The 2023-24 season of the CSA 4-Day Series Division 1 is heading towards its final leg. In the 26th match of the series, Western Province will take on the Dolphins at Newlands. The Dolphins are sitting pretty at the top of the table while Western Province are in the fourth place. This is their chance to move up the ladder to make sure they get a place in the finals.

Western Province Preview

After six matches, Western Province find themselves in fourth place on the table with 92.5 points. They have won three matches this season, lost two, and drawn one. They are coming off a comfortable 64-run win against Warriors in Gqeberha.

Edward Moore is the team’s highest run-getter this season. The talented left-handed batsman has amassed 414 runs in 9 innings at an average of 51.75. He had missed the previous match as he made his debut in the Test against New Zealand earlier last month, but he is expected to rejoin the squad for the upcoming clash. 

Kyle Verreynne is leading from the front and has 318 runs in 6 innings this season at an average of 53.

On the bowling front, Kyle Simmonds and Beuran Hendricks have done the bulk of the work, taking 19 wickets apiece at a healthy average. Mthiwekhaya Nabe (16 wickets in 9 innings at 20.43) is another bowler worth backing.


Western Province Predicted Playing XI:

Edward Moore/Tony de Zorzi, Daniel Smith, Yaseen Vallie, Kyle Verreynne (c & wk), George Linde, Onke Nyaku, Kyle Simmonds, Beuran Hendricks, Wesley Bedja, Mthiwekhaya Nabe, Gavin Kaplan

Dolphins Preview

The Dolphins have had a fantastic season so far. They have won two matches out of six and drawn four. This performance has taken them to the top of the table with a whopping 103.52 points. 

The Dolphins are coming off a commanding 10-wicket win over North West in Potchefstroom and will be brimming with confidence. They put on 643-8 dec. in their first innings to bat the opposition out of the game. Bryce Parsons top-scored with a fabulous 191 while JJ Smuts slammed 156 off just 176 balls. Smuts has also picked up 18 wickets this season and is clearly shining in his role as an all-rounder.

The most successful batters for the Dolphins this season, though, have been MJ Ackerman (488 runs in 9 innings at 54.22) and Tshepang Dithole (426 runs in 11 innings at 47.33). You can expect some important runs from either of these two in the upcoming match.

Okuhle Cele leads the team’s bowling charts with 24 wickets in just 11 innings at an impressive average of 23. He is fresh of an 8-wicket haul in the previous match against North West.

Dolphins Predicted Playing XI:

Sarel Erwee (c), Tshepang Dithole (wk), Marques Ackerman, Bryce Parsons, Jason Smith, JJ Smuts, Andile Phehlukwayo, Prenelan Subrayen, Andile Simelane, Daryn Dupavillon, Okuhle Cele

Weather Conditions

The Cape Town pitch at Newlands Cricket Ground offers plenty of help to the fast bowlers. The first session on the first two days, in particular, will pose serious challenges to the batsmen. However, once they have negated the first session and spent some time on the wicket, there will be runs on offer.

The weather in Cape Town will be sunny and pleasant for the first three days of the match. On the fourth day, it is expected to be cloudy, which should help the seamers.


WPR vs DOL Pitch Report

The average first innings score at Newlands in Test cricket is 322. In this season of the CSA 4-Day Series Division 1, the first innings scores have been 402, 350, and 236. The team batting first in this game will be looking to set a first innings score of around 350 runs at least.

Toss: To Bowl

Two of the three matches played in Cape Town this season have been won by the team batting first.  Both teams are likely to be influenced by this stat and choose to bat first if they win the toss.

Both teams are coming off wins and will be fancying their chances in this game. However, the Dolphins appear to be a much more balanced side both in terms of bowling and batting. This wicket will suit the fast bowlers of both teams, but the Dolphins’ stronger batting unit should help them come out on top.

Back the Dolphins as the winners of this match.
