Titans vs Lions

Titans Team News & Playing 11

The Titans boast a formidable top-order batting and they will be expecting the likes of Theunis de Bruyn, Tony de Zorzi and Diego Rosier to fire against the Lions. de Bruyn is the tournament's leading run-getter and he recently hit a fifty against the Cobras. de Zorzi too smashed a 47-ball 70 in that game and Rosier has also been chipping in with useful contributions. When it comes to bowling, the Titans will turn to Junior Dala - their most consistent performer with the ball this season. The paceman notched up 3 wickets in the reverse fixture and he will pose the biggest threat to the Lions. Gregory Mahlokwana is another bowler in this line-up who can trouble the opposition with his left-arm spin.

Lions Team News & Playing 11

The Lions will bank on Ryan Rickelton, Reeza Hendricks and Rassie van der Dussen to score the big runs for them against the Titans. Rickelton has been the team's most reliable batsman this year and he will be expected to provide a flying start to the innings. Hendricks and van der Dussen scored 77 and 85 respectively in the reverse encounter and both will look to replicate that performance. Bjorn Fortuin, Aaron Phangiso and Dwaine Pretorius are the main threats in this bowling attack. Fortuin has been outstanding this season and the left-arm spinner will look to apply pressure on the batsmen in the powerplay. The Titans will also be wary of seamer Nono Pongolo who took three wickets against them at Johannesburg.

Titans vs Lions Prediction

The Lions emerged victorious when they took on the Titans earlier in CSA T20 2019 season and they will now look to do the double over them. However, the Titans will be playing at their home ground and so they will have the advantage of knowing the conditions beforehand. Both the teams have pretty evenly matched bowling attacks but it is the superior top-order batting of the Titans that give them the edge over their opponents. Barring that loss at Johannesburg last week, the Titans have had plenty of success against the Lions in the recent past and we expect them to avenge their defeat from last time.

Final Verdict: Back Titans to beat Lions.
