About the Match
Knights continued to disappoint in South Africa’s domestic fifty-over competition as they lost to Warriors in a low-scoring closely fought encounter. Up next in the tournament are Cape Cobras taking on Lions, the result of which will most likely govern the fortunes of the two sides going forward. Lions are currently placed at fifth place, just ahead Knights, and will be looking to kick-start their campaign against Cobras who haven’t done too well either. The Cobras won their first match, but have been following the downward spiral ever since. The upcoming match will push the winner in the top half of the table, to the third spot and that is what both the sides will be striving for.
So far, Cape Cobras haven’t had the kind of tournament they would have wanted to. They started off with a close defeat at the hands of Warriors, went onto register a win against the Knights, but then succumbed to the pressure of chasing in their match against Dolphins.
As compared to the peers, the Cobras have a pretty good bowling attack, but their batting hasn’t really clicked thus far. Their last outing was one such instance of it as they failed to chase down 277 won a reasonably flat track. Shezi and Imran Tahir did particularly well to keep things tight in the first few overs for Dolphins in the last match as the pair of Malans failed to get Cobras going in the powerplay. Cobras slid from 43 for 0 to 88 for and even though Verreynne, Linde, and Piedt contributed with good knocks, the lack of any support from the top-order did Cobras in against the last match.
Dane Paterson has been bowling well for them and it wasn’t any different in the last game as well. He returned with the impressive figures of three for 40 in his ten overs. However, barring Linde, there wasn’t any real effort with the ball from the Cobras that allowed Dolphins to rack up a big total in the first place. Cobras eventually fell 23 runs short of the target chasing 277.
Lions’ fifth position at the points table has a lot to do with luck rather than their poor performance in the tournament. Although they started off in the tournament with a loss to Dolphins in a high-scoring contest, they haven’t really had the chance to showcase their skills thereafter.
Both of their matches were washed out due to rain, one against Knights – without a ball being bowled, and the other one against Warriors where they had Warriors on the mat before the rain intervened. All their four points in the competition have accrued due to a couple of washouts.
Although Lions’ bowling failed miserably against the Lions in their opening game of the tournament, their batsmen put together a decent effort to make a match out of it as they got might close while chasing a massive total of 343. Reeza Hendricks and Rassie van der Dussen have been in fabulous form irrespective of the team they’ve played for. The duo are likely to play a vital role if Lions are to get something going for them in what has otherwise been a rather humdrum campaign for them.
CSA T20 Challenge
Lions will take on Cape Cobras for the second time in this season. In their last encounter, Lions defeated Cobras with a massive win by 7 wickets in their home ground. Lions are in a phenomenal form and have managed to win their last two matches with a huge difference. Lions won by 6 wickets in their last match against Dolphins. Cape Cobras, on the other hand, would be feeling the heat as they have not won a single match out of three matches they have played. In comparison, Lions is a stronger side and would easily take an edge over Cobras. However, the final result will be out after the match.
