It’s finally time for the summit clash of the CSA Provincial T20 Cup 2021, which will see the Dolphins lock horns with the Knights. The match will be played at Diamond Oval in Kimberley and promises to be a cracker of a contest as both sides look strong on paper.

The Dolphins have been sensational in the competition so far and are yet to lose a single game. After topping Pool C, they defeated the Warriors in the quarter-final and followed it up with a win over the Titans to enter the final.

It was a solid performance from the Dolphins in the semi-final. The bowlers bowled brilliantly to knock over the Titans for just 138. The batters struggled a bit in the chase but Khaya Zondo's unbeaten 58 led his side across the line. The Dolphins' bowlers have done a fantastic job so far and will be looking to produce more of the same in the final of the competition.

The Knights finished the group stages at the top of the table in Pool B and qualified for the knockout stages. They defeated Western Province in a close-fought contest and faced North West in the second semi-final. Rain played spoilsport as no result was possible and the Knights qualified for the finals thanks to their superior position at the end of the group stages.

The batters put on a disappointing show as they could only score 127 for the Knights in 19 overs, losing seven wickets. The North West openers got off to a flying start as they scored 42 runs in 2.3 overs before the rain arrived and washed out the game. It was a lucky escape for the Knights and they will be looking for a better performance in the final on Friday.
