Lions will take on Warriors at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.


Lions are sitting pretty at the top of the points table with three wins and one loss from seven matches. Three of their matches have been washed out and the team has 19 points.

Warriors, on the other hand, have only won two and lost one out of their seven matches. But, four of their matches have been washed out due to which they have 16 points and are at the third spot.

The last matches of Lions and Warriors were both washed out without even a ball being bowled and the players on both sides would be raring to go.

The Lions beat Titans by 19 runs in the last completed match while the Warriors came out victorious against Cape Cobras in the match played at Port Elizabeth by 10 runs.

The Lions have probably the most impressive batting order with the likes of Reeza Hendricks, Ryan Rickelton, Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen and Wiaan Mulder featuring at the top five spots. The team also has a lot of international experience with Rassie van der Dussen making the cut for the 15-member South African World Cup squad. Dwaine Pretorius, Nono Pongolo, Bjorn Fortuin and Aaron Phangiso would be the main bowlers for the Lions.

Gihahn Cloete, JJ Smuts, Marco Marais, Andrew Birch and Lutho Sipamla are some of the top quality players that Warriors possess.

 

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

Warriors- Gihahn Cloete, Matthew Breetzke, JJ Smuts, Sinethemba Qeshile, Marco Marais, Onke Nyaku, Thomas Kaber, Andrew Birch, Jade de Klerk, Lutho Sipamla, Sisanda Magala
