Its Cape Cobras 5th match and they have won 2 lost 2 in the tournament. So far Cobras seems the balanced side with Levi, Ramela, Zyl, Ontong and Vilas on batting side and bowling being taken care by Kleinveldt, Williams, Piedt and sometimes Mgijima. In last match Qwabe replaced Moreki but he did not perform well and went expensive. Jason Smith did not play in last match and replaced by Peterson but could not exploit the chance may make way for Jason Smith back to the team.
Lions journey so far not been so great as they have won only one match but with the likes of Reeza Hendricks, Dussen, Roux, Beuran Hendricks and Fortuin they can come back hard any time.
Reeza’s bat is quiet from last two matches after hitting a century in first match. Dominic Hendricks and Mulder who replaced Cook and Bavuma in last match did not perform and this might get Bavuma back to the team as Bavuma is the only player who has made half century in his last match and after Reeza Hendricks’ century
