Match Preview

Momentum ODI Cup enters the crucial middle phase with every team looking to go ahead of the other teams and strengthen their position in the points table with the bid to qualify. Cape Cobras have played the most number of matches so far but are reeling at the fifth position in the points table. They need to get back their winning momentum and secure more points to stay in contention for the knockouts.

Dolphins are currently enjoying their stay at the top of the table after 4 matches but their only loss so far came against Cape Cobras. Dolphins will look to avenge for their defeat and stop Cobras from doing a double over them this season.

Teams Preview

Cape Cobras Preview

Cape Cobras lost their previous match by a close margin of 1 wicket defending a 300+ total. Openers Pieter Malan and Janneman Malan put on a good 50-run partnership to build the platform. Zubayr Hamza (156 runs) and Jonathan Bird (47 runs) shared a valiant 100+ run partnership with Hamza batting till the final over to take his team`s total to 304 runs. Thando Ntini bowled superbly taking 4 wickets in the match and his every wicket was a batsman inside the top-6.

Rory Kleinvelt took 2 wickets in the final over defending just 3 runs but was not enough to take his team over the line. Dane Piedt and Dane Paterson chipped in with a wicket each.

Key Players:

Zubayr Hamza – Hamza has scores of 156, 93, 129, & 58 in the last 4 consecutive matches. He is in red-hot form and we can expect him to continue his good form in this match too scoring runs consistently at the crucial No.3 position.

Thando Ntini – Thando Ntini has 11 wickets to his name and is the leading wicket-taker so far. He has an economy rate of 6+ RPO and will look to improve his economy rate in this match on the better side.

Cape Cobras Predicted Playing XI:

Janneman Malan, Pieter Malan, Zubayr Hamza (c), Jonathan Bird, Kyle Verreynne (wk), George Linde, Aviwe Mgijima, Rory Kleinveldt, Dane Piedt, Dane Paterson, Thando Ntini

Dolphins Preview

Dolphins made a short work of the small 140-run chase in their rain-affected game last night finishing the match with just over 20 overs. In-form Keeper Grant Roelofson made a mark yet again with his positive 56 runs at the top. Marques Ackermann`s 27 runs and Sibonela`s finishing act of 7-ball 21 ensured the win with 6 wickets in hand. The spin trio of Keshav Maharaj, Prenelan Subrayen, and Senuran Muthusamy was on fire picking up 6 wickets with their skipper Maharaj claiming 4 of them. Robbie Frylinck took 2 wickets bowling a superb spell of 8-2-13-2 with the new ball in hand.

Key Players:

Grant Roelofson – Roelofson has 297 runs at an average of 97.7 & strike rate of 112 this season with 2 fifties and a century to his name. He will look to build on his purple patch and finish among the leading run-scorers this season.

Keshav Maharaj – Maharaj bowled a brilliant spell of 10-0-32-4 in the last match. He has 7 wickets this season at an frugal economy rate of just 4 RPO so far bowling in the middle overs mainly.

Dolphins Predicted Playing XI:

Vaughn van Jaarsveld, Robbie Frylinck, Prenelan Subrayen, Keshav Maharaj (c), Khaya Zondo, Sibonelo Makhanya, Sarel Erwee, Senuran Muthusamy, Marques Ackerman, Kerwin Mungroo, Grant Roelofsen (wk)

Weather Conditions

Cape Town is expected to have a good sunny climate with just 10% chances of rain. We expect to have a full quota of overs without any interruption in this match.

Venue Details

Newlands is one of the good batting pitches and the pitch might slow doen as the match progresses. The average score in this pitch will be around 270-280 runs.

Toss: To Bat

The pitch slows down as the match progresses and so both captains will look to utilise the best of conditions by batting first.

Winning Prediction

Cape Cobras are struggling despite having the leading run-scorer (Zubayr Hamza) and wicket-taker (Thando Ntini) in their team so far. They need to perform more consistently as a team to win matches. Dolphins rely heavily on Grant Roelofson but have a bowling attack that hunts in a pack.

We expect Dolphins to win this match owing to their superior bowling attack than the Cape Cobras.

Dolphins will win this match!
