Match Details:

The 9th match of the CSA T20 Challenge 2021 will be played between Warriors and Cape Cobras on 23rd February at Kingsmead in Durban.

The match is scheduled to start at 10:00 AM local time (1:30 PM IST) and it will be streamed live on Star Sports Network and also on Disney+Hotstar.


In the 9th match of the 2021 edition of the CSA T20 Challenge, Warriors will take on Cape Cobras. Both teams are yet to open their account this season. Warriors will feel very unlucky after their last defeat where they fell short by just 3 runs against Dolphins. They lost both of their first two matches and will be eager to get their first win in this upcoming match.

On the other hand, Cape Cobras are having a disastrous season so far. They have lost as many as three matches they played and are placed at the bottom on the points table. They will be looking forward to winning this match and get their momentum back on track.
