Lions will clash against the Knights at the Senwes Park in Potchefstroom.


Lions are coming off a 18-run win in the last match. Playing against Dolphins in Durban, Lions' top three surprisingly failed to get going as each of Ryan Rickelton, Reeza Hendricks and Rassie van der Dussen were dismissed cheaply.

20s from Temba Bavuma and Wihan Lubbe helped to steady the ship but it was ultimately the half-century from Wiaan Mulder which pummelled the Lions to post a respectable target of 160.

In reply, the Dolphins could not find momentum, credit to some brilliant bowling from Bjorn Fortuin and Aaron Phangiso, who not only picked up two wickets apiece but were extremely economical.

The last match of the Knights was against Warriors in Kimberley, which was abandoned without a ball being bowled. The Knights did not get off their CSA T20 Challenge campaign to a great start and lost their first match against Dolphins by four wickets.

Grant Mokoena and Shadley van Schalkwyk scored 20s for the Knights in their opening match but there were no major contributions apart from Aubrey Swanepoel. Shadley van Schalkwyk and Eddie Leie would be their bowlers to watch out.

 

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

 

Lions- Ryan Rickelton, Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Temba Bavuma, Wihan Lubbe, Dwaine Pretorius, Wiaan Mulder, Bjorn Fortuin, Aaron Phangiso, Malusi Siboto, Beuran Hendricks

Knights- Patrick Kruger, Aubrey Swanepoel, Grant Mokoena, Petrus van Biljon, Ryan McLaren, Shadley van Schalkwyk, Corne Dry, Rudi Second, Andries Gous, Eddie Leie, Thandolwethu Mnyaka
