CSA T20 challenge is up and running with teams fighting it hard for the crucial wins. And they are also find their best combination that provides the depth and balance to their team. Rocks and lions are not having a great time in this season so far as they have just one win in 3 matches. Rocks were able to steal 4 points from the last game as they defended 9 runs and won in super over in last over despite 2 set batsmen. Lions are in a roller-coaster ride and will be looking to build some crucial momentum ahead of this match.
Pieter Malan build the platform with his 53 runs off 46 balls at the top for Rocks in the last game. Janneman Malan (33 runs), Jonker (37 runs), and Viljoen (19 runs) upped the scoring rate in different positions and took their team total to 182 runs in the match. Michael Copeland too is in good form but was unluckily run-out in this match.
Their bowling unit put on a brave fight and won the match in the super over. Imran Manack and Siyabonga Mahima picked up a wicket each and gave runs at less than 7 RPO. Ferisco Adams bowled the crucial final over and then the super over to help his team win the match. They lack the wicket-taking abilities and will need to improve on it in this match.

Lions middle order trio of Dadswell (27 runs), Van Buuren (42 runs), and Kagiso Rapulana (36 runs) steadied the innings after the quick fall of the openers.

Port Elizabeth will have a bright and sunny weather on the match day with just no chances of precipitation. We expect a full match with no weather interruptions.
Port Elizabeth is expected to be slow down as the tournament progresses and batters will struggle to time the ball effectively. Batters will struggle score freely until they are settled on this pitch. We expect the average scores to be around 140-160 runs on this pitch.
Both teams won their last game batting first and will look to continue the trend in this match by batting first if they win the toss.
Both teams have a slightly inconsistent batting line-up but Rocks have scored 180+ runs in the last game which will give huge confidence going forward. But Rocks bowler’s lack the X-factor and have struggled to take wickets. Lions are better in terms of the bowling department and it will give a huge edge in this contest. We expect Lions to win this match.
