A key half-century by Farhaan Behardien helped the Titans book a home semi-final and possible final after they edged out the Dolphins by 29 runs in their Momentum One-Day Cup clash at the City Oval in Pietermaritzburg on Sunday.
A record six-for by George Linde helped the Cape Cobras end the year on a high after they secured a 67-run bonus-point win over the Warriors in the first-ever Momentum One-Day Cup clash in Oudtshoorn on Saturday.
Attacking half-centuries by Vaughn van Jaarsveld and Dane Vilas paved the way for the Dolphins to begin their Momentum One-Day Cup campaign with a 26-run win over the Cape Cobras in Durban on Thursday.
The Cape Cobras possess the right mix of top-order excellence, middle-order power, bowling depth and reserve strength to win the Momentum One Day Cup competition this season, said Ashwell Prince, the coach. The Cobras will kick off their competition with a clash against the Hollywoodbets Dolphins at Sahara Stadium, Kingsmead in Durban at 13:30 on…
The motivational team talks that challenged the Cape Cobras to show guts and reveal their true character under pressure, and the inspirational presence of Rory Kleinveldt in the power plays have boosted the side said the left-arm spinner GF Linde.
The Cape Cobras and Warriors are both hoping to use their most recent T20 Challenge outings as springboards that will help contend for semi-final positions ahead of their showdown at Boland Park in Paarl on Wednesday.
There is no panic in the Cape Cobras dressing room and the team was bolstered by an undoubted highlight of Sunday’s 15-run loss against the Dolphins – the unbeaten fourth-wicket stand by batsmen Hashim Amla and Aviwe Mgijima – said the Cobras skipper, JP Duminy.
