Strong finish key for Dolphins
Durban – Despite sitting comfortably in top spot of the Momentum One Day
Cup log, the Hollywoodbets Dolphins will be looking to finish the round
robin phase strongly when they take on the Imperial Lions at Senwes Park
in Potchefstroom on Friday.
The Dolphins have lost just two games throughout the campaign and are
eager go into the play-offs with another win under their belt. Coach
Imraan Khan believes that the side iusn’t focused on next week’s
semi-final just yet.
“I think that what’s worked for us this tournament is that we have taken

stepped up have put their hands up which is crucial.
“We try and maintain a high standard here because I believe if we do that
then we will perform well as a team,” Khan added.
There are two changes to the Dolphins team as Dupavillon returns in place
of Keith Dudgeon and young Andile Mogakane comes into the squad replacing
Excitingly for Dolphins fans Kingsmead will host another 50 over
