Cape Cobras Team News & Playing 11
Cape Cobras have a formidable top-order batting and the onus will be on Hashim Amla, Janneman Malan and Kyle Verreynne to ensure a strong position for their team when it comes to batting. Malan is one of the tournament's leading run-scorers and is having a strike-rate of over 150. Amla has not looked at his best so far but a good knock in the last game against the Dolphins should give him some confidence. The Cobras will turn to their go-to men Rory Kleinveldt, Dane Paterson and Vernon Philander to do the job for them with the ball. Kleinveldt is amongst the most successful bowlers in this year's CSA T20 Challenge with seven wickets in four matches and he is more likely to hurt the Knights in the powerplay.

Knights Team News & Playing 11
The Knights have had a disappointing season with the bat so far and they will be looking to the likes of Patrick Kruger, Raynard van Tonder and Grant Mokoena to score the big runs for them against the Cobras. Mokoena has scored the most runs for the team while van Tonder showed promising signs in his knock of 32 against the Lions last week. Shadley van Schalkwyk, Ryan McLaren and Eddie Leie form a pretty strong bowling attack. McLaren and Shadley have both taken three wickets each in the tournament and it will be crucial for the Knights that they have a good outing on Tuesday.
Knights Predicted Playing 11
Patrick Kruger, Andries Gous (wk), Raynard van Tonder, Petrus van Biljon (c), Grant Mokoena, Ryan McLaren, Gerald Coetzee, Shadley van Schalkwyk, Eddie Leie, Ottniel Baartman, Tshepo Ntuli

Cape Cobras vs Knights Betting Odds
Cape Cobras are favorites amongst the bookmakers to win this 13th game of the CSA T20 Challenge 2019 and they are being offered at odds of 1.51 on Betrally and 1.57 on both Betway and Bet365.

Cape Cobras vs Knights Prediction
The Knights have been unfortunate this season as two of their matches were washed out. They have played four matches so far and have lost two of those and that has left them languishing at the bottom of the points table. Cape Cobras, on the contrary, are at the opposite end of the table with three wins from four matches. They will be enjoying the home advantage and having won their last five completed matches at this ground will give them a huge psychological boost. The hosts have beaten the Knights in their previous three attempts and we feel they have a great chance of making it four in a row.
Back Cape Cobras to beat Knights at 1.51 with Betrally and 1.57 with both Betway and Bet365.
