The second game of the day will be the 26th match of the competition which will be played between Warriors and Dolphins at the St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth. Rain is likely to play the spoiler in this game as seen before in the tournament as well.
Dolphins who are placed at the fifth position are left with two games including this match. Warriors and Cape Cobras are the two teams against whom they will be going head-to-head to finalize their spot among the top four. So far, they have managed only one win which came in their opening match of the season against Knights by 4 wickets. If they manage to win their remaining two encounters they can definitely get through the knockouts stage.
Meanwhile, there is nothing to worry for Warriors as they are perfectly poised at the second position and are assured of a semi-final berth. Having won 3 out of the 8 played with only a solitary loss to their name, they definitely hold the upper hand in this contest. The previous encounter between these two sides was abandoned due to rain, and with a lot at stake especially for Dolphins who are in a quest for a semi-final spot, this is definitely going to be one big game.
