Momentum One Day Cup 2019: Match 16, Warriors vs Titans: Dream11 Prediction, Playing XI Updates & Fantasy Cricket Tips - March 3rd, 2019
While Qeshile was at his best as he slammed a dominant hundred against the Lions, it was the Markram show as he combined with Farhaan Behardien to post the highest seventh wicket partnership in List A history to guide the Titans to a famous win.
With four crucial points at stake here, the Warriors will look to maintain their unbeaten run against a formidable Titans side boasting the likes of Chris Morris and Dean Elgar.
Squads to choose from:
Gihahn Cloete, Sisanda Magala, Yaseen Vallie, Sinethemba Qeshile, JJ Smuts, Christiaan Jonker, Onke Nyaku, Thomas Kaber, Lutho Sipamla, Andrew Birch, Marco Marais, Sithembile Langa, Matthew Breetzke, Anrich Nortje, Ayabulela Gqamane, Basheeru-Deen Walters, Clyde Fortuin, Colin Ackermann, Lesiba Ngoepe, Glenton Stuurman
Heinrich Klaasen, Tony de Zorzi, Jonathan Vandiar, Henry Davids, Heino Kuhn, Chris Morris, Grant Thomson, Farhaan Behardien, Tshepo Moreki, Junior Dala, Shaun von Berg, Eldred Hawken, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi, Aiden Markram, Imran Manack, Gregory Mahlokwana, Theunis de Bruyn, Dean Elgar.
Playing XI Updates:
No changes are expected of the Warriors, who are sitting pretty at the top of the league table with four wins out of five matches. All-rounders Ackermann and Smuts have been pivotal to their success along with their pace heavy bowling attack.
Sisanda Magala, Andrew Birch and Lutho Sipalma have excelled with seven wickets a piece and will pose a stern test for the likes of Elgar, Markram and Klaasen.
Possible XI: Breetzke, Cloete, Smuts(C), Ngoepe, Ackermann, Qeshile(WK), Marais, Nyaku, Magala, Birch and Sipalma.
Like their opponents on Sunday, the Titans are also not expected to make any changes, although better performances are expected from their top order after consecutive failures. Tony de Zorzi and Theunis de Bruyn have been lacklustre, while Vandiar could face the axe, with Henry Davids and Heino Kuhn waiting on the sidelines.
Aiden Markram could also prove to be a viable option at the top of the other after a sensational hundred in the previous game. The bowling unit depends heavily on Morris and Dala, with the rest of team fairly inexperienced.
Possible XI: Vandiar/Davids, de Zorzi, de Bruyn, Elgar, Markram, Klaasen(C&WK), Behardien, Morris, Dala, Moreki and Mahlokwana.

Fantasy Tips and Suggestions:
Wicket-keeper: Both Klaasen and Qeshile have runs behind their backs and are in good form heading into this match. Either of them would be great for the fantasy team although Klaasen might get the nod considering the fragility of the top order.
Batsmen: Aiden Markram is in brilliant form and shouldn't be ignored, along with Gihahn Cloete and Theunis de Bruyn. All of them have experience playing for the national side and are marquee players for their respective sides. Along with the them, one of Ngoepe or Edward Moore could prove to be a handy option.
All-rounders: Jon-Jon Smuts is in good form with bat and ball, making him a must have player in the side, along with Chris Morris. In the absence of Dala and Shamsi, Morris is the Titans' go-to bowlers and should pick a wicket or two on Sunday.
Bowlers: Junior Dala, Sisanda Magala and Lutho Sipalma are must haves in the side, with the likes of Moreki and Birch also amongst the other options. Spinner Mahlokwana is also a good option to have instead of Moreki.
Captain: Aiden Markram looks good to continue his rich vein of form and could be picked as captain along with the usual suspects, JJ Smuts and Gihahn Cloete. Theunis de Bruyn is also a handy option to have with his ability known to one and all.
