VenueNew Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg
One of the best teams of the Ram Slam T20 Challenge, 2013-14, Cape Cobras will enter the current championship for a best performance against Titans who were place third. The first grabbed the top position in the pool by clinching 34 points from 10 games while the latter held 22 from even matches. Justin Ontong led Cape Cobras superbly last year and will be anticipating better results in the Ram Slam T20 Challenge, 2014-15. Henry Davids was the skipper of the Titans in the previous event but he has been replaced by Farhaan Behardien this year.
Hashim Amla was the third highest run maker in 2013-14, Jean-Paul Duminy is a top class all-rounder in the shortest version of the game whereas Stiaan van Zyl, Richard Levi, Justin Ontong and Kieron Pollard have the capability to swing the game their way. Beuran Hendricks was the top bowler with 28 scalps, Robin Peterson, Vernon Philander, Dale Steyn and Rory Klienveldt always create problems for the batsmen.
Farhaan Behardien, Albie Morkel and Heino Kuhn smashed two hundred plus runs previous year for Titans while Faf du Plessis along with AB de Villiers are in great form currently. Darren Sammy and Henry Davids are the useful all-rounder of Titans and rest of the bowling attack will be handled by Morne Morkel, Roelof van der Merwe, Ethy Mbhalati, Marchant de Lange and David Wiese.
Sunday, November 2, 2014 @ 12:00 GMT, 14:00 local at New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg.
Mostly sunny with the temperatures around 15-28ᵒC.
Cape Cobras preferred to bat while Titans opted to field most of the times in the previous tournament.
