KTS vs DOL Dream11 Prediction: These are still early days in the Momentum One Day Cup, but we have already seen points table shuffle a bit. Dolphins, who started off a brilliant note, have slipped down to the third spot with other teams doing so well. They will be looking to get back to the top of the ladder with a win in their next game, which is to be played against Knights, on 14th February at Mangaung Oval.
Dolphins announced themselves in this edition of the tournament with a massive win over Knights in their first match and then followed it up with a win and loss. They are now placed at the third spot on the ladder with an excellent net run-rate of 0.735.
In their most recent encounter, against the Cobras, Dolphins faced a narrow defeat as they failed to chase down a readjusted total in a rain-inflicted encounter. Bowling first on an overcast day, Cobras’ bowlers failed to have any impact whatsoever on Dolphins as Cobras found themselves in a particularly good position after the first half. Prenelan Subrayen was their most effective bowler, but he, too, gave away runs at an economy rate of 5.8 in his ten overs. He picked up two wickets in the process.
In reply, the Dolphins got off to a fine start with Sarel Erwee and Grant Roelofsen adding 74 runs for the first wicket. Vaughn van Jaasrsveld and Khaya Zondo contributed with quick cameos to keep them afloat, but the wickets of Robbie Frylicnk and Keshav Maharaj set them back. The Dolphins eventually lost the match by a narrow margin of 5 runs.
Knights, on the other hand, have been the worst team of the tournament so far and have lost both of the two matches they have played. They are languishing at the bottom of the points table and have a ridiculously poor net run-rate of -1.565.
