About the Match

Last season runners-up Dolphins will start their campaign this year with the match against Warriors at Durban on 13th November; the Warriors had failed to qualify for the semi-finals last year and they will be eager to start on a positive note here. The competition is still in the early stages but we could see some fireworks across the park with many players being in-form and raring to go. Both teams will bank upon talented domestic youngsters to give their side the required impetus; it needs to be seen which one of them can overcome the other on Sunday to kick-start the season with a win.

Dolphins

Khaya Zondo, the middle-order batsman, will lead the side that consists of experienced players like Kevin Pietersen, Morne van Wyk, Cameron Delport, Cody Chetty, and Robbie Frylinck, who can add depth to the batting line-up. The bowling squad consists of medium-pacers Andile Phehlukwayo, Mthokozisi Shezi, Vaughn van Jaarsveld, Sibonelo Makhanya and Craig Alexander; Prenelan Subrayen, Keshav Maharaj, and Delport can bring variety to the attack with their spin variations. The batting line-up could also be strengthened by players like Imraan Khan, Calvin Savage, Daryn Smit, Divan van Wyk and Dithole; they can focus on stabilizing the innings from the middle and get the scoreboard ticking whether batting first or during the chase. While the experienced players could guide the team through tough situations, the youngsters must shoulder the responsibilities of getting the big runs on the board and could play sensibly to showcase their skills. They lost out to Titans in the fight for the title last season by a close margin but they will be determined to repeat their good performance through the league by winning this first match.

Warriors

The batting line-up has experienced players like captain Colin Ingram, Clyde Fortuin, Colin Ackermann, David White and JJ Smuts, who have the skills to help the team build a strong foundation with steady partnerships at the top and middle order. All-rounders like Jonker, Gqamane, Ngoepe and Sisanda Magala can try to contribute with bat and ball to help the team dominate on the field. Spinners like Simon Harmer can add an edge to the squad and he has proven to be a tricky opponent last time around by providing quick breakthroughs; Kyle Abbott will feature in the team in the latter part of the series as he is tied up with national commitments but he will lead the pace attack when around. Andrew Birch, David White, Jerry Nqolo and Sigwili bring their skills with medium pace to the table and can try to demolish the opposition on Sunday. They didn’t qualify for the semi-finals last year but with a good strategy and focused execution, Warriors can definitely prove to be a tough nut to crack here.

Our Prediction

Both teams have talented match-winners who can help their respective sides win here; although the contest could be well fought, we feel that Dolphins, with a strong batting line-up and a mix of local and overseas players, are better placed to conquer the turf on Sunday
