The final of the Momentum One Day Cup 2021 will be played between Dolphins and Highveld Lions at the Senwes Park in Potchefstroom on Thursday.
Highveld Lions finished the league stage as Group B table-toppers, with wins in three of their four matches. Their semi-final against Knights got abandoned due to rain, and they entered the finals owing to their better position in the points table.
Dolphins, on the other hand, ended the league stage at the top of Group A. The defending champions got to play only two games in the group stage, as the rest of their league games were affected due to rain.
Dolphins defeated Cape Cobras by three wickets in the first semi-final to enter the summit clash.
An edge of the seat thriller will be on the cards when the Dolphins take on Highveld Lions in the championship game on Thursday.

The pitch at the Senwes Park is a balanced one with an average first innings score of 254 runs. The overcast conditions will aid the bowlers with the new ball. Hence, batsmen will need to spend some time in the middle before shifting gears.
The team winning the toss will be looking to field first to take advantage of the overcast conditions, and also due to the possible DLS factor.
