Lions would look to consolidate their position at the second spot on CSA T20 Challenge points table when they meet Knights at Diamond Oval on Saturday.
An early loss in the tournament didn’t pull Lions back but they have come out of it stronger. After going down against Cape Cobras in their opening game, Lions have completed a hattrick of wins and only sit behind table-toppers Cape Cobras.
Meanwhile, Knights have had a forgetful run in the tournament so far and are still searching for the first elusive win. It’s not all over for them as they can still lift themselves up to a position if they can get a string of favourable results.
Where and when:
Diamond Oval, Kimberley
9:30 PM (IST) on April 20
Head-to-head (last 5 T20s)
Knights – 1, Lions – 2, No Result – 2
