The match is one of two for both teams this weekend, with the home side striving for some sort of impetus to try and get their competition going.

Runaway leaders the Multiply Titans will be aiming to continue their storming start to the RAM SLAM T20 Challenge season when they welcome the Hollywoodbets Dolphins to Sahara Park Willowmoore in Benoni on Friday.

A maiden century from Reeza Hendricks help the bizhub Highveld Lions secure a thrilling last-ball victory over the Hollywoodbets Dolphins in their RAM SLAM T20 Challenge match in Potchefstroom on Sunday.

The opener ended unbeaten on 102 (72 balls, 12 fours), but it was the composure of Wiaan Mulder that got them over the line after the visitors threatened to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

A fine all-round bowling display followed by Aiden Markram’s unbeaten half-century helped the Multiply Titans stretch their advantage at the top of the RAM SLAM T20 Challenge table with a seven-wicket demolition of the winless WSB Cape Cobras in Centurion on Sunday.

Dale Steyn and Malusi Siboto picked up two for 16 apiece, while there was also a double for Lungi Ngidi (2/32) as the struggling visitors were restricted to just 119/9 in their 20 overs at SuperSport Park.

The Proteas fast bowler claimed 4/14 in just 2.2 overs as the hosts lost six wickets for seven runs at one stage – first collapsing from 50 for none to 57 for six, before eventually being dispatched for 111 in 14.2 overs.

Mangaliso Mosehle’s half-century paved the way for the bizhub Highveld Lions to record their first victory of the RAM SLAM T20 Challenge season as they cruised to a seven-wicket win over a poor WSB Cape Cobras in Johannesburg on Friday.

The visitors were sloppy in the field, taking wickets off no balls and spilling catches at crucial junctures as they remained winless after two games.

The pair both scored at a strike of over 250 as the hosts chased down a revised target of 135 in only 11.2 overs to win with a bonus point at SuperSport Park.
