Dolphins Vs Lions Final, CSA T20 Challenge 2021

Dolphins will take on Lions in the summit clash of the CSA T-20 series. The match will be played at the Kinsmead, Durban and is set to get underway at 2:30 PM local time

Lions and Dolphins were the two best teams of League stages. Dolphins won all their matches while Lions only lost came against Dolphins. On paper, Lions are by far a better team but we'd say both teams are on par in terms of the performance. Dolphins have played better than most of us expected. Sarel Erwee, Keegan Petersen, Khaya Zondo, David Miller, all are in top form. 

The bowling does not have big names but they've done well, especially Keshav Maharaj. Coming to Lions, if we take out there performance against Dolphins, they've been unstoppable, but that was expected looking at the strength in their team. Batting, bowling, everything looks top quality. The match is a expected to a close game, no doubt but Lions are the defending champions and they have that experience of playing in crunch games. They played a knock out game yesterday as well and won comfortably. For us, they are marginal favourites.

Pitch Report

The wicket is on the slower side and timing the ball won't be easy. Slower bowlers will enjoy bowling on this surface. 

Toss Prediction

The slowness of the wicket might force the skippers to bat first

Dolphins Team News & Playing 11

DOL Team News

Dolphins rested Keegan Petersen and Senuran Muthuswami, both of them are expected to be back for the final of CSA T20 Challenge 2021

DOL Key Players 

  • David Miller - Miller is looking in prime form after two decent performances in the last two games. He backed up his 50 against Lions with a 49 against Titans. If he gets going, he'll be very difficult to stop.
  • Khaya Zondo - Khaya Zondo has played well throughout the tournament. The last few matches hasn't been that great but that happens in this format. He's another batsmen Lions need to be vary of. 
  • Keshav Maharaj - Maharaj is really enjoying the Durban surface. He's been magnificent and picked up wickets in every game. He's expected to continue his good run

DOL Team Form

Dolphins have been very good in the tournament and have won all their  games in the league Stages

Dolphins Predicted Playing 11

Keegan Petersen, Sarel Erwee, Senuran Muthusamy, David Miller, Khaya Zondo, Mangaliso Mosehle, Robbie Frylink, Prenelan Subrayen, Keshav Maharaj, Daryn Dupavillon, Kerwin Mungroo.

Lions Team News & Playing 11

LIO Team News

We are pretty sure that Lions are going to play the same XI they fielded against the Warriors unless there is an injury.

LIO Key players 

  • Reeza Hendricks - He's having a fine tournament. He stroked a 50 against Cobras then backed it up with a quick fire 30 in the last match. We'll back him to come good in the next game. 
  • Temba Bavuma - Temba Bavuma has batted beautifully for the Lions. He's been rock solid for them. He played a top knock of 48 in the last game and is expected to play well in the final too.
  • Sisanda Magala - Spinners are very dangerous on this wicket thus we think Magala will have a bigger role to play than Rabada, Hendricks and Fortuin

LIO Team Form

Apart from a hiccup against Dolphins, Lions have been too class in the tournament.

Lions Predicted Playing 11

Reeza Hendricks, Ryan Rickelton, Rasssie Van Der Dussen, Temba Bavuma, Dwaine Pretorius, Delano Potgieter, Bjorn Fortuin, Kagiso Rabada, Beuran Hendricks, Sisanda Magala, Aaron Phangiso

Dolphins vs Lions Prediction

It's a tough call to pick a winner between two top teams but Lions have more quality in their team and they have more experience of playing in such big games. While the match is expected to be close, we think Lions will emerge victorious.

Final Verdict

Lions are favorites to win against Dolphins. Back Lions to beat Dolphins at 1.83

DOL vs LIO Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Ryan Rickelton at 8.5 is a good pick. We have selected him as he looked is the best pick available. He bats at the top thus have the most opportunity to score big.

  • Batsmen

    David Miller at 10, Reeza Hendricks at 9.5 and Temba Bavuma at 9.5 and Sarel Erwee at 9.0 will form a solid batting order. Miller has a 56 and 49 in his last two innings while Reeza Hendricks stroked a 75 against Cobras. He looked good in the last match as well. Bavuma has been very consistent while Erwee is also in good form.

  • All rounder

    Senuran Muthuswami and Prenalen Subrayen at 9.0 Robert Frylink at 8.5 will be our all rounders. Frylink has delivered decent performances under throughout the tournament while Muthuswami and Subrayen can be handy with bat, but their bowling will be a real threat for Lions as spinners have been dangerous on this surface.

  • Bowlers

    Keshav Maharaj at 9.0, Sisanda Magala at 9.0 and Beuran Hendricks at 8.5 and complete out team. Again, Maharaj and Magala will be dangerous with their spin while Hendricks has bowled well throughout the competition.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Reeza Hendricks will be our skipper while Robert Frylink can be backed as his deputy.

DOL vs LIO Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:David Miller Khaya Zondo, Temba Bavuma, Reeza Hendricks(C)

  • All Rounder:Robert Frylink(VC), Dwaine Pretorius

  • Wicket Keeper:Ryan Rickelton

  • Bowler:Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Beuran Hendricks, Sisanda Magala
