Warriors will take on Dolphins in the eighth match of the CSA T20 challenge 2022. Both teams are looking good after playing a couple of matches apiece, so it promises to be a thrilling contest between the two sides.

Both Warriors and Dolphins have won one of their two games thus far. Dolphins are in third position due to a better net run rate, while Warriors are in sixth. Warriors won their first match by eight runs against Titans, but were beaten by seven wickets in their next game by Western Province. Dolphins, meanwhile, won their first game by eight wickets against Knights, and lost their second one against Lions by eight runs.

Both teams are coming off losses in their last matches, so they will look to get back to winning ways.

Pitch Report

The pitch at the St George’s Park has traditionally been a good wicket for batters, but it has been on the slower side this tournament, especially in day games.
