The 10th match of the South African One-Day Cup 2022 will see the Lions (LIO) take on the Knights (KTS) at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein on Wednesday.
Despite losing their previous game to the Western Province, the Lions are one of the teams to beat in the competition. Blessed with a resourceful roster, the Lions will start as the clear favorites. The Knights, meanwhile, are yet to register their first win in the competition. However, they have a good blend of youth and experience in their side and will bank on the likes of Farhaan Berhadien and Migael Pretorius to come good. With valuable points on offer, an entertaining game beckons in Bloemfontein.

KTS vs LIO, South Africa One-Cup 2022, Match 10
Date and Time: 16th March 2022, 4:30 PM IST
Venue: Manguang Oval, Bloemfontein
A good batting track awaits the two sides with little help on offer for the bowlers. Although the pacers might get some swing and bounce early on, the batters should enjoy the ball skidding on to the bat. There is not much turn on offer for the spinners, who will need to vary their pace accordingly. Wickets in hand will be key, with both teams likely to prefer chasing upon winning the toss.
Today’s KTS vs LIO Dream11 match top picks
Ryan Rickelton: Ryan Rickelton didn't have the best of starts to his CSA One-Day Challenge campaign, but remains one of the Lions' best bets with the bat. Rickelton has a knack for scoring quick runs at the top of the order. With the conditions playing into this hands, he is one to watch out for in this game.
Farhaan Behardien: Farhaan Behardien is one of the best batters in the competition with his numbers speaking for itself. Despite Behardien no longer in the conversation for a national call-up, he has been in decent form with the bat. Given his experience, Behardien should be a good addition to your KTS vs LIO Dream11 fantasy team.
Wiaan Mulder: Wiaan Mulder had a game to forget in the previous game, being hit for a match-winning six by tailender Beuran Hendricks off the final ball. Despite the disappointment, Mulder is one of the best all-rounders in the competition. He is due for a big score with the bat in hand, making him a must-have in your KTS vs LIO Dream11 fantasy team.
Migael Pretorius: Migael Pretorius has had an impressive year or two in white-ball cricket, having played in several franchise leagues as well. Pretorius is better known for his death-bowling skills, but he can be backed to deliver the goods with the bat as well.
