Knights are up against Highveld Lions in a battle of the laggards in a Momentum One Day Cup tie at Mangaung Oval on Saturday. Knights have not had the best of starts in the competition and are still seeking their first win in the competition. With five games to go and nothing much to lose, Knights still have a chance to lift themselves in the points table.
Meanwhile, Lions are having a horror of a tournament. After seven Momentum One Day Cup 2019 fixtures, Lions have only one win to show for. With three more games remaining, they need to win it all to stand a chance of making the top 4.
