Still eyeing their first win of the season, the Knights will now lock horns against the Highveld Lions who are currently enjoying their run at the second position on the points table. Knights have so far lost 3 games from 5 played and were involved in 2 no-result games as well.
Highveld Lions, on the other hand, has been brilliant so far after winning 3 games out of 5. Their wins came against Dolphins by 18 runs, against Knights by 40 runs and against Titans by 19 runs in their previous match. Lions just don’t need to change anything and play the way they have been playing so far to get more results in their favor.
Meanwhile, for Knights things are slipping from their hands as they are still unable to register their first win of the competition. They are left with 5 more games and from here each and every match becomes a must-win for them. Can they pull off a miracle and find themselves among the top four?
