DOL vs KTS Dream11 Prediction, Momentum One Day Cup 2020, Match 2: Preview, Pitch Report, Probable XI, Top Picks & Best Dream11 Teams

DOL vs KTS Dream11 Prediction: The Dolphins and the Knights will be starting their Momentum One Day Cup 2020 campaign against each other. The tournament is pretty fast-paced and getting off to a fast start is very important. Teams can bounce back but a couple of defeats early on can really pile up the pressure.

The Dolphins have some very decent players to pick from to start the tournament. The batting is going to be led by Vaughn van Jaarsveld, Sarel Erwee, and Khaya Zondo. All three of these batsmen have been regular performers in South African domestic cricket and will be hoping to continue leading from the front. Dolphins were the runners-up in the past edition of Momentum One Day tournament and would vie to get their hands into the much-coveted title in the coming season.

The Knights appear to be a bit light in terms of talent and depth in the squad at first glance. Keegan Petersen, Petrus Biljon, and Patrick Kruger are some of the names that are going to lead the batting unit for the Knights.

There are three decent all-rounders in the squad which will help add some depth to the side but overall the batting looks to be out-matched in comparison to the Dolphins. The same could be said for the bowling department and thus, the Knights would have to put in a herculean effort in order to outwit an experienced Dolphins at Kingsmead.
