Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Momentum One Day Cup 2020 - Knights v Warriors

Marco Marais

The 5th match of the Momentum One Day Cup 2020 will be played between Knights and Warriors at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein.

Knights played the second match of the Momentum One Day Cup 2020 which they lost against Dolphins by 94 runs. The Knights' bowlers did a fine job with Shadley van Schalkwyk, Corne Dry, and Shaun von Berg picking up two wickets each.

Obus Pienaar, Tshepo Ntuli and Patrick Kruger were also very tight and did not allow the Dolphins batting to get away. As a result, the Dolhins could only manage 209 from their 50 overs.

However, their batsmen disappointed, with only four batsmen reaching double figures. Skipper Petrus van Biljon and wicketkeeper Wandile Makwetu were the top scorers with 26 and 29 runs respectively as the team collapsed for just 115 runs to lose the match.

Just like the Knights, the Warriors also suffered a loss in a match that was affected by rain. Gihahn Cloete was their most impressive bowler and picked up one wicket while conceding just 39 runs from his 10 overs. All of the other bowlers were quite expensive with Dyllan Mathews picking up two wickets.

Chasing a target of 277, most of Warriors' batsmen got off to start but could not make it count. Rudi Second was the top scorer with a 66 off 65 deliveries. Onke Nyaku and Matthew Breetzke also chipped in with 30 and 23 respectively but those were not enough to take them to victory.

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

Knights - Shadley van Schalkwyk, Corne Dry, Obus Pienaar, Petrus van Biljon (c), Grant Mokoena, Shaun von Berg, Keegan Petersen, Tshepo Ntuli , Wandile Makwetu (wk), Patrick Kruger, Raynard van Tonder

Warriors - Andrew Birch, Gihahn Cloete, Yaseen Vallie (c), Rudi Second, Sisanda Magala, Matthew Breetzke, Marco Marais, Dyllan Matthews, Sinethemba Qeshile (wk), Onke Nyaku, Glenton Stuurman
