Hollywoodbets Dolphins are riding high on luck. They have qualified for the Ram Slam CSA Challenge 2017 finale by virtue of a washout semifinal against Cape Cobras on Thursday. The match was abandoned without even the toss and with no reserve day, Dolphins entered the final to compete with Titans to win the season title.
Although Cape Cobras (5) have more number of winnings than Dolphins (3), in the points table the latter (23) finished above the Cobras (22) and hence got an edge. Now, the final on Saturday will decide who bags the 2017 winner title.
Both the teams are expected to play with the same playing 11 and would not like to experiment much in this final match. Although Titans are looking stronger, it won’t be that much easier for them too. Moreover, a nail-biting competition is underway.

It’s tough to predict how the pitch will play. But considering the last few matches, the wicket is expected to be fairly consistent. However, it will be a bit slower than the pacers would like.
