The 8th match of the Momentum One Day Cup 2020 will be played between Dolphins and Cape Cobras at the City Oval in Pietermaritzburg.

Dolphins got off to a winning start with a 94-run victory against Knights in the second match of the Momentum one-day Cup 2020. They next took on defending champions Titans and won by 5 wickets in a game that was affected by rain with the match curtailed to 39 overs per side.

The Dolphins' bowling unit had an all-round display with Robbie Frylinck, Kerwin Mungroo, Okuhle Cele and Imran Tahir picking up one wicket each. Frylinck and akipper Keshav Maharaj were the most economical and conceded runs at less than 5.5 RPO.

It was courtesy of opener Grant Roelofsen that Dolphins chased down the total in the last over. The wicketkeeper played an unbeaten 147-run knock off just 113 deliveries and ensured a Dolphins win. Khaya Zondo also made a quick-fire 39 off 25 deliveries at a strike rate of over 150.

Cape Cobras won their first match of the season against Warriors by 31 runs but suffered a 49-run defeat against Lions in their next match.

In that game, Rory Kleinveldt and George Linde were the highest wicket-takers while Zubayr Hamza and George Linde notched up half-centuries.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Dolphins - Sarel Erwee, Grant Roelofsen (wk), Vaughn van Jaarsveld, Marques Ackerman, Khaya Zondo, Senuran Muthusamy, Robbie Frylinck, Keshav Maharaj (c), Imran Tahir, Kerwin Mungroo, Okuhle Cele

Cape Cobras - Pieter Malan, Hanno Kotze (wk), Zubayr Hamza, Simon Khomari, Jason Smith, Aviwe Mgijima, George Linde, Rory Kleinveldt, Dane Piedt (c), Dane Paterson, Thando Ntini
