Titans vs Dolphins #RamSlam T20 Finals 2017

0

The exciting T20 domestic tournament of South Africa nears the end. Titans will face Dolphins in this finals. The defending champions started the tournament with a win and they have dominated in each and every match of the tournament except one or two. I do not know whether it is Dolphin’s fortune or misfortune but almost all their matches were washed out away due to rain and the same thing was happened in their Semi Final match too. Supersport Park will host this Final match. Titans are playing on their home ground and they have won all their matches here this season. We have some interesting news to know that Dolphins defeated the Titans by a massive margin of 89 runs in their earlier encounter. But it may not repeat again as Titans will come with their full strength.  Titans have won the title five times in the past which is the most by any team in the tournament.

Venue

Supersport Park, Centurion

Forecast

Good and clearly no chance of rain

Pitch Report

Toss winning team may choose to field first as the pitch could ease up later in the evening. Looks like a good batting wicket and chasing will be easy. Fast bowlers will get help from this surface.

 

Team News : Titans

Titans cleary dominated all other teams in group stage. The champions of 2015 and 2016 will aim to win third title in a row on their home ground. Titans brought back it top players and 14 members squad has been announced and Albie Morkel will lead this. Davids was dropped for the semi final match against Warriors due to cramps just before the game. We are thinking Davids is fit and he will play this match. If he is not fit then Klaasen will continue in his place. Quinton de Kock, Aiden Markram and AB de Villiers hold the key with the bat. Markram is coming off an unbeaten fifty in the semi-final while de Villiers has scored the most runs for the team this Ram Slam season. The in form batsman Behardien played a crucial role in Titans success. Skipper Morkel is always unpredictable, he did not bowl full of his quota but took wickets when team wanted. Shamsi will be the go-to man for the Titans when it comes to bowling. Ngidi, Siboto,Steyn are their important pace bowlers.

Team News : Dolphins

Dolphins are very lucky as they are here, finals, tonight. A total of 6 games has been abandoned for Dolphins this year which includes the semi final too. 13 members squad has been announced and it will be lead by Zondo. Dolphins won the trophy in the year 2013 and they want to repeat again. Morne van Wyk is the team’s leading run-scorer this year and he will be expected to replicate that performance in this final match also. However, they need healthy contributions from middle order players like Zondo, Jaarsveld, Vilas. The spin duo Tahir and Maharaj played some crucial role in Dolphin’s success.

They need something special and extraordinary things should happen to domiante Titans batting line up and it is not possible. Backing Titans they are hot favourites.
