The Dolphins will lock horns with the Highveld Lions in the 12th match of the CSA T20 Challenge at the Hollywoodbets Kingsmead Stadium on Wednesday.
The Dolphins are comfortably perched atop the CSA T20 Challenge standings, having won all three games they have played so far. They beat Warriors by 3 runs in their last outing.
The Highveld Lions, on the other hand, are second in the points table, with two wins from as many games. They will head into Wednesday's game on the back of a win over the Knights.
The weather forecast for the game is not too encouraging, with scattered thunderstorms predicted in the latter half of the match. Getting to witness a full game is doubtful, but fans can definitely expect a shortened match between the top two CSA T20 Challenge sides.

The pitch at the Hollywoodbets Kingsmead Stadium is a batting paradise, and the average first innings score at the venue 152 runs. As the ball comes on to the bat nicely, batsmen can play shots on the up. Meanwhile, bowlers have to be very cautious of their line and length if they are to scalp wickets. The team winning the toss will be looking to field first as the chasing sides have won the majority of the games played on this ground.
