Next up is an encounter between Lions and Dolphins which will be played at the Senwes Park in Potchefstroom.


Lions and Dolphins have had contrasting fortunes in the season till now. While Lions are sitting pretty at the top of the points table with three wins and one loss, Dolphins are at the second last place. Three matches of the Lions have been washed out and they are with 17 points, while Dolphins are with one win and three losses. Two of their matches have been washed out and they are with eight points.

Dolphins are coming off an eight-wicket loss against Titans. On the other hand, the last match of the Lions which was scheduled to be played against Knights, could not be completed and was abandoned without a ball being bowled.


Lions have a power packed batting order which has the potential to score 200 on a consistent basis, with Reeza Hendricks, Ryan Rickelton, Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen and all-rounder Wiaan Mulder taking the first five batting spots.

While Reeza Hendricks missed out to be a part of the 15-member World Cup squad of South Africa, Rassie van der Dussen has made the cut. They also have a lot of big names in their bowling department such as Dwaine Pretorius, Nono Pongolo, Bjorn Fortuin and Aaron Phangiso.

Morne van Wyk, Cody Chetty and Khaya Zondo will be the crucial batters for Dolphins while Robbie Frylinck, Keshav Maharaj and Prenelan Subrayen will lead the charge with the ball. All-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo will provide balance to the side.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

 

Lions- Reeza Hendricks, Ryan Rickelton, Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen, Wiaan Mulder, Dwaine Pretorius, Nono Pongolo, Bjorn Fortuin, Migael Pretorius, Aaron Phangiso, Malusi Siboto

Dolphins- Sarel Erwee, Morne van Wyk, Cody Chetty, Khaya Zondo, Marques Ackerman, Andile Phehlukwayo, Sibonelo Makhanya, Robbie Frylinck, Keshav Maharaj, Prenelan Subrayen, Daryn Dupavillon
