Dolphins will host Titans in this match at Kingsmead, Durban. Dolphins and Titans both had played very well throughout the tournament. Dolphin is placed at 3rd place in the points table while Titans are at the very top. Titans had won 5 out of 7 games while on the other side Dolphins had won 4 out of 6 games. This would be the 2nd time when these two teams will face off in this series of Momentum one-day cup. Their previous battle took place at the SuperSport Park in Centurion which saw Dolphins taming the table-toppers by 12 runs. Titans have more strength in their bowling department than Dolphins who don’t have many experienced bowlers in their side. Both teams will try their best to win this game and we may see an exciting match.

Pitch and Weather: The Kingsmead in Durban has something for bowlers with the new ball. The first batting team usually fall short of a winning total, especially under the lights. Each of the previous five completed One-Day matches has been won by the chasing sides.
Wicket-keeper: We have two options in this section i.e Klaasen and Vilas. Vilas is much better then Klaasen in this spot as he will bat one down in the absence of Van wyk.
Batsman: From Dolphins Erwee played a very good inning and scored a century in the last match so he is a good pick as Titans bowling is not that good. Dolphins will play this game in their home ground so Jaarsveld and Zondo are very good picks and you can two players from Erwee, Jaarsveld and Zondo. From Titans Vandiar, Rosier, Kuhn and Elgar are good picks and you can pick any two or three of them. Vandiar got injured in the last match and we will have to wait for playing11 for this. Rosier played very well inning in the last match and is a good pick. You can take either Kuhn or Elgar and if you are avoiding Vandiar than you can take both of them. Elgar has slightly better record than Kuhn so he is a better choice.
All Rounders: R Frylinck is again unavailable in this match so C Morris is a lock in this section and Dolphin will play one-batsman sort so its opens the opportunity for Muthusamy who can bat and ball as well so he is a very good pick in this match. Corbin Bosch can be your punt and he can be included in your Grand League team.
Bowlers: From the Titans side, Shaun von Berg is back in the squad and is a good player, J Dala took 4 wickets in the last game and is in a good form. You can pick both of them as both are good picks. From Dolphins we have only two good options i.e Savage and Maharaj. I am leaned towards Savage as he can ball in the death overs and Durban will assist bowlers so Savage is my elite and Maharaj is my secondary pick form Dolphins.
