As we bid goodbye to the fabulous month of February and move into March, we have plenty of cricket to look forward to beginning on the very first day. We'll witness four important games to be played on the first day of the match. One of those game is between Cape Cobras and Titans in the ongoing Momentum One Day Cup where both sides will be looking to break away from the middle of the table crowd. The match is set to be played at Cape Town. Titans are coming off a humbling loss to Lions in their last encounter and are the fifth position in the points table whereas Cape Cobras registered a narrow win over the same team in their last encounter. The excitement in the competition is growing with every passing day and we expect nothing different in the upcoming fixture as well.
Although the Cobras have done reasonably well up until now, they've lacked the consistency in their performances in both the departments and will be looking to find some stability, both in terms of the results and the performance.
There has been a word about JP Duminy being considered to feature in the playing. Although his presence in the lineup will be a huge boost to their batting order, it is highly unlikely that the Cobras will make any changes to their winning combination.
The main reason for their success so far has been the opening pair of Malans who have impressed in almost every game they've played. George Linde has contributed to both the departments and he will be a key figure for Cobras once again. However, their middle-order isn't really as concrete as they'd have liked and JP Duminy, if he plays at all, could be the solution to their middle-order woes. With Dane Paterson and Dane Piedt available in their bowling attack along with the able bowlers in Bokako and Mnyaka to support, Cape Cobras certainly are a well-balanced side.

After a stupendous start to the tournament against the Warriors, the Titans failed to carry on with the momentum and produced relatively subdued performances in their subsequent games. The back to back losses against Dolphins and Lions would certainly have impacted their confidence and before they are dealt with any further damage, they will be looking to bounce back in the upcoming fixture.
With back to back losses coming into the match, the Titans will be looking forward to the return of Lungi Ngidi and Tabraiz Shamsi. Having said that, South Africa's clash against Sri Lanka isn't too far off and considering that and the World Cup, we might see the big fast-bowlers and wily wrist-spinner rested.
Dean Elgar, Heinrich Klaasen, and Chris Morris have done brilliantly for them and will be looking to carry on with the performance. de Bruyn, however, hasn't been at his best and will be looking to make a sizable contribution on Friday. All in all, the Titans are a well-balanced side and the return of Ngidi and Shamsi, which is the likelier scenario, will boost them further. With Elgar, Klaasen, and Morris in fine form, Titans will be a tough team to get past.

With competition getting stiffer with every passing match, it's an important encounter for both the sides. A win for Cobras will place them on almost on par with Warriors and Dolphins whereas, for Titans, a win will prove to be a significant boost to their morale and push them back into the contention. The Titans are likely to be strengthened by the return of Lungi Ngidi and Tabraiz Shamsi. With a stronger and a more experienced lineup at least on paper, the Titans are firm favorites to register a win in the upcoming contest.
