CSA T20 Challenge is heating up with every match with the qualification scenarios changing after every match. Knights and Rocks are currently fighting hard at the top of the points table. Knights have won their only completed match with a bonus point and their remaining two matches are washed out with teams sharing them. Rocks cruised along to victory in their second match on a trot last night and have climbed to the second spot in points table.
Knights lost their top order cheaply and were struggling at 24/2 at the end of 4 overs. Patrick Kruger played a counterattacking knock of 60 runs off 36 balls with wickets falling around him. Van Tonder played a stabilizing cameo of run-a-ball 27 runs while Gerald Coetzee played a blinder scoring 26 runs off 11 balls. They took their score to 158/9 in their 20 overs.
Their bowlers restricted the opposition to 134/9 & 116-all out in the 2 games so far. Swanepoel was their best bowler with figures of 3/27 & 3/24. Gerald Coetzee helped their team win with a spell of 4/22 in the last game. Snyman, Alfred Mothea, Budaza, and M Pretorius chipped in with crucial wickets and helped their team in middle overs.

Rocks top order were brushed away to 15/3 very early in the match. Farhann Behardien then brought all his experience into play scoring a valiant 63 runs off 51 balls to take his team to a decent score of 121/8 in their 20 overs on a tricky surface. B Fortuin gave him good company with a cameo of 29 runs while no other batter scored in double digits.
Their bowlers aced the crunch situation to win the match by 4 runs as per DLS equation. B Xenxe was the best bowler on park with figures of 3-0-20-3. Hardus Viljoin picked up 2 crucial wickets but went for 35 runs in his 4 overs. The trio of Ferisco Adams, Shaun von berg, and Imran Manack bowled very economically and they defended just 198 runs off last 3 overs to win by 4 runs.

The pitch has started to do a few uneven bounce and turn as many matches are already played on these surfaces already. The weather has become sunny and clear with rains over the past week clearing out.
Potchefstroom is the only venue where the matches are being played this year. We expect the average score in this match to be around 160-170 runs.
Both captains might opt to bat first on this pitch with slowness creeping in owing to the used nature. Chasing will become difficult on this pitch.
Knights have a strong batting unit and they have hugely untested this year barring the last game. Their bowling has been top notch and very consistent so far. Rocks have a strong batting line up with experienced players but are struggling for consistency with up and downs so far. We expect Knights to continue their unbeaten run in this match too.
Knights will win the match
