The Final of the Momentum One Day Cup 2021 will be played between Dolphins and Highveld Lions on 4th February at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom.
The match is scheduled to start at 1:30 PM IST (10:00 AM local time) and it will be streamed live on Super Sports and CSN channels.
After finishing at the top of their respective pools, Dolphins and Highveld Lions will lock horns with each other in the final of the Momentum One Day Cup 2021. Highveld Lions won 3 out of 4 games to qualify easily for the knockout stage. Both of their batsmen and bowlers are in red hot form. Their last match against Knights got abandoned due to rain and they got through the Finals because of the highest pool rankings.
On the other side, Dolphins got to play only two games in Pool A, as the rest of their Pool games were affected by the rain. They won both of the matches and topped the points table. In the Semi-Final, they defeated Cape Cobras by 3 wickets. They are unbeaten in this tournament so far and they will look forward to continuing their winning momentum in Finals also, so as to get their hands on this coveted trophy.
