The Rocks will take on the Knights in the 26th match of the CSA T20 Challenge 2022. The game will be played at St George's Park in Port Elizabeth.

The Knights, led by Pite van Biljon, have nothing but pride to play for after being knocked out of the competition. With four points and a net run rate of -1.307, their campaign has been disastrous.

The Knights lost to the Lions by five wickets in their previous game. After opting to bat first, the Knights scored only 127 for the loss of eight wickets. Jacques Snyman top-scored for them with a 27-ball knock of 39. The Lions thereafter chased the target down with five balls left after Mitchell Van Buuren's unbeaten 55-ball 67.

The Rocks, led by Pieter Malan, meanwhile, are placed third in the table with 17 points and a net run rate of 0.270. Unless the Dolphins and North West miraculously topple them, they are mostly through to the semi-finals of the tournament.
