Highveled Lions: None of the batsman has scored a half century in the tournament, Alviro Petersen's 40 being the highest individual score from the team. They will heavily bank on the likes of Quinton de Kock, Petersen, Neil McKenzie and Rassie van der Dussen to score big.
On the bowling front, Dwaine Pretorius is the leading wicket taker for the team with three. Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Sohail Tanvir and Imran Tahir look impressive though not in terms of wickets.
