Format: T20

Venue: Senwes Park, Potchefstroom, South Africa.

Time: 12:30

Titans managed a resounding win over Knights in the first semi-final of the CSA T20 Challenge for the 2022-23 season. They have secured a birth in the final of the competition and it will be their 8th appearance in a CSA T20 Challenge final. The Dolphins cricket team on the other hand has secured one victory from their four earlier appearances in the competition. Looking at their current form, they will be pretty confident about winning this game. In the second semi-final, we saw a below-average total set by Dolphins when they were asked to bat first.

Dolphins put up a score of 146 runs which was hardly a match-winning total. It wasn’t even an at-par score against the Rocks who were defending champions. But the Dolphins were to provide a superb bowling performance, especially from the bowlers such as Subrayen and JJ Smuts. This resulted in the Dolphins winning the game with a margin of 20 runs. Even the Titans team could manage an average score only while batting first in the semi-final however, there were several positives for them to achieve from the match. Their number 3 and 4 batters provided crucial partnerships to place the Titans on track for another title win.

TTN vs DOL Team Previews


The Titans team will go into this game with momentum and confidence on their side after a good victory in the semi-finals. Although Dewald Brewis appeared to be struggling at the top of the order, other middle-order batsmen stepped up for them and rose to the occasion to provide relief to their fans. The Titans captain Makhanya came into bat at the number 4 position and provided a captain’s innings with a strike rate of 132.35. This is terrific news for the prospects of the team as they were continuously struggling to find such a reliable batter in their middle order.

Titans tried many different combinations in their middle order. Now, it appears as if they have happily settled with Makhanya de Bruyn as they keep on struggling to find a reliable batter in their middle order. Jiveshan Pillay also joined the party at the top of the order. This is another positive to have come out of the match for the Titans. However, whether the Titans' lower middle order will be able to provide the finishing touches in this all-important match remains to be seen. But they are in good form and it is likely to make a difference in the end for the Titans.

One of the key batters for them in the lower middle order is Donavon Ferreira. The opponents will have to watch out for this hitter as he has delivered some good performances with the bat in the lower middle order in the recent past. Neil Brand is another all-rounder playing in the lower middle order. He is extremely handy with the bat and ball and is a significant player for the Titans' team. Brewis displayed his bowling skills in their semi-final encounter by picking up a wicket from his 3 overs giving away just 15 runs. There is plenty of variety in the bowling attack with Junior Dala, Aaron Phaginso, and Simon Harmer being the frontline bowlers for the Titans.

The Dolphins outfit finished the league stages of the competition in the number 2 position. They achieved 4 victories from their 7 games. They have managed to win all their last 4 games and are in the terrific nick. Although they are facing powerful opposition in this game, their skipper Subrayen will be backing his men to defeat the 6-time champions. The Dolphins captain can depend on his bowlers to do the job for the team as this is one department where Dolphins have done a good job and been consistent.

Some of the key bowlers for the Dolphins team are Dupavillon, JJ Smuts, Baartmand, and the skipper himself. These are all key bowlers for the Dolphins and are expected to provide timely breakthroughs for the outfit. This bowling attack was responsible for crushing the Western Province outfit a few days ago. They blew the Western Province batting order away for a paltry score of 73 runs after they were asked to bowl first in the game. Even in the semi-final, it was the bowling unit that made a win possible. 

The team's 20-run victory while defending a score of 146 runs is a massive achievement for the bowling unit. It is expected that Dolphins will provide a difficult time for the Titans' batting order. The Dolphins were not too impressive with the bat in their semi-final encounter but they managed to win their earlier two games by a huge margin of 9 wickets. Before easily chasing down a small total of 73 runs against Western Province, Dolphins chased down a score of 167 runs also with 9 wickets in hand. Keegan Petersen and Grant Roelofsen put together 106 runs for the first wicket. JJ Smuts finished off the chase with a quickfire 37 from 19 balls.

TTN vs DOL Toss Prediction

If you look at the stats you will find that there is not too much difference in the winning percentage for teams batting or bowling first at this venue. In 15 matches played during the season, the teams batting first won the game. The last six matches in a row have gone in favor of the side batting first. Both these sides are going into this game with an in-form bowling attack that can even defend small totals. So, both these teams will opt to bat first after winning the toss.

Pitch and Conditions

The Senwes Park venue in Potchefstroom has been used as the only venue for all the games during the CSA T20 Challenge for this year. In one of the recent games played at the ground, we saw both teams score in the excess of 200 runs each. As far as the semi-finals are concerned one of the teams failed to chase a mediocre total of 147 runs. These results have been pretty varying but we expect the team batting first to post a total of 170 runs to feel safe in this all-important match. The wicket on offer at the venue is a balanced surface and it offers help to both batsmen and bowlers. We have seen some terrific batting performances so far and have also seen the bowlers dominating the proceedings entirely. There are some thunderstorms expected during the game and we will get temperatures of close to 26 degrees.

TTN vs DOL Betting Tips

The Titans cricket team has won the CSA T20 Challenge title as many as 6 times. This also means that they are more accustomed to winning and have more experience in playing big games such as finals. The Dolphins were probably the only meaningful opponents for the Titans in this competition. They have won 4 matches in a row and have a bowling attack that looks good but the Dolphins pose a much tougher challenge than other sides. There is a lot of variety in the Titans' bowling attack and if the key players return to form, they will be clear favorites to win this match and lift the title. So, we will bet with the Titans to win the match.
