LIONS Team News

As the team in the tournament with the strongest record over the last three games, second placed Lions will come into this clash with sixth placed North West fancying their chances of picking up another victory and closing the gap on Warriors at the top of the table.

LIONS Team Batting

In a rain-reduced game on Friday, Lions successfully chased down their target of 99 from nine overs with seven wickets and four balls remaining. Keeper-batter Ryan Rickelton set the tone at the top of the order with 53 runs from 23 balls and we can expect him to bat in the same fashion in this game. 

LIONS Team Bowling

With the bowlers permitted to only two overs each against Dolphins, there was no opportunity to take an over or two to find the best length. Codi Yusuf was the standout performer and Nqaba Peter also impressed with his economy rate. The whole attack will be hoping for 20 overs to show off their skills in this game.

LIONS Team Form

After wins over Boland, Western Province and Dolphins, Lions are targeting their fourth win in a row in this game.

NWEST Team News

With only two wins from ten games, it has been a disappointing campaign for North West so far although they have been unfortunate with three of their matches also ending as no-results. However, they come into this game after beating Western Province by 11 runs on Friday.

NWEST Team Batting

North West posted 155 all out from their 20 overs against Western Province thanks to scores between 14 and 39 from their top six. Wihan Lubbe was the most fluent of that top six but North West will be looking to the whole batting unit to contribute in a similar fashion again in this match.

Bamanye Xenxe and Wihan Lubbe were both very expensive in Friday’s game and it is key that they are both more economical in their bowling in this match if North West are to make it two wins in a row. The rest of the bowling attack all performed to a very high standard in the last game.

NWEST Team Form

North West picked up only their second victory of the season and their first after four winless fixtures on Friday.

🏆 Lions vs North West Prediction

North West will arrive in Johannesburg with plenty of self-belief after their victory against Western Province but we expect Lions to be a much tougher opponent. Lions have had no problem beating their last three opponents and we are backing them to win again in this clash.
