About the Match

The Warriors and the Cape Cobras are going to be playing their last group match of the Momentum Cup ODI tournament against each other. The Warriors are currently fourth in the table standings and will want to win this last game to ensure they have no hiccups in qualifying for the Momentum Cup Knockouts.

The Cape Cobras have picked up steam as the Momentum ODI Cup 2019 has come along. They have won five out of their nine matches and are in good form coming into the business end of the tournament.

Neither of the two sides has too much to lose in this game and the absence of a few international stars from their lineup is not going to hurt them too much.

Match Preview

Warriors

The Warriors suffered a very heavy defeat against the Dolphins in their previous match. The Warriors batted first in that match and was unable to get any sort of rhythm to their inning. Almost all the batsmen in the top-order were able to get a start but none of them was really able to make it count.

Smuts made 76 from 99 deliveries and was the best batsman by far but he was also not able to accelerate like he usually does. We think that Gihahn Cloete, JJ Smuts, and a number of other good domestic players makes the Warriors a dangerous batting side but definitely not the strongest one in this competition.

The Warriors will need all of its batsmen to continue scoring runs even when the international players become available for the closing stages of the competition.

The bowling was very ineffective in the previous match and could leave the Warriors in a state of turmoil. Walters, Stuurman, Edward Michal Moore, and Sisanda Mgala are not going to be running through any sides soon. What the Warriors will be hoping for is to have their bowlers be disciplined and keep the scoring tight.

The Warriors are not a side that is going to be able to withstand the loss of form for its leading players. They have done well in the competition despite not having too many international faces. They could find the going very tough in these final few matches of the Momentum ODI Cup 2019.

Warriors Starting Lineup

Gihahn Cloete, Matthew Breetzke, Yaseen Vallie, Lesiba Ngoepe, Sithembile Langa, Marco Marais, Onke Nyaku, BD Walters, SSB Magala, JJT Smuts, Jade de Klerk.


Cape Cobras

An excellent bowling performance and a competent chase with the bat was enough to get the Cape Cobras home in their last match against the Knights. Rory Kleinveldt turned back the years and bowled with a lot of fire to lead his side’s bowling challenge.

Kleinveldt picked up five wickets in just 8.4 overs and gave away only 22 runs in the process. He was very well supported by Vernon Philander who bowled three maidens to ensure that the pressure was never lifted off the opposition.

The availability of senior players like Philander, Kleinveldt, and Piedt in the side is a big boost to the Cape Cobras. Their experience allows the younger players to bowl with some guidance and gets the best out of them as well.

Akhona Mynaka, Tsepo Ndwandwa, and Dayyaan Galiem have all been quite good in the Momentum ODI Cup 2019 giving the Cape Cobras a reasonable amount of depth in the bowling department. JP Duminy should join the side for the knockout matches and he has been bowling very regularly too.

Runs by Janneman Malan, Pieter Malan, Zubayr Hamza, and Kyle Verreynne are coming at just the right time for the Cape Cobras. They have shown the ability and the maturity to play according to the situation in a couple of matches.

They could struggle to chase down a big total without JP Duminy in the side but there is no doubt about the inherent talent in this lineup. We are looking at Janneman Malan and Zubayr Hamza to play a central role in this match and even in the knockout matches to follow.

Cape Cobras Starting Lineup

Janneman Malan, Pieter Malan, Zubayr Hamza, Aviwe Mgijima, Kyle Verreynne, Dayyaan Galiem, VD Philander, Rory Kleinveldt, Dane Piedt, Akhona Mnyaka, Tsepo Ndwandwa.

Pitch and Conditions

The Momentum Cup 2019 match between the Warriors and the Cape Cobras is going to be played at St.George’s Park, Port Elizabeth. The weather forecast for Port Elizabeth on match day is very good. We should be able to get a full, uninterrupted match in without any rain.

The pitch at St.George’s Park is good for batting and has seen some big scores pile up. A score of around 280 should be considered a par total for the course.

Match Prediction

The Cape Cobras are coming into this match in good form. They have a batting lineup that is in form and a better bowling attack than the Warriors. Players like JJ Smuts make the Warriors very dangerous. Their six wins from eight matches should not be taken lightly but we still think that the Cape Cobras have an excellent chance of winning this match.

Back the Cape Cobras to win.
