This upcoming Momentum ODI Cup 2020 match between the Lions and the Warriors is technically between the second and third-placed team on the league table. That may give the appearance that the two teams have been performing to a similar level and are closely matched to each other.
In reality, though, the Lions have been a much better side than the Warriors in the tournament. The Lions have won four out of their five matches while the Warriors have won just two out of their six.
Interestingly, the one match that the Lions have lost was to the Warriors earlier in this tournament. The return match could prove to be interesting as the Lions look for some revenge and the Warriors look for a way to cement its precarious third-place position.
Lions vs Warriors Momentum ODI Cup 2020 is going to be played at the New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg on the 1st of March 2020.
The Lions have been one of the most consistent batting teams in this tournament as a number of its batsmen have played match-winning knocks at different times. Ryan Rickelton is the obvious name at the top of the order but others like Nicky van Bergh, Wihan Lubbe, Delano Potgieter, and Dominic Hendricks have been impressive as well.
In the previous match, Nicky van Bergh and Delano Potgieter rescued the team after they had lost some early wickets.
This resilience in the batting and the confidence that runs bring makes the Lions a very dangerous batting team.
Aaron Phangiso will lead the bowling attack alongside fellow spinner Bjorn Fortuin. Both of them have been able to exert a very tight level of control on the opposition batsmen and ensured that the side has not had to chase too many big scores down.
Beuran Hendricks is in the South African squad for the ODI’s against Australia so we are not sure if he is going to be available for this match or not. His absence is going to be a big loss for the Lions.
Overall, the Lions may not have any obvious superstars but they have been able to get ahead because of some very good team efforts.
Ryan Rickelton, NJ Van den Bergh, Reeza Hendricks, Dominic Hendricks, Wihan Lubbe, Delano Potgieter, Johannes Diseko, Aaron Phangiso, Bjorn Fortuin, Eldred Hawken, Ayavuya Myoli.
A heavy loss at the hands of the Dolphins has put the Warriors in a tough position. They need to win most of their remaining matches otherwise they could slide down the league standings very quickly. A poor batting performance cost them the match against the Dolphins and that has happened a couple of times earlier in this tournament as well.
There are no easy answers to the batting troubles of the warriors.
Matthew Breetzke is the best batsman of the side and someone who can win matches off his own bat. Counting on him to carry the entire side every single time is just not good planning.
Sinethemba Qeshile scored 80 in the previous match and Lesiba Ngoepe also scored a fifty but they could not help their side reach a match-winning total.
The Warriors are a weak batting team and seem to be quite susceptible to the loss of early wickets.
Lutho Sipamla and Sisanda Magala are the two bowlers leading the attack for the Warriors. They are pretty talented and capable of picking up early wickets. We think one of these two bowlers will need to have a great game to be able to stop the strong Warriors batting.
The Warriors bowling attack needs some runs to defend so that it can ramp up the pressure but that has not happened too often in this tournament.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first with all the rain around.

There is some rain predicted in Johannesburg on match day and so we could be in for some interruptions. It seems likely that the match is going to be shortened and we may ending up struggling to get a result at all.
The pitch in Johannesburg is good for batting and we don’t expect it to be any different for this match. The outfield could be sluggish because of the rain that has fallen and that could make run-scoring a bit more difficult.
