Cape Cobras captain Kieron Pollard has called on his players to stay grounded ahead of their clash against the Warriors at St George’s Park.
Hashim Amla is available to the Cape Cobras for Friday’s all-important T20 Challenge clash against the Warriors at St George’s Park.
The Cape Cobras’ late quest for a T20 Challenge playoff spot has gathered serious momentum with a second successive win at Newlands.
It is not often that a player leaves a franchise after playing a spectacular innings in a final to spearhead his team to the title. But that’s just what Mangaliso Mosehle did at the end of last season. Mosehle, playing out of the Titans franchise, outshone even Proteas superstar Quinton de Kock in the T20 Challenge showpiece at SuperSport Park
Not even a masterful 79 by Kevin Pietersen could deny the Cape Cobras, who beat the Dolphins by seven wickets in Durban on Sunday.
Kevin Pietersen is the star attraction for the Dolphins, but Cobras coach Paul Adams believes his team must beware the rest of the top-order.
Knights coach Nicky Boje concedes their T20 Challenge bid is all but over after a fifth straight loss in midweek.
The Cape Cobras won’t be able to call on Hashim Amla, but two other Proteas in JP Duminy and Dane Vilas will return for the second half of the T20 Challenge.
