Cricket Betting Tips & Match Predictions: CSA T20 Challenge 2021- Cape Cobras vs Warriors- Match 9
The 9th match of the CSA T20 Challenge 2021 will be played between Six Gun Grill Cape Cobras and Warriors at the Kingsmead Stadium, Durban.
Current Form Six Gun Grill Cape Cobras:
Six Gun Grill Cape Cobras have had a dismal tournament so far as they have lost all of the three games played.
In the last match against VKB Knights, Cape Cobras won the toss and elected to bat first. Tony de Zorzi and Zubayr Hamza provided a brilliant start and collected 39 runs for the opening partnership. However, the real boost to the innings was provided by the 3rd wicket partnership between Kyle Verreynne and Zubayr Hamza as they accumulated 88 runs between them. Zubayr Hamza scored an unbeaten 77 off 49 deliveries while Verreynne made 45 off 31 balls. In the end, Cape Cobras got to a commanding total of 167 for 5 in 20 overs.
Chasing 167, VKB Knights scored quick runs in the powerplay overs and always looked on course of achieving the target. The partnership in the middle overs between Pite van Biljon and Raynard van Tonder almost sealed the game for Knights when an unbelievable collapse happened. They went from 119 for 2 to 152 for 7 in the 19th over. With 16 runs needed off just 3 balls, it seemed almost impossible for Knights but Migael Pretorius had different plans in his mind. He smashed 18 runs off the next 3 deliveries to win the game for his team by 3 wickets.
It was a memorable game, one that Cape Cobras would like to wipe off their memory lane.
Current Form Warriors:
Warriors have played 2 games so far in the tournament and lost both of them. They currently stand at the 5th spot on points table.
In their last game against Dolphins, Warriors elected to bat first after winning the toss. They posted 143 for 5 in 20 overs. Sinethemba Queshile was the top run scorer with 47 runs to his name in 38 balls. He seems to be an incredible touch this tournament and has been rescuing his team from tough situations. JJ Smuts also made an impactful 29 off 24 deliveries. On the back of these knocks, Warriors reached a total of 143 for 5.
Chasing 143, Dolphins got off to a wonderful start as the openers added 92 runs for the 1st wicket. Both of them dominated the game right from the start and did not lose out on any opportunity to score runs. Sarel Erwee made 52 off 37 deliveries while Keegan Petersen scored 58 off 56 balls. Petersen remained unbeaten to ensure he gets the team over the line. Rain started pouring at the end of the 18th over and Dolphins were easily ahead of the DLS target by 3 runs. The match could not restart and Dolphins were awarded the game.
