Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction CSA T20 Challenge 2019- Warriors v Lions
The second of the three encounters in the CSA T20 challenge will be between Warriors and Lions at Buffalo Park in East London.
Warriors' home venue Port Elizabeth has been good for them as the team has won four of the last six matches played here. They also have a great head to head record against Lions and have won four of the last five matches played between the two teams.
The Warriors have a lot of quality batsmen in the line up with Gihahn Cloete and Matthew Breetzke opening their batting and Marco Marais and JJ Smuts slated to come at three and four. Cloete played a good hand of 46 at this very venue in the match against Titans.
Andrew Birch, Sisanda Magala and Lutho Sipamla would be the premier bowlers for the Warriors. In the spin department, skipper Smuts can be a useful option that the team has.
The Lions are filled with big-hitters in their batting order. Names like Ryan Rickelton, Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Temba Bavuma and Wiaan Mulder are big enough to send chills down the opposition's bowling camp.
Openers Rickelton and Hendricks have already started this season on a good note. Bjorn Fortuin, Aaron Phangiso and Beuran Hendricks would be the most effective bowlers for the Lions.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.
Warriors- Gihahn Cloete, Matthew Breetzke, Marco Marais, JJ Smuts, Sinethemba Qeshile, Lesiba Ngoepe, Thomas Kaber, Andrew Birch, Jade de Klerk, Sisanda Magala, Lutho Sipamla
Lions- Ryan Rickelton, Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Temba Bavuma, Wiaan Mulder, Dwaine Pretorius, Wihan Lubbe, Bjorn Fortuin, Aaron Phangiso, Malusi Siboto, Beuran Hendricks
