WAR vs KTS Dream11 Team | Knights vs Warriors Preview & Prediction | Fantasy Team & Team News

Warriors and Knights will fight it out in the 4th match of the CSA T20 Challenge tomorrow. Both the teams have played 1 game each so far and both have had contrasting results. Warriors stunned the reigning champions Titans in the opening match, whereas Knights lost against Dolphins.

The WAR vs KTS Dream11 Match Preview

Warriors have started the campaign by defeating the champions and it must have enthused great confidence in them. They would surely be keen to make the most of it when they face Knights tomorrow at the Diamond Oval. Knights, on the other hand, would be out to register their first win of CSA T20 challenge and, hopefully, get going from there.

Knights were disappointing in the Momentum One Day Cup and even the format change has not helped them. Even though some of their bowlers did well last time around, they failed as a batting unit. The likes of Gous, Rudi Second, Bijlon and Mclaren will have to do better to help the cause of their team.

Meanwhile, Warriors captain Smuts will ask his team-mates for more of the same. They were good in the rain-curtailed match against the reigning champions. The template is already there for the Warriors to have a good outing against Knights and they will do well to follow that.

Warriors have had the upper hand in their rivalry against the Knights and they will work hard to ensure it continues that way.

Fantasy picks from Warriors

Cloete | Sipamla | JJ Smuts

  • Cloete was brilliant in his 46 run knock to help his team win against Titans.
  • Sipamla has always found himself among wickets for Warriors
  • Smuts, the captain, can impact a game with the bat and the ball too.

Fantasy picks from Knights

Bijlon | Shadley van Schalkwyk

  • Schalwyk was brilliant with the ball last time where he picked up 2 wickets while being economical
  • Bijlon, much like Second, will have to come good for his team if they are to win this match
