Durban – The Hollywoodbets Dolphins have booked their spot in the

two matches and will want to continue that form in their final two group
matches tomorrow and Saturday.
The Dolphins dismantled the Momentum Multiply Titans in their
competition opener and then followed that up with a good win over a
strong VKB Knights team the following day. The subsequent match between
the Knights and the Titans was rained out.

“When he was batting at the back end I don’t think anyone was worried
because if he hits it well it will clear the fence,” Subrayen added.
The Dolphins will play their penultimate group game against the Titans
on Thursday with their final match of the round robin phase of the
competition on Saturday.
