Match Details:

The 8th match of the Momentum One Day Cup 2021 will be played between Warriors and Cape Cobras at the Senwes Park, Potchefstroom.

This match will start at 01:30 PM IST (10:00 AM Local Time) (08: 00 AM GMT) and will be streamed live on FanCode.


Both Warriors and Cape Cobras had a poor start to their 2021 Momentum One Day Cup campaign. The Cobras started off with a match against Highveld Lions. Batting first, they could only muster up 22 runs, which the Lions chased down with great ease.

Warriors also started their campaign with a defeat against Highveld Lions. They bowled really well to restrict a strong Highveld Lions batting lineup to only 220. However, their batting unit collapsed like nine pins and were bundled out for just 168. Hence, this game is an extremely crucial match for both the sides.

WAR vs CC Weather Report for Match 9:

Unfortunately, this game is likely to be a rain-curtailed one, if not abandoned completely. The chances of rain are 60% and the temperature will be around 22 °C.

Pitch Report:

The pitch here at Senwes Park is a balanced one, wth perhaps slightly more help for the bowlers. Anything in excess of 250 should be a good total here.
