The second match of the day in Momentum One-day Cup will be played between the Cape Cobras and Knights at the iconic Newlands in Cape Town. Things are almost over for the Knights as they are standing at the 5th position on the points table and their chances to finish among the top 4 looks completely bleak.
However, Cape Cobras are still alive in this tournament as they have 4 wins and 4 loss from 8 encounters and are tied with Warriors and Dolphins with the same number of wins and loses. If they manage to win their remaining encounters they can break into the top four and qualify for the semi-finals.
These two have had a battle prior to this game as well. Let us have a brief insight into what happened the last time around they both locked horns.
Knights vs Cape Cobras, 7th Match
It was the 7th match of the tournament and the second one for Cape Cobras. It was a high scoring affair which was clinched by Cape Cobras by 3 wickets.
Opting to bat first, Knights managed a formidable 282 on the board for the loss of 6 wickets courtesy half-centuries from A Gous, Keegan Petersen and Ryan McLaren. Cobras reply was led by a magnificent ton from wicket-keeper batsmen Kyle Verreynne scoring an unbeaten 114 from 119 deliveries which helped Cobras reach the target with 3 wickets and 3 balls to spare.
His knock was a prudent one in the context of the chase plus he was aided very well by the likes of Jason Smith and skipper Dane Piedt down the order.
