Team News : Cobras
They started the tournament with hat trick losses but they had turned things quickly and won back to back matches. Same XI is expected from Cobras side after those two victories. The team’s batting is mainly going to revolve around the skipper Duminy who is in form and the other player is Amla. Bavuma is also a good man and he needs to serve his team immedielty. The experienced Philander finally got back his rhythm with ball and he is an important man for Cobras in bowling unit. Cobras will rely largely on the pace of Rory Kleinveldt and Vernon Philander.
Team News : Warriors
Finally Warriors tasted a first win in the season after defeating Lions. Ingram was the man who really played very well in that match especially when his team was struggling. Till lot many problems are there in Warriors side. Skipper Smutts is struggling with both bat and ball. This will be an important game for skippers and he must play very well in this match. The Warriors will also expect good contributions from Christian Jonker and Colin Ackermann. Bowling will rely mostly on the likes of Basheeru-Deen Walters and Andrew Birch. Both pacers are doing well for Warriors in the on going season.
