Warriors vs Knights

Warriors Team News & Playing 11

The Warriors have a strong batting line-up and they will look to the likes of Gihahn Cloete, Matthew Breetzke, Marco Marais and skipper JJ Smuts to do the job for them with the bat. Marais has shown excellent form this season. He is one of the tournament's leading run-scorers at the moment and a key component in this batting unit. Smuts been underwhelming this year and the team needs him to step up. Pacers Andrew Birch, Lutho Sipamla and Sisanda Magala form a potent Warriors bowling attack and it will be crucial that at least two of them have a good outing with the ball on Sunday. Sipamla has been the team's best bowler and he will be backed by his skipper to pick up wickets upfront with the new ball. Andrew Birch is their next best option and he will look to maintain pressure on the Knights from the other end.

Knights Team News & Playing 11

The Knights will bank on the likes of Patrick Kruger, Raynard van Tonder and Grant Mokoena to deliver the goods with the bat in this match of CSA T20 Challenge. Kruger has scored the most runs for the team this season and the onus will be on him to provide a strong start to the innings. van Tonder has chipped in with a few notable contributions and his knock is going to be crucial as well at the top of the order. In terms of bowling, the Knights will have their hopes pinned on the pace troika of Ryan McLaren, Shadley van Schalkwyk and Ottniel Baartman. McLaren has been their most successful bowler this year and he will be expected to cause a few problems for the Warriors. Shadley has been economical so far and his tight spells could result in some false shots from the batsmen.

Warriors vs Knights Prediction

The Warriors and Knights have had a contrasting season. While the former have been consistent, the latter have struggled to win games this year. Home advantage will give the Warriors a definite edge over the Knights and having won four of their last six completed matches at this ground will them a huge confidence boost as well. The Knights do have a few quality bowlers in their side and they might have an outside chance if they perform well with the ball. The Warriors, however, are the in-form team and it certainly won't be easy for the Knights to beat them.

Final Verdict: Back Warriors to beat Knights.
