Match Preview

Cape Cobras and Warriors have been neck and neck this season as far as the points table is concerned in Momentum One Day Cup 2019. As the two sides meet at St George's Park, Port Elizabeth in the 28th game of the season it would be a good battle. Warriors are struggling at the moment having lost their last four games while Cape Cobras after a poor start in the season have shaped well in their last few games. 

Warriors had won the earlier game when the sides met but they are down on form at the moment. Cape Cobras would want to avenge that loss and would expect to do well in the next game.

Teams Preview

Warriors Preview

JJ Smuts’ team is going through a rough patch at the moment. They lost out in the last game against Dolphins badly and suffered their fourth consecutive defeat. As they prepare for the semi-finals the side would want to regain form and momentum winning the next game. 

JJ Smutts played well in the last game and was the only player to do well with the bat. The batting form has been inconsistent in the last few games which has cost the side dearly. Gihahn Cloete and Edward Michael Moore failed to provide the side a perfect start and would be looking to do well in the next game. Yaseen Vallie and Sinethemba Qeshile also have to do well in the next game for the side to win.  

Basheeru-Deen Walters was the only bowler who did well in the last game but the rest of them failed miserably. Edward Michael Moore, Sisanda Magala and Glenton Stuurman will need to improve their performance with the ball for the next game.

Warriors Predicted Playing XI:

JJ Smuts (c), Andrew Birch, Yaseen Vallie, Basheeru-Deen Walters, Lesiba Ngoepe, Edward Michael Moore, Sisanda Magala, Lutho Sipamla, Thomas Kaber, Marco Marais, Sinethemba Qeshile (wk)

Cape Cobras Preview

Dane Piedt’s side rode off to a comfortable win in the last game against the Knights. They are now sitting at the third position in the points table and would look to win against the Warriors who are struggling with form at the moment. 

Janneman Malan and Pieter Malan are going strong opening the batting for the side and gave a good start to the side. In Zubayr Hamza, Aviwe Mgijima and Kyle Verreynne they have a batting line-up that is in good form. One of the driving factors for the side has been the form of its lower order with Dayyaan Galiem and Vernon Philander fitting well in the finishers’ role and they would look to do well in the next game. 

Rory Kleinveldt bowled impressively in the last game picking up a 5 wicket haul. He was well supported by Vernon Philander, Akhona Mnyaka and Dane Piedt who kept it tight during the game. With strong bowling arsenal they would look to challenge the Warriors batting in the next game.
