Durban – Following an interesting opening round in the Hollywoodbets Dolphins Premier League, presented by Aucor last weekend, this weekend’s action will put pressure on the teams near the bottom of the table to make a move if they want to be in the play-offs next weekend.
The action will head down the South Coast this week with Amanzimtoti Cricket Club hosting a jam-packed two days of cricket.
As it stands the Gap Debt Solutions Pietermaritzburg Spurs are sitting pretty in first place following three wins from their opening three matches last week.
They will be in for a tough test when they face fellow unbeaten outfit the AFFA Holdings Tugela Sharks on Saturday. The Spurs will then take on the Aucor Durban Chiefs on Sunday morning and the Fat Henry Drakensberg Thunder in their final game on Sunday.
The Tugela Sharks and the Durban Chiefs have won both of their games so far and it will be a battle for supremacy this weekend as they both face week one leaders the Pietermaritzburg Spurs.
The Sharks take on the Mobi Cell East Coast Wizards and the Synergy Umgeni Rhinos in their other two clashes this weekend. For the Chiefs, they face the East Coast Wizards and the Hollywoodbets eThekwini Hurricanes in their other two matches of the weekend.
The defending champion Hurricanes are mid-table and will need to make a move this weekend if they are to stay in touch with the top three teams while the Wizards can also move into contention for a play-off with favourable results.
The Jooma Properties Zulu Kings, the Drakensberg Thunder and the Umgeni Rhinos are all yet to register a win in the competition and will be looking to make strides up the log this weekend.
