Dolphins vs Knights Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


The Dolphins play host to the Knights in the 1st semi-final of the 2020 Momentum One Day Cup at Kingsmead in Durban on Tuesday. The Knights are in very good form with three victories in their last three matches and are backed to get into the final.

Jacques Snyman has been very consistent for the Knights this season and he looks in fantastic shape to top score for his side while Grant Roelofsen is in wonderful form for the Dolphins.

Dolphins Form


The Dolphins may have topped the Momentum One Day Cup table but their form of late has been worrying with two defeats in their last two matches.

The Dolphins have lost their last 2 fixtures. In their previous match, they were beaten by the Lions at Senwes Park by 4 wickets.

Despite the defeat Grant Roelofsen proved once again what an important player he is for the Dolphins, scoring 71 runs. That innings took his total runs for the season to 588 at an average of 65.33.

Roelofsen’s 71 was his 5th half-century of the tournament with another score of 100+ runs. I’m backing him to score 40+ runs in this clash.

Dolphins News


The Dolphins may be tempted to throw their Proteas players back into the firing line, with David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, and Keshav Maharaj all returning home from the cancelled tour of India.

Knights Form


The Knights have stepped up their game big time of late and they managed to sneak into the semi-finals in their last round robin match of the season.

Both the Titans and Knights needed to win in their encounter on Sunday at Centurion, but it was the side from Bloemfontein who emerged victorious. The Knights bowled the Titans out for just 138 runs on what was a pretty horrendous wicket at SuperSport Park in Centurion.

The Knights had struggles of their own with the bat but they managed to win by three wickets. Jacques Snyman was the pick of the batsmen scoring 35 off 19 balls.

Snyman has enjoyed a largely successful campaign in 2020, scoring 298 runs in 7 innings. In that period, he has notched a half-century and a ton, so I am looking at him to lead the fight with the bat for the Knights.

Knights News


The recent excellent run of form means the Knights are likely to stick with the side that got them to the semi-final stage.

Dolphins vs Knights Head to Head


The Dolphins won both matches against the Knights this season. The last time the sides met was on Valentine’s Day 2020 at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein. The Knights were bowled out for 134 in 39.5 overs. The Dolphins made light work of that total and reached the total to win by 6 wickets.

Dolphins vs Knights Betting Odds


The Dolphins are priced at 1.61 to win the match, while the Knights are available at 2.30.

The Dolphins’ Grant Roelofsen is available at 3.00 to score another half-century, while the Knights’ Jacques Snyman is priced at 3.75 to top score for his side.

Dolphins vs Knights Match Up


The Dolphins may have topped the Momentum One Day Cup table, but form is very important going into knockout cricket. The Knights have the upper hand in that regard, so it is going to be a tough ask for the Dolphins to match their opponent’s performance levels.
