Man of the Match: DS Rosier
Titans to Win this game
Our prediction is Titans to win this game!
SuperSport Park, Centurion shall host the 21st match of the 2019 Momentum One Day Cup where the hosts Titans would take on Cape Cobras.
Titans are riding on good form being the current table toppers and come into this game with three back-to-back wins. Cape Cobras on the other hand are also looking good and have won their last two games and currently sit fourth in the points table.
Earlier in the season the Titans had comfortably won against the Cape Cobras which will give them lot of confidence going into this game. It remains to be seen if we see a repeat of the same performance or the table turns this time.
Heinrich Klaasen is leading an inspired team at the moment. They comfortable defeated the Warriors in the last game which was cut short by rain and would be hoping to continue with the same momentum into the next game.
Aiden Markram has been in good form but his absence in the next game is likely to be felt. The rest of the middle and the lower middle order had struggled in the last game but the likes of Theunis de Bruyn, Heino Kuhn and Heinrich Klaasen have done well in the season. With Chris Morris, Farhaan Behardien and Junior Dala in the line-up the side bats deep and this makes them strong.
Shimane Alfred Mothoa, Chris Morris and Gregory Mahlokwana bowled well in the last game and they would be looking to keep it tight in the next game. Junior Dala has also been good this season and they have a good mix of bowlers to trouble their opponents in the next game.

Jean-Paul Duminy’s side won the last game comfortably against the Dolphins and this would make them confident. However the skipper is likely to miss out on the next game as he has been selected for the national side.
Janneman Malan is looking in great form having scored a hundred in the last game. Pieter Malan his opening partner is also doing well at the top. George Linde, Zubayr Hamza, Kyle Verreynne and Aviwe Mgijima complete a strong batting line-up for the side but they would definitely miss Duminy in the middle order who has years of experience with him and has done well this season.
Rory Kleinveldt and Dane Person bowled well in the last game and the latter has been among the top wicket takers this season. With Akhona Mnyaka and George Linde shaping up well the team has the bowling line-up to trouble their opponents. They would hope to keep it tight against the strong batting line-up that the Titans have.

It is expected to be a sunny day in Centurion on the 13th of Match which is a welcome break from the spell of rain interruptions we have had. The pitch is known for favoring fast bowlers and the speedsters on both the sides would be raring to bowl here. A score in excess of 280 runs would be a competitive total here.
SuperSport Park, Centurion is a typical South African track where the grass offer good bounce and carry for the fast bowlers. This is also a good wicket to bat on for batsmen who like to hit through the line as once they are set scoring becomes easy with a relatively fast outfield.
SuperSport Park, Centurion has historically been a good ground for the fast bowlers. Early juice in the wicket makes the ball do a lot and the captain winning the toss would also like to exploit early conditions. The pitch also becomes a better one to bat on as the game progresses sure calls for bowling first here.
It is expected to be a tough contest as both the sides having done well in the last few games. Titans have surely been the best team this season having won four out of their six games. Cape Cobras after a dismal start to the season have made a turnaround in the last few games. But given what we have seen from the two sides so far in the season Titans without any doubt shall start as favorites to win this game.
