The Warriors will be taking on the North West in the 28th game of the CSA T20 Challenge 2022. It will be an important game for both sides and can decide their fate for the season. The Warriors won the last game against the Lions to keep their hopes alive for the season. The North West on the other hand lost against the Titans. 

The North West have lost the last four games in a row and they would have their confidence low. Their bowlers have looked in poor shape in most of these games and it will be important for them to strike form. Warriors have also struggled and it will be interesting to see if they can win this game and make it to the next round.

Warriors Preview

Sinethemba Qeshile’s side has kept its hopes of reaching the semifinal with their win against the Lions in the last game. They ended their four-game losing spree to win the last game by 5 wickets. Their bowlers did well and batsmen also chased the score clinically. They will need to win by a big margin here and hope other results work in their favor to qualify for the next round. 

Wihan Lubbe did well in the last game and he would have to provide a solid start opening alongside Matthew Breetzke who also has good striking abilities. Lesiba Ngoepe played a good knock in the last game and he must do well in the middle order along with JJ Smuts and Tristan Stubbs. The side would also like to see good hitting from Diego Rosier and Qeshile in this game. 

Smuts has done well with the ball this season and the side would like to see early wickets from him. Tsepo Ndwandwa and Lubbe regained their form in the last game which is welcome news for the side. In Akhona Mnyaka, Lizo Makho, and Dane Paterson the side has variety in its attack and shall hope to see good spells from them in this game.

Warriors Predicted Playing XI:

Sinethemba Qeshile (c & wk), Wihan Lubbe, Matthew Breetzke, JJ Smuts, Tristan Stubbs, Lesiba Ngoepe, Diego Rosier, Dane Paterson, Akhona Mnyaka, Tsepo Ndwandwa, Lizo Makhosi

North West Preview

After a brilliant start that saw them winning the first two games, it has been a downhill ride for Nicky van den Bergh’s side. They come here with four consecutive losses. They battled and bowled poorly in the last game against Titans to go down by 33 runs. Skipper van den Bergh would hope to see better performance from his players in this game. 

Wesley Marshall and Heino Kuhn haven’t been in good form and they must do well at the top for the side to win. Lesego Senokwane has done well and he would have to add runs in the middle order with Dwaine Pretorius and Senuran Muthusamy. Nono Pongolo and Senuran Muthusamy must add quick runs to the scoreboard in the final overs of the innings. 

 Johannes Diseko and Eldred Hawken bowled poor lines in the last game and they must get early wickets with the new ball. Muthusamy has done well and he needs to keep scoring under check in the middle overs with Caleb Selek and Chad Classen. Pretorius and Pongolo will be tasked with playing the role of a 5th bowler well.

North West Predicted Playing XI:

Nicky van den Bergh (c & wk), Wesley Marshall, Senuran Muthusamy, Dwaine Pretorius, Delano Potgieter, Lesego Senokwane, Taheer Isaacs, Nono Pongolo, Duan Jansen, Caleb Seleka, Johannes Diseko

Weather Conditions

The skies over Port Elizabeth would be slightly overcast on February 23 and batting conditions are expected to be tough. The wicket has flattened out a bit but the bowlers are enjoying good returns from the surface. The side batting first in this game would be happy with a score of 160 runs.

Venue Details

St George's Park, Port Elizabeth has a quick surface and we have always seen fast bowlers do well on this track. The ball however comes onto the bat nicely and allows batsmen to play their strokes. Spinners don’t get much from the surface and they have to depend on their variations.

Toss: To Bowl

10 games out of 25 played have been won by sides batting first. The conditions have been difficult for the batsmen in the series. Bowlers have done well in the early overs of the game and hence the side winning the toss here would have little hesitation in opting to bowl first.

Both sides have played poorly but four losses in a row have hurt the confidence in the North West camp. Their batsmen have looked in poor shape and the side would have to make adjustments in this area to win this game. Warriors do have more depth in their bowling and this would put them slightly ahead in the game.
