Knights made a crunchy beginning of the Ram Slam T20 Challenge, 2014-15 while beating Warriors by a vast margin of 74 runs and grabbed bonus point as well. Titans lost a close opening match against Cape Cobras by 14 runs even after having a perfect opening stand. They will anticipate mending their record of the previous game by winning their forthcoming encounter against Knights who will try to grasp another victory.
The skipper of Titans, Farhaan Behardien along with Marchant de Lange and David Wiese are already representing their national side in Australia. Henry Davids with Dean Elgar shared a solid first wicket partnership of 151 runs vs. Cape Cobras and both of them smashed 72 runs each. The incoming batsmen were unable to utilise it and they managed just 4-193 at the end of the 20th over while chasing 207 runs. The middle and lower order batsmen are required to concentrate on their positive batting. Dean Elgar captured three wickets, Juan de Villiers held two whereas Roelof van der Merwe, Ethy Mbhalati and Darren Sammy should bowl as required.
Dillon du Preez was the prime wicket taker with four, Shadley van Schalkwyk, Malusi Siboto and Andre Russel bowled excellently and they can be equally dangerous throughout the event. Reeza Hendricks and Rilee Rossouw have joined South African squad vs. the Kangaroos and they will be unavailable for a few games. Diego Rosier scored an unbeaten fifty for Knights against Warriors, Gerhardt Abrahams, Obus Pienaar, Rudi Second and Pite van Biljon were among runs.
