    There is one Ram Slam T20 match on Wednesday, with the Titans and Dolphins squaring off in Benoni.

    The situation for the Titans is simple: they need to win their last three games to have any chance of progressing to the playoffs. They will also need numerous results to go their way but that is out of their control. For them they know that they simply have to win on Wednesday.

    A Dolphins win would put them just one point out of a playoff spot and give them a real shot at progressing further in the competition. A loss however would see them having it all to do in their last two fixtures, and they would also then be relying on other results to go their way.

    Players to watch
    Both teams will be fielding overseas professionals from the West Indies, and with bragging rights on the line, you know that Darren Sammy (Titans) and Dwayne Bravo (Dolphins) will be giving it their all with both bat and ball.

    Bravo has, without setting the competition alight, had a better tournament than his international teammate, as Sammy has a high score of only 23 this competition but has performed better with the ball in hand.

    Prediction
    Both teams have struggled with inconsistency this tournament, the Titans however seem to be improving slightly as they beat the then top of the log Lions, and followed that up with a match saving bowling performance to tie with the Warriors.

    The Dolphins on the other hand seem to be struggling as of late as they were saved by rain against the Knights after being bowled out for just 82, and were comprehensively beaten by the Cobras in a reduced overs match.

    The Titans will feel that they have the momentum going into this match, and should be able to get the win on Wednesday.

    Titans squad: Daren Sammy (capt), Qaasim Adams, Junior Dala, Henry Davids, Theunis de Bruyn, Heinrich Klaasen. Eden Links, Ethy Mbhalati, Cobus Pienaar, Graeme van Buuren, Shaun von Berg, David Wiese.
