Warriors will lock horns against Knights at Buffalo Park in East London.

Warriors clashed against Dolphins in their last match which was played at Port Elizabeth but lost the game by seven wickets. Knights met a similar fate and lost the last match, played at Centurion, by six wickets against Titans.

Warriors are at the third spot in the points table with three wins and two losses from their nine matches, while four of their matches have been washed out. They have 21 points which is just three short of the table-toppers Lions. Warriors also have a pretty good net run rate after nine matches.

Knights are yet to win a game and have lost four matches in a row. However, they have also been unfortunate in the sense that five of their matches have been washed out due to rain. The team has 10 points and is unlikely to be resurgent in this season.


The last match that was scheduled to be played between Knights and Warriors was washed out due to rain. The rain was so heavy the match was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Matthew Breetzke, Gihahn Cloete, JJ Smuts and Marco Marais are the top batters for the Warriors, while Andrew Birch, Sithembile Langa and Lutho Sipamla would lead their bowling attack.

Knights will bank on Andries Gous, Patrick Kruger and Raynard van Tonder with the bat, while Ryan McLaren, Grant Mokoena and Tshepo Ntuli will shoulder the responsibility of the bowling attack.

 

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

 

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

Knights- Shadley van Schalkwyk, Andries Gous, Patrick Kruger, Raynard van Tonder, Petrus van Biljon, Ryan McLaren, Luvuyo Adam, Grant Mokoena, Tshepo Ntuli, Ottniel Baartman, Gerald Coetzee
