Lions who are leading at the points table will square off against Dolphins in the 21st fixture of CSA T20 Challenge on Monday. This match is supposed to be played at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom.
Lions would be proud of their performance in this season with three wins in 6 matches, whereas Dolphins lost their previous game to Titans and with just one win out of 6 games they are sitting at the second last position on the points table.
Reeza Hendricks and Rassie van der Dussen have performed well for Lions. Rassie van der Dussen scored crucial 85 runs off 47 balls. Coming to the bowler, Bjorn Fortuin has impressed his captain with his bowling skills, and spinner Nono Pongolo has made some valuable contribution to his team.
On the other hand, Dolphins have had a disappointing season so far. They lost their previous match to Titans by eight wickets. Morne Van Wyk (50) and Cody Chetty (56) were the only batsmen who made some impact with their bats. The major problem is with their bowling department. Keshav Maharaj, Andile Phehlukwayo, Robbie Frylinck were too expensive against Titans.

The wicket has got good grass cover and has assisted fast bowlers in the past. It won’t be easy to bat on this surface due to the amount of moisture. The score of 160 runs would be good. Rain is expected to make its presence.
