Table-topping Lions in Dolphins cross-hairs
Durban - Following an unforgettable 4-Day Domestic Series win over the
Cape Cobras last week, the Hollywoodbets Dolphins will now take on the
current log leaders the Imperial Lions at the Pietermaritzburg Oval
starting on Monday.
Imraan Khan's side bowled the Cobras out for 86 in their second innings
with Senuran Muthusamy taking seven second innings wickets to hand the
Dolphins an unlikely 137 run victory, and his squad will be hoping to keep
that momentum against an in-form Lions outfit.
Grant Roelofsen has become the first player to three centuries in the
competition and registered his second in as many matches in the win
against the Cobras. Captain of the Dolphins Marques Ackerman is hoping

"We are excited to do well and compete against the Lions in Maritzburg
this week," Ackerman added.
Having been outclassed in the return fixture against the Lions at the
Imperial Wanderers, the Dolphins will be looking to turn their fortunes
around on home soil.
The Dolphins go into the match with an unchanged side from the squad that
travelled to Oudtshoorn.
