The first match of the Momentum ODI Cup 2021 is going to be played between the Titans and Dolphins. These are two of the best teams of the competition and we can expect some sparks to fly in the opening fixture.
Titans vs Dolphins Momentum ODI Cup 2021 is going to be played at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom on the 9th of January 2021.
The Titans suffered a terrible tournament in the previous edition of the ODI Cup but we think they are going to be much better this time around. The timing of the tournament is such that most of the international players are going to be available.
This means that Dean Elgar, Aiden Markram, Farhaan Behardien, and Grant Thomson are the players to watch out for in the batting. If Markram gets his act together then he is pretty much unstoppable while Dean Elgar comes into the tournament in great form.
The bowling is a bit weak but Corbin Bosch and Gregory Maholkwana are two bowlers to keep an eye on.
GM Thomson, Theunis de Bruyn, Neil Brand, DS Rosier, Sibonelo Makhanya, Rubin Hermann, Dayyaan Galiem, Junior Dala, Thando Ntini, KY Abbott, Tabraiz Shamsi.
The defending champions (by default) are probably the pre-tournament favorites once more. They have a star-studded lineup as well with Sarel Erwee, Khaya Zondo, Robie Frylinck, and Keshav Maharaj in the team.
More importantly, though, the Dolphins are a team that has been successful in other domestic competitions as well. That is a big factor to take into account as a well-settled team with solid domestic players can often get the better of an uncertain team with international superstars.
We do think the Dolphins may be a bit overmatched in this match especially if all of the Titans' best players are available for selection.
Grant Roelofsen, David Miller, Khaya Zondo, Marques Ackerman, Andile Phehlukwayo, Senuran Muthusamy, P Subrayen, Ruan de Swardt, Robert Frylinck, Kerwin Mungroo, Ottneil Baartman.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. Setting the total and batting without pressure could be a big advantage in this match.

There is a little bit of rain forecast for match day bit nothing that should be too concerning. The pitch is going to be an interesting one. Since this is the 9nly venue for the entire tournament, it will need to be very flat and dense to hold up otherwise it is going to be a mud pit by the end of the week!
This is why, expect the pitch to be a bit slow but flat where the batsmen are able to score runs after getting set and the bowlers find it difficult to get wickets.
A score of around 300 should be par.
We think the Titans are the team to back in this opening encounter. Make sure you check out the playing eleven before you place your bet, though, as team selection can be a real surprise in tournaments like these.
Bet on the Titans to win.
