The Highveld Lions and Warriors draw the curtain on the 2018/19 franchise season on Sunday when they meet in the CSA T20 Challenge final at the Wanderers in Johannesburg.

The two teams reached the final when they won their respective semi-finals on Workers’ Day on Wednesday.

The Lions easily overcame the Dolphins by eight wickets at the same venue, while the Warriors edged out the Cape Cobras by 15 runs in East London. Lions coach Enoch Nkwe expects the Warriors to be a serious threat.

Nkwe is a man that has transformed the fortunes of Gauteng Cricket in what is his first season in charge.

They have already won the biggest prize in franchise cricket, the 4-Day Domestic Series crown.
