TIT vs HL: South Africa’s premier domestic one-day competition, the Momentum Cup is here with its 38th edition. In the first match of this season, the defending champions Titans will start their title defense against Highveld Lions who had a disappointing last season finishing right at the bottom of the points table.
Highveld Lions didn’t fare in the last edition as they could only manage 2 wins from 10 games and lost 4. They will definitely eye a better performance this time around and a win right at the start of the competition will be the best way to do it.
