The Warriors will take on the Rocks in the 18th match of the CSA T20 Challenge 2022. The game will be played at St George's Park in Port Elizabeth.
The Warriors, captained by Sinethemba Qeshile, are yet to find their feet in the tournament. Having lost three out of four games, they are placed seventh in the points table. They are on a three-match losing streak and lost to the Knights by nine wickets in their previous game.
After opting to bat first, the Warriors scored 170 on the back of Tristan Stubbs' 35-ball knock of 65. But the Knights chased the target down in 18.4 overs. Jacques Synman scored 90 runs off 52 balls and he was well supported by CP Klijnhans, who made 67 off 54.
The Rocks, led by Pieter Malan, also have had a topsy-turvy run in the championship, although they are placed third. After two losses in a row, they got over the line in the Super Over contest against North West. But a 44-run win over the Lions should give them confidence.
After being put in to bat, the Rocks scored 160 for four after skipper Malan scored a 48-ball 71 with the help of five fours and four sixes. Thereafter, the Rocks bowled the Lions out for 116 in 17.2 overs. Shaun von Berg picked up three wickets for the Rocks.
