Exactly opposite to how they fared in the fifty over format, Dolphins are portraying their skills and have risen to the top of the table in the ongoing CSA T20 Challenge. Right behind them are Cape Cobras, who too weren't near the top of the table in the Momentum One Day Cup. The Cobras are set to meet Dolphins in the upcoming contest which is to be played on Sunday, 14th April at Cape Town. Dolphins are currently placed at the points table and they'll have an opportunity to move on par with the Cobras in this game. For Cape Cobras, this match will be an opportunity to rise to the top of the table. With both teams fighting for different end results, but one common immediate goal, we expect it to be a hard-fought encounter.
Cape Cobras stormed to the second spot in the points table with a fabulous win over Warriors in their previous encounter. The win and the manner in which it came has to be attributed to the brilliant innings by Jannemann Malan who batted Warriors out of the match through his brilliant hundred.
Although their batting did reasonably well against the Warriors, Hashim Amla's form is certainly a cause of concern for the management. Up until the last match, their bowling was leaking runs regularly and was often unable to be penetrative enough in the early overs, but the way they did in the previous match would certainly have raised the hopes of the fans and the management.
It is extremely unlikely that the Cobras will make any unforced change to their playing eleven, especially after the dominant win they posted on Friday. Aviwe Mgijima did well in the previous match along with Rory Kleinveldt, Dane Paterson, and Vernon Philander. With Jannemann Malan and Co. also in form, it won't be easy to get past them for the Dolphins in the upcoming match.
Hashim Amla, Janneman Malan, David Bedingham, Kyle Verreynne, Aviwe Mgijima, Nkululeko Serame, George Linde, VD Philander, Rory Kleinveldt, Dane Paterson, T Bokako.
With a win in three matches, the Dolphins aren't really too behind the top of the table. However, a loss here will quickly escalate things and push them to the bottom of the table, if the results of other matches too do not go their way.
The competition couldn't have been more mixed for the Dolphins. Out of three matches, they've won one, lost one and one - the last one was washed out due to rain. They have a couple of experienced campaigners in their rank, in Morne van Wyk and Keshav Maharaj, who would be expected to do the bulk of the business for them.
As compared to the game they played prior to the one which was washed out, we don't really expect them to make any major changes to their playing eleven. Marques Ackermann played a wonderful knock in their opening game which should have boosted his confidence to a great extent. All in all, the Dolphins look fairly settled in all departments of the game and if they play as per they potential, the Cobras will have their work cut out.
Sarel Erwee, Mv Wyk, C Chetty, Khaya Zondo, Marques Ackerman, Sibonelo Makhanya, Robbie Frylinck, K Maharaj, P Subrayen, Lwandiswa Zuma, D Dupavillon.
Rain and luck both have played a major part in the tournament thus far. Dolphins probably escaped with the two points in a match wherein they certainly weren't the favorites. Having said that, they are an excellent team and are well and truly capable of beating even the best in the business on their day. Considering the overall form and team on paper, both the teams are almost on par with each other and there's hardly anything to separate them, but with Janneman Malan and bowlers in fine form, the Cobras are favorites, albeit marginally to win the upcoming encounter.
