About the Match

While Indian Premier League may have fetched the most limelight in the cricketing circuit, there is a lot of exciting action happening around the globe. These are still early days in South Africa's premier and World's oldest T20 competition, but we have already seen a lot of twists and turns in it. Cape Cobras, who were recently clobbered by the Titans, are set to face Warriors in the upcoming clash which is of significant importance for both the sides. Both the sides had a similar time in the recently concluded Momentum One Day Cup, but are at almost opposite end of the spectrum in the ongoing tournament. Despite that, we expect a terrific contest between the two sides.

Match Preview

Cape Cobras

Unlike Warriors, the Cobras have lost a game and it wasn't too long ago. Cobras lost to Titans a couple of days earlier in a one-sided contest. They are currently placed at fifth spot due to their poor net run rate, but a win here should push them among the top three teams in the points table.

The same inconsistency and the fragility in the batting which we saw in the Momentum One Day Cup were once again apparent as Cape Cobras could score only 150 runs in their allotted twenty overs. The poor form of Hashim Amla which has now stretched for over a year would be a huge cause of concern for the Cobras.

Even though the Cobras have an established batting lineup on paper, they haven't really been able to display that on the field. Barring Kyle Verreynne, who scored 44 off 38 deliveries, none of the Cobras' batsmen was able to get going. It was due to Rory Kleinveldt's and Philander's late cameo that they even managed to put up a respectable total.

As far as their bowling is concerned, it is apparent that their bowling is a little too depended on the kind of conditions they bowl in. While Kleinveldt and Philander can be very lethal in overcast conditions on the green surface, they struggle otherwise which was apparent against Titans as well.

Cape Cobras Starting Lineup

Hashim Amla, Janneman Malan, David Bedingham, Kyle Verreynne, Simon Khomari, Aviwe Mgijima, George Linde, VD Philander, Rory Kleinveldt, Dane Paterson, T Bokako.


Warriors

Despite the fact that the Warriors are currently at the top of the points table, they aren't really a lot ahead from their competition. Like the rest of the four teams having four points each, Warriors, too, have won one match and the extra two points due to the virtue of which they are at the top are due to a wash-out, against Knights.

They would be ruing their ill-luck when their match against Knights was washed out without a ball being bowled considering they registered a win over tournament favorites, Warriors, in the opening game of the tournament.

Bowling first in a rain-curtailed match, it was a tough game for their bowlers. Even though the eventually ended up with a wicket or two against their name in the wickets column, they expended too many runs in the process, as Titans racked up 216 runs in the allotted twenty overs. While chasing such a tall total would have been a colossal task, the rain came to their rescue.

With the chances of rain and DLS method coming into the picture touching the roof, Gihahn Cloete and Matthew Breetzke got Warriors off to a rapid start before the weather gods played their part. Warriors found themselves four runs ahead of the par total as there was no play thereafter.

Warriors Starting Lineup

Gihahn Cloete, Matthew Breetzke, Marco Marais, JJT Smuts, Sinethemba Qeshile, Lesiba Ngoepe, Lutho Sipamla, Thomas Kaber, Jade de Klerk, SSB Magala, Andrew Birch.

Match Prediction

The Warriors and the Cobras are definitely two of the most closely matched sides of the tournament and there is so little to choose between them. The Warriors will be disappointed to share the points with the Knights due to the weather while the Cobras have no one but themselves to blame for their last lost. The Warriors are playing at home, have the momentum, and are a slightly better-balanced unit as compared to the Cobras and are, therefore, our pick to emerge on top in the next match.
