KTS vs HL Dream11 Match Prediction, CSA 4-Day Franchise Series, Knights vs Highveld Lions, 13 December

KTS vs HL Dream11 Prediction: This is a Pool B match in CSA 4-Day Franchise Series as Knights and Highveld Lions run into each other at Bloemfontein cricket stadium on Sunday afternoon (IST). Here is KTS vs HL Prediction for this fixture.
Knights lost the last two games, while Lions come here on a two-game winning run, including the 4-wicket win over the Knights.
That was the game that must be frightening Knights still. They had the ball in their court after taking a 98-run lead in the first inning. And even after a meagre 235 runs effort in the 2nd inning, Lions were always the 2nd favourite chasing 336 runs in the 4th inning. But a lacklustre performance with the ball made the life easy for the Lions, who won by 4 wickets in the end.

Fixture name: CSA 4-Day Franchise Series
Competition/Tournament: Knights vs Highveld Lions
Date: Sunday, 13 December 2020
Time: 01:30 PM (IST).
Ground/Stadium: Bloemfontein cricket stadium

Brief score of last result at the venue: Knights made 300 in the 1st inning of the last match at this venue against the same opponent, with Lions bundling out for just 202 in reply. But the tie turned quite spectacularly, as Lions, after Knights could manage only 235 in the 2nd inning, chased down 336 to win the game by 4 wickets.

Points table standings: With 2 wins, Lions are second in Pool B after four rounds, while Knights have also racked up two wins in four games, but sit third on the table due to an inferior net run-rate.

KTS vs HL Prediction, Captain, Vice-captain & Differential Picks

Wesley Marshall: Piled up a staggering 193 runs in the last match including incredible 145 runs in the 1st inning. He was truly sensational and should be in your Dream11 fantasy cricket teams.
Ryan Rickleton: Perhaps the safest option as the wicket-keeper in this game. Of keepers of both teams, he is in better form.
Wiaan Mulder: Scored 91 and 100 runs in two innings respectively. That is enough to suggest the form he is in at the moment.
Matthew Kleinveldt: Scored 77 runs in the 2nd inning of the last match and looked more of his own self. He shouldn’t be ignored in Dream 11 Prediction.
Farhaan Behardien: For a player of his profile, he must rack up better numbers. He may be slightly out of form, but in Grand League teams, he is worth the shot.
Gerald Coetzee, Shaun von Berg and Patrick Botha shared 12 wickets between them, with all of them picking 4 wickets each across two innings.
