It’s the start of South Africa’s 50-over domestic season, as the 2021 Momentum One Day Cup (ODD) gets underway. In the Unusual tournament opener at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom Titans square off against Dolphins.
After a reasonably indifferent last season in the 50-over ODD, the Titans will be looking to start again. They won only four games, and in the ODD 2020 they finished second from last in the points table.
On the other hand, the Dolphins were outstanding in the previous ODD. In last season’s ODD Cup, they won seven and lost three of their ten league games. Two of the defeats came at the back of the season out of those three. Dolphins have a good batting lineup that comprises Marques Ackerman, David Miller and Khaya Zondo coming back to this ODD game.
For this game day, the weather forecast in Potchefstroom is perfect for cricket. Without any rain, we should have a complete match.
The pitch is okay for batting here in this stadium and has some support for seamers. It takes time for the players to adjust to the circumstances, resulting in more significant scores. 300 runs in total should be par. The team who wins the toss will choose to bat first.
