Lions didn’t have a good start of the tournament. They lost their 1st match against Cape of Cobras in a close encounter by 5 runs.
Lions have some strong player down the line in their batting order. Reeza Hendricks who didn’t perform well in the first match will surely try to perform as per his reputation in World Cricket.
Ryan Rickleton was positive that Lions got in their first match. He played a brilliant inning of 69 runs against a brilliant bowling line up. Ryan will be expected to do the same against the Dolphins.
Lions captain Temba Bavvuma played a good cameo of 46 runs in just 35 balls to make team reach a respectable total on the scoreboard. Under the likes of Wiaan Mulder, Bjorn Fortuin they have some economical bowlers who can contribute well with the bowl for the team.
Dolphins got to a great start by winning their 1st clash against Knights very easily. Dolphin looks out to be a well-balanced team with some good bowlers and young batsmen in their top order.
They are short of some big names in their team but they look no short of talented players in their team. S Erwee and Morne Wan Wyk are the openers who are capable of giving a good start to the team during every match. M Ackermann is expected to come out a bit early for the team.
P Subrayen came out to be the best bowler for the team against Knights who took 3 important wickets as well as Keshav Maharaj turned out to be very economical for the team.
