Dolphins defeated Warriors by a big margin of 54 runs and got five points after they were let down by Lions in the first game. Cape Cobras made a sparkling beginning of the event while beating Titans in their opening match by 14 runs and will take over Dolphins in the forthcoming encounter. Both teams are handicapped by their key players since quite a few of them got selected in the national squad which is presently touring Australia to take part in the limited overs matches.
Jean-Paul Duminy, Robin Peterson, Hashim Amla, Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander of Cape Cobras are currently visiting Australia to represent the South African side. Richard Levi powered 81 off 34 mere deliveries against Titans in the previous game and Kieron Pollard smashed unbeaten 72 from 36 balls. Andrew Puttick, Omphile Ramela, Dane Vilas and Justin Ontong are capable of scoring brisk runs. Pollard was the most successful bowler and grabbed three wickets, Dane Paterson held one while Mthokozisi Shezi, Sybrand Engelbrecht and Lizaad William are match winning bowlers.
Vaughn van Jaarsveld scored an unbeaten fifty in the last match for Dolphins vs. Warriors, Dwayne Bravo got 43 and they expect competency from Morne van Wyk, Cameron Delport and Khaya Zondo. Craig Alexander grabbed four wickets, Rabian Engelbrecht and Robbie Frylinck added two to their record whereas Sibonelo Makhanya can be transformed into an attacking bowler.
