IN-FORM WARRIORS WILL PUSH WEAKENED COBRAS TO THE LIMIT

THE Cape Cobras have lost both their overseas pro and a senior player as they look to bounce back from an opening round defeat in the RAM SLAM T20 in a tricky fixture against the up-and-coming Warriors at Boland Park on Friday. The Cobras were punished for a sloppy performance last weekend when they went down by seven wickets to the bizhub Highveld Lions, but their task of tightening up and getting their title defence back on track was made harder with the departure of all-rounder Kieron Pollard and an injury to Robin Peterson. Pollard left Cape Town this week after he was called up to the West Indian squad that is currently in Sri Lanka, while Peterson broke a bone in his hand whilst fielding against the Lions.
Rory Kleinveldt also missed that game after falling on his shoulder during the warm-ups, and so the Cobras will need to evaluate their options for Friday’s game.One team that was given an early opportunity to experience high-pressure moments is the Warriors, who had their tournament opener against the Knights reduced to six overs per side, and then had to play a Super Over.The Warriors ultimately prevailed, and should be stronger for the experience.
