WPR Team News

After four wins, three losses and one tie, Western Province come into this match on 21 points and in third place in the group stage of the 2024 CSA T20 Challenge. They are level on points from the same number of games as second placed Lions who they take on in this game.

WPR Team Batting

Western Province will be looking to their top five batters to go on and make bigger contributions in this match after they were all dismissed for scores of between 15 and 30 against Warriors. However, they will be in for a tough evening against a strong Lions bowling attack.

WPR Team Bowling

Defending a target of 144, Western Province’s bowlers proved to be incapable of making any real inroads on the Warriors batting line-up in their last game. Only Kyle Simmonds picked up a wicket and he along with George Linde and Wayne Parnell are likely to be the biggest threats with the ball in this clash.

LIONS Team News

After going three successive matches without winning a game without the aid of a Super Over, Lions returned to winning ways against bottom of the table Boland in Match 28. However, this game will be a good test of their top two credentials.

LIONS Team Batting

Lions’ last match was a confidence boosting exercise against Boland who they defeated by 9 wickets with 16 balls remaining. For the batters, Ryan Rickleton was the only one to be dismissed with Reeza Hendricks (53 not out) and Evan Jones (43 not out) coming into this game in strong form.

LIONS Team Bowling

It was not just the batters who impressed against Boland. The bowling attack saw four members pick up wickets with Bjorn Fortuin the pick. Playing on this pitch in Newlands, which will assist the bowlers, we expect the likes of Fortuin, Wiaan Mulder and Nqaboyomzi Peter to dominate once more.

LIONS Team Form

Lions come into Match 31 on Wednesday looking to make it back to back wins for the first time since Match 8.

Lions Predicted Playing 11

Ryan Rickleton (wk), Reeza Hendricks, Evan Jones, Rassie van der Dussen, Temba Bavuma, Mitchell van Buuren, Wiaan Mulder, Bjorn Fortuin (c), Codi Yusuf, Lutho Sipamla, Nqabayomzi Peter

🏆 Western Province vs Lions Prediction

Although this game sees two of the top three going head to head, the truth is they have not been in strong form and both sides have recently lost to top of the table Warriors. Lions did enjoy a big win in their last game though so we expect them to arrive with confidence and we are backing them to get the victory in this fixture.
