The Knights and the Dolphins would have played one match by the time this one comes around. We have no idea about the results of those matches at the time of this writing, however, you should take a look at the scorecards when you can to try and get an idea of the team selection strategies.
That being said, let us look at the squads of the two teams. Most of the players pick themselves and we can get a fair idea of who the team to back in this contest is.
Knights vs Dolphins CSA T20 Challenge 2021 is going to be played at Kingsmead, Durban on the 20th of February 2021.
This is one match that the Knights would be targeting as a potential win as they are pretty evenly matched with the Dolphins, on paper at least.
The Knights have a decent batting lineup that does not have any major superstars but it does have some solid domestic performers. We are looking at Grant Mokoena, Raynard van Tonder, Matthew Kleinveldt, and Jacques Snyman to make an impact in this tournament.
Snyman got a taste of international cricket recently and seemed to be a good fit at that level. Pite van Biljon is going to lead the team and he is a pretty good batsman as well. Farhaan Behardien seems to have resigned himself to batting way too down in the order and so we do not take his presence as a big factor anymore.
He will add a lot of experience to the team, though.
Ferisco Adams, Patrick Kruger, and Gerald Coetzee are going to lead the bowling lineup with the all-rounders chipping in regularly as well.
The balance of the team is pretty decent and we think the Knights should be able to perform pretty consistently all things considered.
AGS Gous, Wandile Makwetu, PJ van Biljon, Farhaan Behardien, Grant Mokoena, Patrick Kruger, Ferisco Adams, Jacques Snyman, Shaun von Berg, Migael Pretorius, Alfred Mothoa.
The Dolphins are going to have David Miller at their disposal for the first time in a long time! He is going to miss the first phase of the PSL to play for the Dolphins and we think that is great news for South Africa.
Miller will lead the batting lineup alongside Khaya Zondo, Grant Roelofson, Sarel Erwee, Andile Phehlukwayo, Senuram Muthusamy, and Robbie Frylinck.
This is a pretty decent batting lineup and if Miller can continue his good form then this could be a tough team to stop.
Keshav Maharaj is the captain of the Dolphins and will lead the bowling attack. He is an under-rated bowler in T20 cricket but we worry he will try to put himself in situations that he is not the best suited to.
Kerwin Mungroo, Sauram Muthusamy, Daryn Dupavillon, and Eathan Bosch will likely be a part of the bowling lineup as well.
Not a great side but definitely one that has some proven match-winners in the batting department.

The team that wins the toss is likely to want to field first. We don’t think winning the toss is a big advantage in Durban.

The weather forecast for Durban is pretty good with only a small percentage of rain forecast. As far as the pitch goes, we know that Durban dishes out a great batting surface that will remain the same for the duration of the match.
The ball will come on to the bat nicely and there may be some extra-bounce for the bowlers to exploit, but overall the batsmen are going to be heavily favored by the conditions.
A score of around 170 should be seen as par batting first.
We are going to bet on the Knights in this match. The Dolphins do have some big-names in the batting but their overall team balance is poor. We also do not like the fact that they are a bit dependent on Miller.
The Knights have a decent batting lineup and some consistent bowlers.
Bet on the Knights to win.
