Warriors vs Cape Cobras

Warriors Team News & Playing 11

The Warriors had a perfect outing with the ball last time, restricting the Knights to 96/7 in the 20 overs, and would be hoping that their bowlers are able to deliver something similar in this big game. Andrew Birch was the wrecker-in-chief with incredible figures of 4-10 from four overs. The pacer has been the most impressive of all the bowlers in this line-up and holds the key for the Warriors with the new ball. Lutho Sipamla and Sisanda Magala have done a fairly good job with the ball and they too can cause a few problems for the Cobras. In terms of batting, the Warriors bank mainly on Gihahn Cloete, Marco Marais and Matthew Breetzke to score the big runs for them. Cloete is the team's leading run-getter with 196 runs followed closely by Marais with 195 runs at an average of 48.75 and a strike-rate of over 170. Marais had struck a 36-ball 75 in the reverse encounter and he will be expected to contribute heavily once again.

Cape Cobras Team News & Playing 11

The Cobras were underwhelming with the bat in their previous game against the Dolphins and they will be counting on the likes of Janneman Malan, Kyle Verreynne, JP Duminy and David Bedingham to make sizeable contributions on Wednesday. Malan is the third-highest run-scorer in the season with 221 runs. The opener has been striking it well and it will be crucial that he along with his partner Verreynne get the Cobras off to a good start in this semi-final match of CSA T20 Challenge 2019. Duminy has scored 30 runs in his two outings but the team will need more from him if they are to challenge the in-form Lions. Vernon Philander, Rory Kleinveldt and Tladi Bokako are all amongst the top five bowlers of the tournament with 10 wickets apiece from 9 matches, and the team's bowling relies heavily on this pace troika. Philander notched up a five-fer while Bokako took three wickets in the reverse encounter. Kleinveldt was the pick of the lot in the last game against the Dolphins and the skipper will look to make a few early strikes in the powerplay.
