Knights face Cape Cobras in Momentum Cup at Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein this Tuesday, with both clubs searching for an elusive first victory in the tournament.
Knights heads into this game after rain washed out their fifth one-day clash against the Lions at the New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg last weekend. The club have already faced a crushing nine-wicket defeat against the Titans at SuperSport Park at the weekend. Knights set Titans a target of 262 runs for the loss of 5 wickets that Titans openers Tony de Zorzi and Henry Davids chase down with ease in just 38.4 Overs.
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 on last Friday evening. Cobras set a target of 276 runs for the loss of 6 wickets with the help of Kyle Verreynne, Pieter Malan, and Zubayr Hamza. Then, Warriors recorded a comfortable win in the opening game with the help of remarkable century from Gihahn Cloete, two invaluable half-centuries from youngsters Matthew Breetzke and Sinethemba Qeshile and crucial nine runs from Sisanda Magala in the last over of the game.
Knights vs Cape Cobras
The Cape Cobras have performed exceptionally well in the 4-day Franchise Series that ended in January 2019, maintained the top position for entire season, before finally being overhauled by the Lions in the last five minutes of the campaign. Cape Cobras will hold an upper hand over Knights with Cobras finished in the top-two spot of the table in the 2018/19 4-Day Domestic Series having won 6 games out of 10 played in the tournament, while Knights have ended in the bottom three of the 4- Day Series league table. We predict Cobras are strong favorites to win this game here.
