KN vs NWEST Match Preview

Knights have already succeeded in qualifying for the semi-final stages of the competition. They have a couple of victories, one loss, and as many as 3 no-result games thus far. However, the team will be keen to develop some momentum in this game as they look forward to the knockout stage of the competition. the North West Dragons team on the other hand is reeling at the bottom of the points tally. They were successful in winning the first game of their campaign but have suffered 5 losses in a row since then. Both these teams have some high-quality all-rounders playing for them. They have performed well consistently in the competition and they will be the top picks for this match. So, you need to watch out for players such as Senuram Muthusamy, Duan Jansen, Aubrey Swanepoel, and Jacques Snyman.

Weather Report

The weather for this match is likely to remain sunny and clear. The showers that came down in the recent past have cleared out.

Pitch Report

The wicket at the Senwes Park venue has begun to get some uneven bounces and turn. There were several games played at the venue in the recent past already. This year all the games will be played at the Potchefstroom venue. We expect an average first-inning total in this game will be close to 165 runs. A team batting first will look to reach this target to feel safe in the game while taking to the field later.

Notable stats

Jacques Snyman has a terrific record with the bat for the Knights.

Jacques Snyman has scored 308 runs from 9 matches he played in the past with a strike rate of 162.10. He has not only scored runs for his team; he has scored these runs quickly.

North West leads the head-to-head between these two sides.

North West interestingly has won the only game between the two sides played earlier that had a result.

Dream11 Prediction

The Knights are going into this game with a powerful batting order that has not been tested this year. They have a high-quality bowling attack although it was taken for runs in the last match. It is an extremely consistent bowling attack despite the drubbing it received in the last game. Northwest on the other hand has good top order and experienced players are batting in the line-up. However, many batters are struggling for consistency while playing in the middle order. We expect the Knights team to keep up their good work in this game and win the match to advance further in the competition.

Gihahn Cloete: Gihahn Cloete has done a good job with the bat for his team. In his last 6 games, he has scored 168 runs at a strike rate of 126.31. He has also held 8 catches and caused a stumping as well.
