The fans of South African cricket have been very unlucky off-late, as they have been continuously deprived the chance of watching what would have been an exciting season of the Momentum One Day Cup. The first couple of games ran smoothly, but after that, the weather gods decided to have a party.
All of the next three matches have been abandoned without a ball being bowled. As far as tomorrow’s scheduled game is concerned, it will the clash between lethal Dolphins and not-so-lethal Knights. Dolphins had an easy win against this opposition in the last game and will be aiming to do the same this time around as well.
KTS vs DOL Weather Report for Match 6:
It is quite unfortunate that there are 40% chances of precipitation during 8-10 AM, and then the rain is likely to return somewhere around 2 PM. Hence, even if we have a game, it is likely to be a rain-curtailed one.
The pitch will help the batsmen, especially in the first innings. The team batting first should ideally aim for a score of around 300.
Average first innings score:
281 (Last 2 complete matches of this tournament played on this venue)
Record of chasing teams:
Won – 0, Lost – 2, Tie – 0
