Warriors vs Dolphins, CSA T20 Challenge 2021
Dolphins will continue their winning run when they take on Warriors in the 6th match of the CSA T-20 series. The match will be played at the Kingsmead Durban and is set to get underway at 2:00 PM.
We expected Warriors to struggle against the Lions, and they did. They weren’t extremely poor, but they need to deliver better performance to win against sides like the Dolphins.
The lower middle-order consists of Sinethemba, Wiaan Lubbe, Marco Marais have shown that they’re capable of scoring runs when required, which is a good sign. However, the Warriors will need a good start to get themselves to a decent total.
Someone like JJ Smuts has to play a big role. The bowling in the last match wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good either. They’ll need to bowl better to stop a strong batting lineup of Dolphins.
Two wins in two games have got the Dolphins into a perfect position. They’ll be looking to make it 3 in 3 against Warriors. Khaya Zondo has been brilliant in the two matches. Miller also got some runs for his team.
Sarel Erwee, Roelofsen, Senuran Muthuswami form a strong batting. In the bowling department, Keshav Maharaj and Prenalan Subrayen have been their two best bowlers. Other bowlers like Robert Frylink, Kerwin Mungroo have also bowled well. We think of Dolphins as an excellent side and expect them to win the match.

JJ Smuts, Marco Marais, and Wiaan Lubbe are the three batsmen to watch out from Warriors. Smuts is a renowned T20 player and has played all around the world. Both the other batsmen looked good in the last match. They just need to play longer innings.
For Dolphins, David Miller, Khaya Zondo, and Sarel Erwee are the three top players. Zondo has batted well in both matches while Miller can be destructive on his day. Sarel Erwee has also performed well in SA domestic cricket.

Anrich Nortje, Glenton Stuurman, and Marco Jensen are the best options to bet. Nortje is a class bowler and we expect him to perform well in the next game. Jensen was very economical in the last game which was crucial as it helped the other bowlers to attack the batsmen. Stuurman also has a reputation for being a top bowler.
Keshav Maharaj, Robert Frylink, and Andile Phehlukwayo are the top bets from Dolphins. Maharaj picked up 6 wickets in the two matches while Frylink was spot on with his line and lengths. P Subrayen can also be a handy bowler.
Warriors vs Dolphins Match Prediction
Dolphins are coming back from two back-to-back wins and have played good cricket. Their batting is also much stronger than the Warriors. For us, Dolphins are the favorites.
