Two losses in the previous two matches for the Titans have left them in a bit of a sticky position when it comes to making the playoffs of the CSA T20 Challenge 2021 ( also called the Betway T20 Challenge 2021).
They are now going up against the Dolphins in a must-win contest. The only problem for them is that Dolphins are so far unbeaten in the entire tournament. Four wins from four matches have left the Dolphins comfortably placed in the tournament and they will now be looking to just continue this same momentum for the last few matches.
A title definitely seems within grasp of the Dolphins but they would not want to get too far ahead of themselves.
Titans vs Dolphins CSA T20 Challenge 2021is going to be played at Kingsmead, Durban on the 26th of February 2021.
For a team like the Titans to be in a position of uncertainty is almost a crime. They are filled to the brim with international players and some of the most wanted T20 stars in the world. Surely they will lift themselves for this must-win match otherwise they risk being embarrassed and knocked out even before making the playoffs.
The Titans batting is very strong on paper but two poor performances would have dented the confidence of the players. Henry Davids, Aiden Markram, Dean Elgar, Heinrich Klaasen, and Chris Morris are all good enough to represent South Africa. In fact, this could very well be mistaken for a South African international lineup even today!
We know they have had two poor matches but there is just no way you can look past this kind of batting strength.
Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi, Chris Morris, and Simon Harmer are a part of the bowling attack that is one again, international quality. We think Tabraiz Shamsi plates a very important role for the Titans and the team seems to struggle when he is not at his best.
The quality and international class in this lineup is beyond question, the question is whether these players can bring it all together in this match.

The Dolphins are unbeaten in this tournament but they would not want to take it easy against the Titans. For one thing, it is always good to stay in the winning habit but they would also love the chance of getting rid of a dangerous opponent.
We don’t think any team, including the Dolphins, would want to play the Titans in a knockout match.
The Dolphins have a very tight-knit team that is being led in the batting department by David Miller. He smashed 56 not out in the previous match for the Dolphins and is in good touch.
Sarel Erwee, Khaya Zondo, and Robbie Frylinck are some of the other dangerous batsmen in this team. The current form of the Dolphins is unquestionably better than the Titans but just pen down the two teams side by side and you would pick the Titans on most days.
Keshav Maharaj has opened the bowling for the Dolphins in this tournament and been a revelation. His T20 record was okay but he has just taken his game to another level in the last few matches. He has almost always been able to pick up early wickets and does not give away too many runs either.
Robbie Frylinck, Ottniel Baartman, Kerwin Mungroo, and Prenelan Subrayen are the other bowlers in this bowling attack. This is not a weak bowling attack but you would think the batting might of the Titans should be able to make it really tough for them.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. There is some rain around and the ground may be a bit slow to start out with. We think the conditions could become significantly better in the second inning and so the toss could be an important one to win.

There are some thunderstorms predicted for earlier in the day and so we could have some interruptions. The hope is that the rain would have passed by the time this match starts and so we could get a full match to enjoy.
The pitch is going to be good for batting. The ball comes on to the bat nicely and there is a nice amount of bounce as well. We think the players would have liked the pitch to be a bit faster but there are just so many matches being played on it that they cannot complain.
A score of around 170 should be seen as par batting first.
We are going to stick with the Titans in this match and back them to hand the Dolphins their first defeat of the tournament. The Titans have lost their previous two matches but their batting is world-class, they have power in the middle-order, and their bowling attack is very good too. The Dolphins cannot be taken lightly, but we think if there is one team that can beat them, then it is the Titans.
Bet on the Titans to win.
This is a very enticing bet looking at the batting strength of the Titans. Apart from Dean Elgar, most of the leading batsmen of the Titans are prolific six-hitters. Just one of them needs to get set and they are going to be able to win you this bet with ease. Also, the Titans have a very solid bowling attack to prevent the Dolphins from hitting sixes as well.
If there is one batsman on the Titans that has a proven record of delivering under pressure then it is Dean Elgar. He just seems to turn it on when the side needs it the most. He bats in the top-order and will get plenty of opportunities to score runs. We think he is not in as bad a batting rut as it appears to be either.
This could be one of the smartest bets for this match.
