The 18th T20 of the CSA Provincial T20 Knock-out competition will take place between Warriors and Border at the Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein.
Current Form Warriors:
Warriors won their last match against Limpopo by 120 runs.
Warriors batted first and put on a mammoth total of 243 for 6 in 20 overs. Wihan Lubbe and Breetzke provided a phenomenal start to the team by smashing 129 runs for the first wicket partnership. JJ Smuts and Diego Rosier then followed up on the start provided and tonked the bowlers to all parts of the ground. JJ Smuts made 52 in just 26 deliveries. The middle order of Warriors looked in complete control and on the back of their effort, Warriors crossed the 240 run mark in 20 overs.
Chasing 243, Limpopo got off to a terrible start, losing opener Kaestner early on. Malcolm Nofal tried to revive the chase with his knock of 38 in 23 balls but it was never enough as the required rate kept mounting up to reach the impossible. In the end, Limpopo were restricted at 123 for 9, as they lost the match by 120 runs.
Current Form Border:
Border lost their last game against Boland by 18 runs
Boland batted first and the openers played very well for the first 3 overs. Pieter Malan was dismissed in the 4th over and Boland lost their momentum after his dismissal. At one point, they looked to be struggling at 66 for 4. This is when Christiaan Jonker came to the crease and took complete control of the situation. He made an unbeaten 56 off 33 balls to take the team’s total to a respectable 172 for 6 in 20 overs.
Chasing 172, Border got off to a terrible start as they lost 3 wickets for just 35 runs. Jerry Nqolo and Thomas Kaber then took the responsibility to take their team over the line but both of them lost their wickets at important junctures and Border eventually fell short by 18 runs.
