Match Details:

The 18th match of the Momentum One-Day Cup 2020 will be played between Dolphins and Titans at the Kingsmead in Durban.

The match starts at 1:30 PM local time (11:30 AM GMT) (5:00 PM IST).

Preview:

Dolphins are performing in great form due to their players’ performances. They have won three back to back games and are leading the points table with 22 points. It will be interesting to watch if they can extend their winning streak to four.

In batting, they have Sarel Erwee and Grant Roelofsen, who have emerged as the best pair of openers in Momentum Cup 2020. On the other hand, their bowling unit has done an impressive job so far in the tournament. Daryn Dupavillon and Keshav Maharaj have managed to restrict opponents by taking their wickets at regular intervals.

Titans have also regained their momentum after suffering in their first two games. At the moment they have registered two consecutive wins and will be aiming to outclass the in-form side of Dolphins. If they managed to replicate their form successfully in the upcoming match then the chances are high that they might pull off a clinical win.
