The Cape Cobras’ late quest for a T20 Challenge playoff spot has gathered serious momentum with a second successive win at Newlands.
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.
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.

If ever a team needs to gain revenge over an opponent, it’s the Cape Cobras in their T20 Challenge encounter against the Titans in Centurion.
Cape Cobras off-spinner Dane Piedt has been allowed to join the Titans on loan “in the interests of South African cricket”, according to frachise chief executive Nabeal Dien.

David Miller is enjoying the “vibrancy and the energy” at the Knights as he prepares to shift focus to the format he has been most successful at in his career – Twenty20.
