Match Preview

Momentum ODI Cup is one of the prestigious ODI tournaments in the SA domestic circuit and its history dates back to the mid-1980s. South African cricket depends heavily on the local leagues and tournaments to help resurrect their slump in form.

With the national players leaving for the ODI series against England, the fringe payers have a big chance to impress with their performance. Both teams started the season on a good note with a win in their opening match. They will look to continue their winning form with another win in this match and get the valuable points to their name.

Teams Preview

Cape Cobras Preview

Cape Cobras put on a competitive total of 276 runs on board on the back of Pieter Malan`s century. Malan (106 runs) shared vital 50+ partnerships with Simon Khomeri and Jason Smith (76 runs) in the middle overs. George Linde`s 14-ball 31 runs helped the team to finish with a flourish.

Teenager Thando Ntini was the pick of the bowlers with 4 wickets. George Linde took 2 wickets to complete an all-round performance in the match. Dane Paterson, Rory Kleinvelt, Dane Piedt and Jason Smith took a wicket each to contribute to the bowling unit. Luckily Cape Cobras XI's last match is unaffected by the England tour.

Key Players:

Pieter Malan – Pieter Malan recently made his Test debut after 130 first-class matches and he will hope to make a mark in the ODI format and make the selectors notice him. He started the season with a well-compiled century against Warriors.

Thando Ntini – Thando Ntini had bowling figures of 9.1-0-36-4 in the opening match but his injury scare late on the day may be a bit of concern for the team. The youngster will look to impress with his performances in the upcoming matches.

Cape Cobras Predicted Playing XI:

Rory Kleinveldt, Dane Piedt (c), Jason Smith, Dane Paterson, Aviwe Mgijima, George Linde, Simon Khomari, Zubayr Hamza, Pieter Malan, Thando Ntini, Hanno Kotze (wk)

Lions Preview

Lions put on a clinical show in the first match to secure the win with a bonus point. Ryan Rickelton (92 runs) and Rassie Van Der Dussen (65 runs) took the team total past 300 runs. They will miss the core of their batting line-up with the likes of Temba Bavuma, Van Der Dussen, and Reeza Hendricks unavailable for selection. Pace bowler Beuran Hendricks took 4 wickets to stall any momentum to the opposition. Skipper Aaron Phangiso and Eldred Hawkin contributed with 3 & 2 wickets respectively to bowl out the opposition for 232 runs. They will further be weakened with Beuran Hendricks and Bjorn Fortuin too leaving for national commitments.

Key Players:

Ryan Rickelton Rickelton missed his century after being dismissed on 92 runs. He found run-scoring easy and kept scoring runs at a strike rate over 100 without any risky shots. He is the only player form top-4 available and will have a big role to play.

Aaron Phangiso – Aaron Phangiso broke the middle order with the wickets of Dean Elgar, Thenis De Bruyn, and Farhann Behardien the last match. He ended with figures of 10-0-39-3 and will look to continue his good form.

Lions Predicted Playing XI:

Aaron Phangiso (c), Mangaliso Mosehle, Dwaine Pretorius, Stephen Cook, Malusi Siboto, Nicky van den Bergh (wk), Eldred Hawken, Wihan Lubbe, Ryan Rickelton, Dominic Hendricks, Kagiso Rapulana

Weather Conditions

Paarl is expected to have a hot and sunny climate with no chances of rain. We will have a full quota of overs without any interruption in this match.

Venue Details

Paarl has a spicy track where pace bowlers will enjoy bowling more than the spinners. The average score in this pitch will be around 260 runs.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first have better success this season winning all three matches and we can expect captains to continue the trend.

Winning Prediction

Lions playing XI is affected by the absence of almost 5 players from the first match with a new-look middle order. Cape Cobras despite the absence of Kyle Vereynee and J Malan looked to better shape than the Lions. 

Cape Cobras will have home conditions and squad continuity to their advantage in this match. 

Cape Cobras will win the match!
