Cape Cobras will take on Highveld Lions in Momentum Cup at Recreation Ground, Oudtshoorn this Sunday morning, with Cobras aiming to recover from inconsistency in the competition and Lions searching for an elusive first victory in the tournament.
Cape Cobras started their campaign in the opening game of Momentum One Day Cup with a crucial three-wicket defeat over the Warriors at Boland Park in Paarl last week. Then, the team bounced back with a 3-wickets win over Knights special thanks to Kyle Verreynne for his invaluable century. Again, the team’s performance faltered with a 22 run defeat to Dolphins.
Cape Cobras vs Highveld Lions Prediction
Lions have remained winless after two matches of their Momentum One-Day Cup campaign after rain washed out the fourth one-day clash against the Warriors at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium on Wednesday. The club is still searching for the first victory after they face a 19 run defeat to Dolphins in their opening game in City Oval at the weekend.
Lions will hold an edge over Cobras with Lions finishing top of the table in the 2018/19 4-Day Domestic Series having won 7 games out of 10 played in the tournament and have also defeated Cobras in the 4-day series in the last minutes of the campaign. We predict Lions are strong favorites to win this game here.
