Dolphins Team News & Playing 11
The Dolphins' batting will depend largely on Vaughn van Jaarsveld, Sarel Erwee and Dane Vilas (wk) who have all made at least one major contribution with the bat in this year's Momentum One Day Cup. Erwee is currently averaging 91 and is coming off an unbeaten 116 against Cape Cobras while Vilas struck a half-century in the reverse fixture last month. Jaarsveld is one of the team's leading run-scorers this season and the onus will be on him to take them off to a good start. With Imran Tahir and Andile Phehlukwayo away on international duties, the Dolphins will be counting on Keshav Maharaj, Calvin Savage and Prenelan Subrayen to do the job for them with the ball. Maharaj has not been in the best of forms lately and it will be crucial from the team's perspective that he delivers a good performance here. Off-spinner Subrayen has taken four wickets so far at a decent economy of 5.37, but the key man in this bowling attack will be Calvin Savage as he is expected to get more assistance from the Durban wicket.

Titans Team News & Playing 11
Aiden Markram was doing an excellent job for the Titans at the top of the order. But since he is currently playing for South Africa in the ODI series against Sri Lanka, the team will look to Dean Elgar, Heino Kuhn, Heinrich Klaasen and Farhaan Behardien to score the runs for them. Diego Rosier, who smashed an unbeaten 92 off 62 balls in his very first game of the season against Cape Cobras, looks a promising talent in this batting line-up. Elgar blasted 137 against the Lions last month and he will be expected to replicate that performance. The Titans may have lost Lungi Ngidi due to his international commitments, but they still have Chris Morris and Junior Dala in their bowling arsenal and these two fast bowlers are likely to make a big impact in this match. Morris has taken eight wickets at an economy of 5.44 while Dala is amongst the tournament's best bowlers with 11 wickets in 7 matches. They rattled the Cobras in the last game with a four-wicket haul each.
Titans Predicted Playing 11

Dolphins vs Titans Prediction
The Titans and Dolphins have both been impressive in this year's Momentum One Day Cup. The Dolphins have beaten the Titans on the previous two occasions which includes the 12-run win at Centurion last month. They, however, have faced two defeats in their last three matches while the Titans are coming on the back of four successive wins. The batting line-ups of the two sides are pretty evenly matched but it is the superior bowling of the Titans that gives them the upper hand in this contest. They have the experience of Chris Morris and Junior Dala, both of whom are looking threatening at the moment, whereas the Dolphins don't have that kind of quality in their pace attack. The Titans have the momentum with them and we expect them to extend their winning streak.
Back Titans to beat Dolphins at 1.66 with Betway, 1.72 with Bet365 and 1.64 with Betrally.
