The Pitch

The previous game played on November 7, at Newlands between Cape Cobras and Dolphins was a one sided affair and the bowlers along with batsmen of the former side scored a lot of runs as compared to the latter side. That reflects the behaviour of the strip which will be ideal for bowlers and batsmen with perfect technique.


Cape Cobras – Justin Ontong (C), Richard Levi, Andrew Puttick, Omphile Ramela, Dane Vilas, Kieron Pollard, Sybrand Engelbrecht, George Linde, Ferisco Adams, Dane Paterson, Mthokozisi Shezi.

Lions – Neil McKenzie (C), Alviro Petersen, Chris Gayle, Temba Bavuma, Jean Symes, Thami Tsolekile, Dwaine Pretorius, Chris Morris, Eddie Leie, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Hardus Viljoen.


Lions will most probably repeat their previous performance against Cape Cobras.
