The Dolphins got off to a great start in the Momentum One-Day Cup 2019 with a hat-trick of wins and were cruising through with four wins after five matches. However, the Dolphins suffered a little slump from the 2nd week of March as they lost each of their previous three games. The Dolphins are still one win away from sealing their semi-final berth and have got two games left in their hand for that.

They will be now up against the Warriors in their penultimate game of the league stage in Port Elizabeth. The Warriors also have got four wins from eight matches like the Dolphins and Cape Cobras but have two points more than the both due to a washed out fixture. With the Knights catching up some form lately, both Warriors and Dolphins will hope to get the win that will take them through.
