Lions Team News & Playing 11

LIONS Team News

Only Warriors are above Lions in the table ahead of Sunday’s fixtures and Lions come into this game after sneaking to a 1 run win over Titans on Friday to make it three wins from four so far in the group stage. Another victory could well see Lions take over at the top of the table.

LIONS Team Batting

Lions’ batters thought they had done their job when they posted 183/5 against Titans in their last match although it turned out a few extra runs would have made for a more comfortable victory. The top seven for Lions is one of the best in the tournament and that allows them to play in an attacking manner.

LIONS Team Bowling

Four of Lions’ bowlers picked up wickets in their tense win over Titans with skipper Bjorn Fortuin and Codi Yusuf both taking two dismissals each. However, for this game and on this pitch, we can expect Kagiso Rabada to be a real tough bowler to face.

LIONS Team Form

Lions are looking for their second win in a row and their fourth in five games in the tournament.

Lions Predicted Playing 11

Lhuan-dre Pretorius (wk), Joshua van Heerden, Rivaldo Moonsamy, Sibonelo Makhanya, Neil Brand, Dayyan Galiem, Corbin Bosch, Aaron Phangiso (c), Junior Dala, Lizaad Williams, Tabraiz Shamsi

Western Province Team News & Playing 11

WPR Team News

Along with Warriors at the top of the table, Western Province come into this fixture as one of only two teams with a 100% record so far in the CSA T20 Challenge. However, this looks like being their toughest test as yet in the tournament.

WPR Team Batting

Although they beat North West to make it three wins from three, Western Province lost too many wickets in their innings. They will be looking for more runs from the opening pair Tony de Zorzi and David Bedingham in this match who contributed only 26 runs between them in the last game.

WPR Team Bowling

Wayne Parnell has been expensive over recent games but is always a strike-bowler in T20 cricket whereas the likes of Kyle Simmonds and Beuran Hendricks can always be relied upon to keep it tight. On this pitch, George Linde’s unlikely to cause many problems.

WPR Team Form

Western Province have won three from three and are looking to maintain their 100% record.

Western Province Predicted Playing 11

Tony de Zorzi, David Bedingham, Jonathan Bird, Kyle Verreynne (c) (wk), George Linde, Wayne Parnell, Mihlali Mpongwana, Abdullah Bayoumy, Kyle Simmonds, Beuran Hendricks, Mthiwekhaya Nabe

🏆 Lions vs Western Province Prediction

This looks like being an excellent contest between two strong teams in Johannesburg on Sunday with the winner likely to be top or joint-top at the end of the day. Western Province are yet to taste defeat in this year’s tournament but we think this could be the game when they do. Lions have won three times yet still have plenty of room for improvement and we are backing them to get another victory in this match.
