With the ball, Keshav Maharaj had been brilliant in the 2020 season of Momentum One Day Cup with 16 wickets to his name in 7 matches at an average of 14.69. He will be one of the key bowlers for Dolphins, along with Prenelan Subrayen, who also shone bright with 9 wickets in 9 games.

Momentum Multiply Titans on the other hand finished at the 5th position on points table in the 2020 season of Momentum One Day Cup. They won 4 out of the 10 completed games and could not qualify for the semi final spot.
For Titans, Aiden Markram will play an important role in the upcoming tournament. In 2020 season, he finished with 287 runs in the 6 games he played at an average of 47.83. Dean Elgar is another top quality batsman in the ranks of Titans. He played very well in the last season with 399 runs to his name in 10 games at an average of 57. He is expected to continue his fantastic form from the recently concluded Test Series against Sri Lanka and take Titans through the line.
With the ball, Imran Manack performed very well and claimed 13 wickets in the 2020 season at an average of 30.77. He will be vested with the responsibility to take early wickets and peg the opposition down. Apart from him, Junior Dala would have rolled up his sleeves to perform his best in the upcoming tournament. Many people know what he is capable of when he hits form and he can well be the most valuable player for Titans in the season ahead.
