Cricket Betting Tips & Match Predictions: CSA T20 Challenge 2021- Hollywoodbets Dolphins vs Imperial Lions- Match 17
The Final of the CSA T20 Challenge 2021 will be played between Hollywoodbets Dolphins and Imperial Lions at the Kingsmead Stadium, Durban.
Current Form Hollywoodbets Dolphins:
Hollywoodbets Dolphins have been dominant in the tournament so far and they would like to continue the momentum going into the Finals.
In their last game against Momemtum Multiply Titans, Dolphins won the toss and elected to bat first. Sarel Erwee was flawless at the top of the order as he smashed 33 off just 20 deliveries. The middle order was ordinary except for David Miller, who stayed until the end of the innings and propelled Dolphins to a total of 151 for 6 in 20 overs. Miller made 49 off 35 deliveries.
Chasing 151, Titans never looked in comfortable zone as they missed many opportunities to score early on. Aiden Markram went back to the pavilion after scoring 3 off 8 balls. Dean Elgar could not be impressive either as he perished for 25 off 31 balls. The top order consumed so many deliveries that there was too much left to do for the middle order. Heinrich Klaasen tried his best with his knock of 29 off 14 balls but it was not enough as Titans fell short of 7 runs in the end.
Current Form Imperial Lions:
Imperial Lions have defeated Warriors in the playoff game on Saturday. They have deservingly qualified to play the finals against Dolphins.
In their last game against Warriors, Lions lost the toss and were asked to field first. Jon Jon Smuts and Wihan Lubbe got their team to a spectacular start, adding 77 runs for the 1st wicket partnership. Lubbe made 52 before losing his wicket to Sisanda Magala. After his dismissal, the scoring rate dipped by a great margin. However, a timely cameo of 37 runs by Tristan Stubbs took the team’s total to 141 for 6 in 20 overs.
Chasing 141, Reeza Hendricks seemed to be in a hurry as he smashed 32 off just 19 balls. Once he got dismissed, the scoring rate reduced but Tenda Bavuma ensured that they hit the odd ball to keep the pressure away. Bavuma made an unbeaten 48 off 37 deliveries to take his team home by 7 wickets with 5 balls to spare.
Let’s have a look at the squads:
Imperial Lions: Temba Bavuma (capt), Reeza Hendricks, Dwaine Pretorius, Delano Potgieter, Beuran Hendricks, Wiaan Mulder, Lutho Sipamla, Bjorn Fortuin, Ryan Rickelton, Sisanda Magala, Malusi Siboto, Eldred Hawken, Kagiso Rabada, Rassie van der Dussen, Aaron Phangiso, Ruan Haanbroek.
Hollywoodbets Dolphins: Keshav Maharaj (capt), Sarel Erwee, Khaya Zondo, Kerwin Mungroo, Robbie Frylinck, Keegan Petersen, Grant Roelofsen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Ruan de Swardt, Daryn Dupavillon, Mangaliso Mosehle, Senuran Muthusamy, Prenelan Subrayen, Eathan Bosch, Ottneil Baartman.
