Johannesburg - The Highveld Lions won the toss and elected to bat first in their SuperSport Series match against the Dolphins at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg on Thursday.

The Lions boast an experienced line-up with the likes of Alviro Petersen, Neil McKenzie and Zander de Bruyn in the playing XI.

The home team also have an exciting new-ball pair in Ethan O’Reilly and Craig Alexander while wicketkeeper Thandi Tsolekile will want to remind the national selectors of his abilities.

But the Lions will have their hands full with a Dolphins team that includes Hashim Amla and leg-spinner Imran Tahir, a player of whom much is expected when he is sure to make his Test debut against Australia next month.

The Dolphins have also included two former Lions, all-rounder Robbie Frylinck and fast bowler Friedel de Wet, who signed for the KwaZulu-Natal franchise during the off-season.

Teams:

Highveld Lions:

Alviro Petersen (captain), Stephen Cook, Jonathan Vandiar, Neil McKenzie, Zander de Bruyn, Cliffe Deacon, Thami Tsolekile (wk), Shane Burger, Dale Deeb, Ethan O’Reilly, Crag Alexander

Dolphins:

Imraan Khan (captain), Divan van Wyk, Hashim Amla, Vaughn van Jaarsveld, Ahmed Amla, David Miller, Daryn Smit (wk), Robbie Frylinck, Kyle Abbott, Imran Tahir, Friedel de Wet
