Dolphins vs Cape Cobras Prediction
Dolphins host the Cape Cobras in the Momentum One-day Cup on Saturday in Pietermaritzburg, aiming to continue their good form in the tournament and Cobras hoping to bounce back from their struggling run of form in the Momentum One Day Cup.
Dolphins are in superb form this season having won four out of five games in the tournament, placing them just behind the Warriors (18) at the top, with 16 points. The Dolphins made a good comeback from their defeat to the Warriors by defeating the Knights last weekend. The team made an impressive 22-run victory by DLS Method in Kingsmead over the Knights with the help of Robbie Frylinck and Sarel Erwee.
Cape Cobras are on a struggling run of form so far in the competition having won only two out of five matches played this season, the pressure to deliver in the coming game would be more onto the shoulders of Duminy. The team are placed fourth in the League table with 12 points. The Cape Cobras heads into this game with a thrilling three-run win over Lions in Johannesburg thanks to brilliant death bowling by Akhona Mnyaka.
Dolphins will come in with plenty of confidence following their impressive showing in the tournament. The team have been the favorites through-out the season, but considering the home advantage, past performances and scoring abilities of Dolphins, even if they lost to Warriors last start, we predict Dolphins will come out as a winner in the end.

Knights vs Lions Prediction
Knights will take on Highveld Lions in the Momentum One-day Cup on Saturday in Bloemfontein aiming for an elusive first victory in the tournament.
Both teams are in bad shape this season with the Knights have failed to win any of their opening five games and have earned only 2 points out of their 5 games and the Lions have emerged victorious only once so far in the tournament having earned just 8 points from their last 7 games.
Knights heads into this game with a 22-run defeat by DLS method to Dolphins despite Rudi Second’s 74 runs, while Lions lost the game against Cape Cobras by three runs in the Momentum One-Day Cup on Thursday, with the Lions needed just seven runs to win off the last over of the game, Akhona Mnyaka took three wickets in the last over to secure an epic three-run win for the Cobras.
Lions will hold an edge over Knights with Lions finishing top of the table in the 2018/19 4-Day Domestic Series having won 7 games out of 10 played in the tournament and have also defeated Knights by 5 wickets in the 4-day series. We predict Lions are strong favorites to win this game here.
