CLT20: Warriors eye second straight win, take on Redbacks

Hyderabad: Having made a sensational star with a thrilling win over Royal Challengers Bangalore, South African team Warriors would look to build on the impressive beginning when they take on South Australia Redbacks in their Champions League Twenty20 Group B match on Sunday.

The South African side straight away sounded warning bells for the other sides by chasing down an imposing target of 173, set by Bangalore in their opening match.

Their strength is the deep batting line-up with skipper Johan Botha coming as late as number six and still scoring a match-winning knock along with opener Ashwell Prince.

While Warriors are a star studded side with the likes of Prince, Colin Inagram and Mark Boucher in their ranks, Redbacks have only one established name in paceman Shaun Tait.

Yet, Redbacks are a young side and expected to give the Warriors a good fight.

Callum Ferguson has the experience of playing international cricket as he has done national duty for in 30 ODIs and the side would look up to him for an all-round performance.

Nathan Lyon, who rose from a groundsman to Test bowler, is another player to watch out.
