KN vs WAR Match Prediction - Dec 11, 2022

Both, the Knights as well as the Warriors, will be searching for their first win of the season, as they face each other on Sunday in the ongoing edition of the CSA Provincial One-Day Challenge.Both the teams had finished in the bottom half of the points table in the previous season too, and going by their current form, that could very well be the case once more. Let’s have a look at how both teams line up. 


KN vs WAR Team Previews


The Knights currently sit at the bottom of the points table after suffering heavy defeats in both its opening matches. With a terrible NRR, the team has no option but to collect as many points as possible from the next few matches to move up on the points table.

Captain Pite van Biljon, Raynard van Tonder, and Jacques Snyman were some of the top batsmen in the last season, but have failed to fire this time around. Much will depend on their form going forward if the Knights would be hoping to salvage their position.

Alfred Mothoa has played just once, but he bowled a good spell in the match against North West, while Migael Pretorius is the top wicket-taker in the squad with 5 wickets. However, other than these two, none of the bowlers have been able to have a significant impact and have been taken to the cleaners by the opposition batsmen.

With just 4 matches to go after this game, the time is running out quickly for the Knights.

The Warriors played their opening match against the North West Dragons and came tantalizingly close to a victory. Chasing a target of 285, the team suffered a mini-collapse in the middle order. However, Tristan Stubbs and Lesiba Ngoepe played exceedingly well to get their team close to the target, but in the end, fell short by 2 runs. Their second match against the Titans was a close affair too, but they ended up on the losing side.

Opening batsman Jordan Hermann looks to be in good touch, as he has scored half-centuries in both games so far. However, he has failed to receive support from the likes of Wihan Lubbe, Sinethemba Qeshile, and Matthew Breetzke. However, Tristan Stubbs appears to be in superb form and has received excellent support from Lesiba Ngoepe.

Stubbs is the top-scorer for his team with 144 runs and has also picked up 1 wicket. Beyers Swanepoel and Ziyaad Abrahams have picked up 5 wickets each. The squad however looks a bit incomplete, as JJ Smuts and Tiaan vs Vuuren are missing this time around.

KN vs WAR Toss Prediction

The record is pretty even when it comes to the success rate of teams batting first or second. However, we feel that batting first would be a better option as the pitch tends to slow down a bit.

Pitch and Conditions

The track at the Mangaung Oval is a good one to bat on, especially early on in the match. The bounce is good and the ball tends to come nicely onto the bat. The quicker bowlers too will enjoy the consistent bounce. However, as the game progresses, the pitch is likely to slow down and will becomes a bit difficult to play shots.

The average first innings score here is around 240 and can be considered to be a par score. The weather is likely to be heavily overcast, and we are very likely to see some delays and interruptions due to rain. 


KN vs WAR Betting Tips

We are backing the Warriors to win this match. The batsmen, barring a few, look in good form and are likely to score big against the average bowling of the Knights. Ziyaad Abrahams and Beyers Swanepoel have bowled some good spells and will be quite effective against the underperforming batting line-up of the Knights.

As for the Knights, they simply haven’t been up to the task so far, and are likely to keep struggling in this match too.

Bet on a Warriors win.
