Warriors will host Knights in this match at Buffalo Park, East London. Warriors and Knights will collide for the second time this season in the 22nd match of Momentum One-day Cup. The Knights are the only side in the Momentum Cup 2019 that is still looking for a win. Warriors had won 4 out of 7 matches and are placed 2nd in the points table. The current form of both teams suggests, Warriors have a clear upper hand over their counterparts and will look to maintain their winning streak over them. The Knights will be hoping for something special to get at least something out of this wretched season of theirs. The Warriors are coming on the back of defeats in their last two matches and so they will be desperate for a win.
Warriors Team: Cloete, Nyaku, Moore, Breetzke, Ngoepe, Smuts, Vallie, Walters, Qeshile, Marais, Sipamla, Kaber, Magala, Birch
Knights Team: P Kruger, A Gous, K Petersen, P Van Biljon, R Second, G Mokoena, R Van Tonder, R Mclaren, M De Lange, M Budaza, T Ntuli, O Baartman, E Leie
Warriors: Gihahn Cloete, Matthew Breetzke, JJ Smuts (c), Ngoepe, Sinethemba Qeshile, Marco Marais, Yaseen Vallie, Andrew Birch, Sisanda Magala, Lutho Sipamla, Glenton Stuurman
Knights: Grant Mokoena, Andries Gous, Keegan Petersen, Petrus van Biljon (c), Rudi Second (wk), Patrick Kruger, Ryan McLaren, Marchant de Lange, Eddie Leie, Ottniel Baartman, Tshepo Ntuli/Budaza
Pitch and Weather: The pitch is usually excellent for batting at Buffalo Park. The weather can be rainy which can ruin the match.
Wicket-keeper: Rudi Second, Qeshile and A Gous all are good options in this section. I prefer A Gous over others as he is playing as an opener for the team so he has a slight edge over them. The other two are also good options to pick.
Batsman: I will pick only 3 batsmen as there are not reliable batsman in this game. Cloete and K Petersen are the elite picks in this section. For the last pick, we have Breetzke, Petrus van Biljon, and Ngoepe to pick from. I am leaned towards Breetzke as he is performing better.
All Rounders: Again we don’t have any decent option in this section. Smuts and Mclaren are locks and elite picks in this section as there are no other choices. Kruger is another viable option in this section.
Bowlers: We have a lot of options in this section and I am going with 5 bowlers in this game. From Warriors side, Magala, Birch, and Sipamla are the best choices and I am picking all three of them. From Knights, E Leie and M De Lange are the safest picks but you can pick M Budaza or O Baartman or Stuurman from Warriors as well according to your choice.
