South Africa Under-19 are up against the Dolphins in Match 23 of the CSA Provincial T20 Cup at Mangaung Oval on Sunday.
South Africa Under-19 crashed to a second successive defeat in the CSA Provincial T20 Cup against the North West Dragons. A modest total of 142 proved to be way too difficult for them to chase down. It was a complete batting collapse as they were skittled out for a paltry 99. The 43-run defeat was a tough loss and it will be difficult for them to bounce back from this.
On the other hand, the Dolphins continued their fine form. They registered yet another victory in the CSA Provincial T20 Cup, this time over Eastern Storm. The Dolphins bowled well to restrict Eastern to 147/8 in the second innings. Earlier, they set a target of 156 runs, which they eventually defended by eight runs.
South Africa Under-19 have suffered two defeats while the Dolphins come into this contest on the back of consecutive wins in this CSA Provincial T20 Cup clash.
