Knights are still searching for their 1st win of the tournament. In the first match, they lost it to Dolphins whereas 2nd match got abandoned due to rain.
Now in this crucial encounter for their survival in this league, they need to buck up as a team to win it against Lions. Aubrey Swanepoel and Grant Mokoena were the only positives of the team, who were the highest scorer of the team in the match against Dolphins.
In the middle order Rudy Second and A Gous will have to play some sensible cricket for Knights, otherwise, there are fewer chances that they might survive the match.
Shadley van Schalkwyk and Ryan McLaren have to lead the bowling attack from the front against the strong team of Lions, who can take the match away from them in few overs.
After losing their 1st encounter, Lions are back on track with a bang. In the last match against Lions defeated Dolphins by 18 runs, in which each every player contributed in one or the other way for the team.
T Bavauma, RV Dussain scored some important runs for the team, but their top order batsmen Reeza Hendricks remained unsuccessful in scoring runs for the team. He needs to score in consecutive matches if Lions eye for a trophy this year.
Bjorn Fortuin and Aaron Phangiso were the most successful bowlers of the team. They took a total of 4 wickets, which were the important bedrock in the constructive win of the team. These two bowlers again have to bowl some useful spells for Lion against Knights, if they eye for the spot of Semifinals of this trophy.

Rassie van der Dussen (VC)
Shadley van Schalkwyk
He will be handy with the ball and bat for the team. His ability to play some cameo knocks is not hidden from anyone. So he will be an intresting player to watch against Lions
Shadley van Schalkwyk
One of the best bowler in the domestic cricket of South Africa. He will be an important bowler from theperspective of Knights. His ability to take breakthrough’s in crucial moments is commendable. So let’s see whether he performs upto expectation or not.
This player has the experience of international cricket and this tournament is very important for him as the selections of the team are in a few days for the World Cup. He has the best opportunity to get his name listed in that team by some good performance in this league.
Rassie van der Dussen
The specialist batsmen of T20 will be a key figure for the team in the middle overs. It will be his performance over which the scorecard of the team will be dependent on, as he is a powerful hitter with the bat. Dussen needs to play sensibly if Lions have an eye on the semifinal spot of the league.
