Knights vs Dolphins, Momentum One Day Cup – Cricket Betting Tips

The Momentum One Day Cup in South Africa has just started and the competition is bound to be much tighter this year thanks to the quality of players in every tea. Knights will take on Dolphins in a preliminary match and the odds are stacked against the Knights. Dolphins won a comfortable match against Titans even after they posted a hefty 340 in 50 overs. However, we did not get to see a full match but Dolphins made easy of a revised target of 301 runs inside a mere 42 overs. The Dolphins batting is looking quite strong at the moment.

Morne Van Vyk has been doing quite well in the domestic circuit for South Africa and he came up with another brilliant hundred to provide the perfect start to Dolphins in a steep run chase. He guided his team to an easy win in the end as 301 was no match for the batting line up of Dolphins. Van Jaarsveld gave good support in what was an almost perfect chase. However, their bowlers leaked too many runs and that will be one aspect they have to look into. Abbott went wicket less and even Imran Tahir was expensive as he took only one wicket.

Knights suffered a loss in their first game against Cape Cobras. The Cape Cobras bowlers were too good for the Knights batsmen who failed to even reach the 200 run mark. They have a chance against the Dolpins bowlers who are not in great form at the moment. However, they will have to guard against Tahir who is a world class bowler. South African batsmen are not that comfortable against spin and Tahir has wreaked havoc even on international batsmen. This is one of the reasons Dolphins have an edge over the Knights.

Hendricks and Rossouw are the main batsmen for Knights in this match. Rossouw played a good knock of fifty in the last match and he will look to continue his form. He is a limited overs specialist and could turn out to be one of the leading run scorers in this tournament. On paper, Knights do not quite match up to the Dolphins team as they lack international experience. There is not too much to write about Knights as their youngsters have to prove themselves in the competition. My money is on Dolphins to pick up their second victory in the tournament.
