Although only a handful of games have passed by, the Cape Cobras and Knights find themselves at the bottom of the table with a win on Tuesday crucial for both parties in their fight to make it to the semi-finals.
Both teams lost their opening fixtures with the likes of Kyle Verreynne and Keegan Petersen amongst the bright spots for either side.
With the match set to take place in Bloemfontein, a competitive wicket is in store promising another cracker of a game in the Momentum One Day Cup 2019.
Squads to choose from
Pite van Biljon, Ottneil Baartman, Mbulelo Budaza, Corne Dry, Andries Gous, Eddie Leie, Ryan McLaren, Patrick Kruger, Luthando Mnyanda, Grant Mokoena, Tshepo Ntuli, Duanne Olivier, Keegan Petersen, Zak Qwabe, Rudi Second, Shadley van Schalkwyk, Raynard van Tonder.
Dane Piedt, David Bedingham, Tladi Bokako, Isaac Dikgale, Jean-Paul Duminy, Zubayr Hamza, George Linde, Janneman Malan, Pieter Malan, Akhona Mnyaka, Dane Paterson, Jason Smith, Kyle Verreynne
Playing XI Updates
With only one of their two matches being completed, not many changes are expected of the Knights. Marchant de Lange is available for selection and should slot in for Ntuli to provide a wicket-taking option with the new ball.
Keegan Petersen and Pite van Biljon are key to the Knights' chances of putting a big score while Ryan McLaren's all-round performances are bound to have a say in the match
Possible XI: Gous, Mokoena, Petersen, Biljon(C), Second(WK), Synman, McLaren, De Lange, Budaza, Schalkwyk and Kruger.
JP Duminy and Nabe aren't fit enough to be available for selection on Tuesday while George Linde should shrug off his injury concerns.
The presence of talented but inexperienced batsmen such as Zubayr Hamza, Janneman Malan and Kyle Verreynne will be key with their daredevil attitude while all-rounder Jason Smith's performance with bat and ball should bring in much-needed balance to the side.
Possible XI: Pieter Malan, Janneman Malan, Hamza, Smith, Verreynne (WK), Dikgale, Linde, Piedt(C), Paterson, Bokako and Mnyaka

Fantasy Tips and Suggestions
Kyle Verreynne has been in great form with a fifty in the first match backing his brilliant show in the domestic four-day competition.
He is the ideal player to have in this slot although Rudi Second isn't a bad option. Second has been a consistent performer for the Knights but his poor form could be a major put off.
Keegan Petersen started the tournament in great fashion as he scored a fighting hundred. Along with him, Janneman Malan and Zubayr Hamza, both of whom made their South Africa debuts recently are great options to have in the side.
The likes of Andries Gous and Pete van Biljon are also in decent form and could be more than decent selections.
Ryan McLaren and Jason Smith are the perfect all-rounders to have with their ability with both bat and ball evident in the previous round of games.
George Linde is another option who could slot in for Smith with the pitch touted to be on the slower side.
Marchant de Lange is available for this match and along with Dane Paterson, he is a must-have in the side.
Tladi Bokako and Mbulelo Budaza are also a great option to have in the side while Dane Piedt's incisive spin bowling should be backed for this contest.
Jason Smith holds the key for the Cobras with the all-rounder consistently performing for them in the top order.
His performance with the ball in the first game also holds him in high regards and should be the ideal option along with Pete van Biljon and Zubayr Hamza.
