Match Details:

The 14th match of the Momentum One-Day Cup 2020 will be played between Cape Cobras and Dolphins at the Newlands in Cape Town.

The match starts at 1:30 PM local time (11:30 AM GMT) (5:00 PM IST).



Dolphins are leading the points table with 14 points in four games. Their players have given some impressive performances in Momentum Cup 2020. They have all their bases covered in bowling and batting. They boast a strong batting line up that comprises of Sarel Erwee, Grant Roelofsen and Vaughn van Jaarsveld, who have managed to pull off some amazing show with the bat. Now, in the upcoming clash, they will look to win their second consecutive game.

Cape Cobras have found it difficult to come up with convincing performances as their players look quite inconsistent in plying their traits to the best due to which their side has suffered this season of the tournament. They have suffered two back to back defeats in their last two outings. And, now they will aim to get back on the winning track. Zubayr Hamza’s performance will play an important role if Cobras wants to win their next clash against the in-form side of Dolphins.
