KTS vs NWD Match Prediction & Betting Tips, CSA T20 Challenge 2022
Knights will take on North West at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom. Match 27 of the CSA T20 Challenge gets underway at 14:30 local time on Tuesday, November 1st.
Chasing 272 for victory against Titans, Knights managed to hit 230-9 from their 20 overs on Monday. Opener Gihahn Cloete top scored with 51 runs from 32 balls with bowling all-rounder Gerald Coetzee hitting 37 runs from 11 balls. Cloete is their highest run scorer in the tournament with 168 in total.
It was a very tough afternoon in the field for Knights against Titans with their bowling attack’s economy rates ranging from 10.25 – 18.00. Migael Pretorius, Gerald Coetzee and Aubrey Swanepoel took a wicket each on Monday with Coetzee and Swanepoel level on nine dismissals for the competition.
Without the bowling of Tshepo Moreki, Western Province could well have lost their first three games by larger margins. The 29 year old right arm fast medium bowler has taken 2-24 in two of the matches and recorded figures of 1-16 in the other.
Knights have won only one of their last four games in this campaign.
Match 2 in the tournament, North West against Lions on October 17, seems a long time ago now as that was North West’s only victory. They won that game by four wickets with five balls remaining but have lost each of their five matches since.
North West’s latest defeat came against Warriors by 10 runs on Sunday with the bottom of the league side unable to reach their target of 167. Wesley Marshall top scored with 56 runs from 35 balls, his highest score of the tournament, with captain Heino Kuhn scoring 43 runs from 37 balls.
Hardus Coetzer recorded figures of 2-21 in Sunday’s match with Duan Jansen and Renaldo Meyer both taking a wicket each. 19 year old leg-spinner Caleb Seleka went wicketless against Warriors but is their top wicket taker in the tournament.
North West are looking to avoid their sixth successive defeat in this match.
