Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions: North West vs Knights – CSA Provincial T20 Semi Final 2
The 30th T20 and the second Semi-final of the CSA Provincial T20 Knock-out competition will take place between North West and Knights at the Kimberley Oval, Kimberley.
North West Current Form:
North West won their last game against Boland by 3 runs in a nail biting thriller.
North West won the toss and elected to bat first. They could only manage a modest total of 156 for 8 in 20 overs despite the efforts of Eben Botha at the top of the order. Duan Jansen played a valuable knock of 27 runs in the death overs to ensure North West got to the competitive total.
Chasing 156, Boland got off to a flier, courtesy a blinder by Janneman Malan and a good hand from Pieter Malan. The middle order simply fell like a pack of cards while J Malan stood at the other end witnessing a collapse. As a result, Boland went from 108 for 0 to 153 for 6 in 20 overs, losing the match by a very small margin of 3 runs.
Knights Current Form:
Knights won their last match against Western Province by 4 runs.
Knights won the toss and elected to bat first. They could not get off to a great start and lost the first wicket for just 17 runs. In came Rilee Rossouw and he started smashing the bowlers to all parts of the ground from ball one. After the second wicket fell, he partnered with Farhaan Behardien to set his eyes on the 200 run mark. Eventually, Knights achieved 223 for 3 in 20 overs. Rossouw hit 2 consecutive sixes off the last two balls. He was incredible in his performance.
Chasing a huge target of 223, Western Province found themselves in trouble early on. They had lost 3 wickets for just 54 runs. Wayne Parnell came in at number 7 and almost turned the match in Western Province’s favour with his brave knock of 80 in 29 balls. He tried his best but could not take his team over the line as Western Province lost the match by 4 runs.
