The previous match of the Ram Slam T20 Challenge, 2014-15 between Titans and Warriors ended as a scintillating tied one. Each team has played seven matches so far, the latter has won two, lost four, attained 11 points and holds the fifth position in the event. Cape Cobras grabbed their previous game vs. the giants, Lions, by a wide margin of 77 runs and enjoy the supreme position with 24 points after winning five and losing one while the other ended without any result. They will play their next match against Warriors and will anticipate another victory while the latter can give them hard time as well. Both teams might have the services of their key players who will be available after South Africa’s tour of Australia.
