Momentum One Day Trophy
Match 5: Knights vs Warriors
Friday, February 7
KNI vs WAR Preview:
This will be the fifth match of this series. Lot of players miss out due to international duty. The Warriors look like a fantastic side on paper with Rudi Second, Qeshile, Breetzke and Cloete in their side. They lost their previous game against the Cobras by 31 runs in a rain hit game. We are still in the early stage of the tournament and the Warriors will be keen to turn around their fortunes. Meanwhile the Knights look like the weakest side of the tournament. They don’thave a lot of big names in their side. They lost the previous game by 91 runs margin. One can go with a 7-4 combination favoring Warriors in this game.
The games in this tournament have seen both low and high scoring games and it is quite difficult to predict the nature of the pitch.
The weather is expected to be cloudy with temperature around 28-degree Celsius. There are 100% possibilities of rain halting play which is not a good sign.
No injury updates yet.
