In the Momentum One Day Cup 2020 we have Dolphins squaring off against Cape Cobras at City Oval, Pietermaritzburg. This match will be taking place on February 9, 2020, at 1:00 PM IST.
The Momentum One Day Cup 2020 that kicked off on 31st January this year, has had a great start so far. All the six teams have played two matches each so far and the progress for the Dolphins looks pretty good at this stage. The dolphins are at the top of the points table with 9 points, having won both the matches they have played so far. Apart from the Lions the Dolphins, are the only team to have a winning streak. In their first match against the Knights, the Dolphins win by a huge margin of 94 runs. Then the Dolphins took on the Titans in the 6th match of the tournament at Centurion and won the game by 5 wickets. In their last game the Dolphins were able to successfully get quick wickets against the Titans as they sent the entire team back into the pavilion within just 39 overs. And in the 2nd innings, Grant Roelofsen was able to hit a brilliant unbeaten 147 runs, which carried the team to its victory. However, what’s important to note is that even though the Dolphins have performed moderately well with the bat, barring a few exceptions who have performed amazingly well, the Dolphins have not been able to build a partnership especially in the first few overs. The team will have to work on that.
The Cape Cobras have also been performing well so far, even though it is too early to tell if the team will be able to maintain a good performance. The Cape Cobras are at the 4th spot having won one match while losing the other. In their first game against the Warriors, the Cape Cobras won the match by 31 runs. However, it is important to note that the match was interrupted by rain and the winner was finalized by D/L method. In their second game against Lions, the Cape Cobras were defeated by 49 runs. The batting line up of the Cape Cobras is just moderate as only a few batsmen have been able to stand through the long haul and pull the team through. Just like with the Dolphins, the bowling side of Cape Cobras is in pretty good shape. The upcoming match will be an interesting one, as both the teams fare equally on paper.
