East London, March 01, Friday at 05:00 PM IST
After securing their maiden win in the last encounter against Titans, Highveld Lions would be looking to gain some momentum when they face off Warriors in their next clash at Buffalo Park, East London on Friday evening. The clash is set to begin at 05:00 PM IST.
Prior to the clash with Titans on Wednesday, Lions were winless in the tournament and were placed at the bottom. After winning the toss, Lions opted to bowl first and got a hefty target of 310 runs to chase down. The run-chase was powered by skipper Temba Bavuma’s unbeaten 117 well complimented by Reeza Hendricks (95) at the top and Rassie van der Dussen (46*) in the middle. Lions chased down the target with 8 wickets in hand and 18 balls to spare.
Earlier, Dean Elgar (137) and skipper Heinrich Klassen (82) guided Titan to 309-7 after being reduced to 27-3 in the tenth over. The 8 wickets massive win helped the Lions to grab the fourth position in the ladder, while the Titans slipped to the fifth spot.
Warriors are sitting at the top of the table with three wins and one no result in a total of four outings. They started their campaign with 3 wickets win over Cape Cobras and secured 14 runs win over Knights and 8 wickets win over Dolphins in the last two encounters. Their second encounter against Lions ended in a no result due to rain playing the spoilsport.
Warriors would be hoping to continue their winning streak and retain the top spot when they take on Lions tomorrow at East London.
