Kimberley, March 17, Sunday at 01:30 PM IST
Dolphins and Knights will face each other for the second time tomorrow at Diamond Oval, Kimberley in the 24th fixture of Momentum One Day Cup 2019. While the tournament is cruising fast towards its business end, Knights are slowly slipping out of the contention. Placed at the bottom, Knights have managed their maiden win of the tournament in the last encounter. The five wickets win over Warriors in the last encounter was Knights’ first win in seven outings. They have lost four encounters while two of their fixtures ended in no results. With just three more games, remaining it’s a do or die situation for the Knights.
On the other side, Dolphins are placed third in the ladder with four wins and three defeats in seven encounters. However, Dolphins have faced two back to back defeat in their last two encounters and would be desperate to bounce back. In the last encounter, Dolphins faced 70 runs drubbing at the hands of Titans, courtesy Heino Kuhn’s ton and Junior Dala’s fifer.
With both the sides eyeing a win, a cracker of a game is expected at Kimberly tomorrow.
Both the sides first met on March 02 at Kingsmead, Durban where Dolphins came out victorious by 22 runs under the DLS method. Having opted to bowl first after winning the toss, Dolphins restricted Knights for 257-9. Robbie Frylinck was the pick of the bowler for Dolphins, finishing at 3-42 while Senuran Muthuswamy returned with 2-35. For Knights, Rudi Second (74 of 76) and Ryan McLaren (47 of 55) were the top contributors with the bat.
Coming to chase, Dolphins registered an easy 22 runs win after the total was revised due to rain interruption. Riding on the back of Sarel Erwee’s (59 of 65) and Morne Van Wyk’s (41 of 56) Dolphins concluded at 139-3 in 27 overs when they were declared winners.
While both the sides would be hoping for a full game, let’s see who takes an edge this time. The match will begin at 01:30 PM IST tomorrow noon.
