HL vs KTS Dream11 Prediction, Momentum One Day Cup 2020, Match 17: Preview, Form Guide, Probable XI, Top Picks & Best Dream11 Teams

HL vs KTS Dream11 Prediction:  The Lions and the Knights are on two opposite ends of the Momentum ODI Cup 2020 table right now. While the Lions have won three out of the four matches they have played in, the Knights have lost three out of the four completed matches they have been a part of. There was one additional match where rain did not allow a result to be achieved.

The Lions will be hoping to continue the kind of form they have shown so far while the Knights need to turn things around. Both teams come into the contest with a win in their previous matches.

Ryan Rickelton is perhaps the most important Lions player in the batting department and has been having a great season so far. A couple of innings where did not convert his start into something more significant is no cause for worry. Players like Nicky van der Bergh, Wihan Lubbe, and Delano Potgieter all need to step up the run-scoring a bit to help the Lions compensate for the loss of Reeza Hendricks.

Aaron Phangiso picked up four wickets in the previous match. He is the captain of the side and also the most experienced member of the bowling attack. Although Lions don’t have a very strong bowling unit, they have been able to keep most of their opponents in check so far.

For the Knights, Shaun von Berg, Patrick Kruger, Mbulelo Budaza, and Tshepo Ntuli are the leading bowlers. There is a decent mix of experience and upcoming talent but at this current moment, the bowling attack is not threatening enough to cause problems to the opposing batsmen consistently. Batting wise, all eyes would be Snyman for going all berserk in the much-coveted encounter.
