.

LIO Team Batting

Requiring 52 from 7 overs to beat Western Province, Lions reached 51/3 before going on to win the Super Over. Although they have a good bowling line-up, it is their list of top level batters who will be key with Rassie van der Dussen at the top of the order alongside Ryan Rickelton and Reeza Hendricks at number four.

LIO Team Bowling

All six of Lions’ bowlers picked up a wicket in the 20 overs sent down against Western Province so there is unlikely to be anyone in the attack coming into this game without a high level of confidence. Bjorn Fortuin and Kwena Maphaka will share new ball duties.

LIO Team Form

Lions have won four out of five so far in this CSA T20 Challenge and are playing at an impressive level.

KwaZulu-Natal Inland Team News & Playing 11

KZNIN Team News

Although they have played only three games in the CSA T20 Challenge so far this season and have games in hand on other sides, KZN Inland have lost all of their matches and look completely out of their depth. This will be another tough fixture.

KZNIN Team Batting

With only two batters making double-figure scores in their last innings, it is obvious that KZN Inland have real problems in their batting line-up. Cameron Dean Shekleton and Keith Dudgeon were also the only players to hit a six in the last match and both players are likely to be key in this game.

KZNIN Team Bowling

Four of KZN Inland’s bowlers returned economy rates of between 12 and 17 in their last game against North West with only Smangaliso Nhlebela, Keith Dudgeon and Mondil Khumalo keeping their rates below double figures. Against an excellent batting line-up, the bowling unit must produce better in this game.

KZNIN Team Form

Not only have KZN Inland not picked up any wins in the competition but they come into this game after losing by 125 runs against North West.

KwaZulu-Natal Inland Predicted Playing 11

Kagiso Rapulana, Cameron Delport, Yaseen Valli, Cameron Dean Shekleton, Michael Erlank (c), Ntando Zuma (wk), Keith Dudgeon, Rube Trumpelmann, Alindile Mhletywa, Smangaliso Nhlebela, Mondil Khumalo

🏆 Lions vs KwaZulu-Natal Inland Prediction

These two teams have vastly different resources and the difference in quality of players is also very wide. Lions have been impressing with bat and ball throughout the tournament and are likely to maintain their levels in this game. KZN Inland have been beaten in every match so far and we are predicting another defeat for them in this fixture.
