The match between Lions and Titans will be played at the New Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.


Titans have dominated Lions in recent times and have won all of the last four matches played between the two teams. Last time out, Lions suffered a narrow five-run defeat against Cape Cobras at their home venue.

Lions have an explosive top four in Ryan Rickelton, Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen and Temba Bavuma. The all-round acumen of Wiaan Mulder further provides balance to the side.


Rickelton has already notched up two half-centuries in the season till now and is the leading run-scorer for the Lions. Skipper Temba Bavuma is also among the top five run-scorers of the tournament.

Bjorn Fortuin is the leading wicket-taker of the league with eight wickets from four matches and will lead the bowling attack of the Lions. Aaron Phangiso, Malusi Siboto and Beuran Hendricks have also been in good rhythm and all of them together form a formidable bowling combination.

Henry Davids and Tony de Zorzi will open the batting for the Titans with Theunis de Bruyn and Diego Rosier to follow. Among the bowlers, both Shaun von Berg and Gregory Mahlokwana have an economy of under five and are expected to deliver the goods in this match as well.
