CC vs TIT: Titans faced their second defeat of the season in three outing after failing to defend 309 runs target against Lions. Having put into bat first, Dean Elgar (137), H Klassen (82) and Chris Morris (51*) guided Titans to a decent total of 309-7 in 50 overs but Temba Bavuma’s unbeaten 117 along with Reeza Hendricks’ 95 of 90 deliveries overshadowed Elgar’s ton as Lions registered their maiden win of the tournament after four consecutive defeats.
With two wins and two defeats, Cape Cobras are placed third in the ladder with 8 points and would be looking to gain some momentum. They secured 21 runs win over Lions in their last encounter and would be desperate to take charge against Titan’s bowling lineup which looks a bit feeble without L Ngidi and T Shamsi. Cobras will once again rely upon their top order that consists of Malan Brothers and Zubayr Hamza for bulk scoring while skipper D Piedt, Dane Paterson and G Linde will have to lead from the front with the ball.
