Kingsmead, Durban is the venue for Wednesday’s televised action in the CSA T20 Challenge as the Dolphins clash with the Warriors
The Dolphins have a record of 1 win, 2 defeats and 1 no result to show for their efforts so far. In their most recent outing they were beaten by 8 runs away to the Cobras, coming up short in a chase of 153 for victory despite 53 from Zondo and a blitz of 47 runs off just 23 balls from Frylink at the death.
The Dolphins started their campaign with a 4 wicket home win over the Knights before another home fixture against the Lions saw them beaten by 18 runs and their scheduled visit to the Titans was abandoned without a ball being bowled.
This was how the Dolphins lined up against the Cobras last time out:
Sarel Erwee, Morne van Wyk (wk), Cody Chetty, Khaya Zondo (capt), Marques Ackerman, Sibonelo Makhanya, Robbie Frylinck, Keshav Maharaj, Prenelan Subrayen, Lwandiswa Zuma, Daryn Dupavillon.
The Warriors were frustrated by rain in a home fixture against the Lions in East London on Sunday. They were in trouble early but Marais crashed 82 off just 33 balls including 8 maximums and the Warriors were 155/5 with 8 balls remaining when the rain came and no further play was possible.
The Warriors started their tournament with a 4 run (DLS) upset win away to the Titans where they conceded 216 runs bowling first and they were 60 without loss after 6 overs when play was halted for a second time. A wet outfield in their subsequent visit to the Knights in Kimberley saw the game abandoned without a ball being bowled and in their third outing they went down by 7 wickets away to the Cobras.
This was how the Warriors lined up last time out.
Jon-Jon Smuts (capt), Andrew Birch, Matthew Breetzke, Gihahn Cloete, Jade de Klerk, Marco Marais, Lesiba Ngoepe, Sinethemba Qeshile, Sisanda Magala, Lutho Sipamla, Onke Nyaku.

Note prices quoted are correct at the time of publication but are subject to change.
The betting looks about right given both sides have just the 1 win and bad weather has been a factor in their tournament so far. However slight preference is for the Warriors who might just have a trump card in the shape of Marais.
Suggested Bet: Warriors to win at 9/10
