Dolphins face Cobras in return MODC fixture on Wednesday
Durban – The Hollywoodbets Dolphins squad will travel to the Western
Cape to face the World Sports Betting Cape Cobras in their fifth
Momentum One Day Cup clash at Newlands on Wednesday hoping to turn
around their defeat to the men from Cape Town in round three.
Imraan Khan’s team have had a frantic start to the competition with
three wins from their first four games, including two bonus point wins
over the VKB Knights. They currently sit on top of the One Day Cup log
by a single point over the Imperial Lions.
The Dolphins fell just short of beating the Cobras in a rain-affected
clash at the Pietermaritzburg Oval earlier in the competition and Khan
believes the side is in a good space going into the final match of the
first half of the tournament.
“It has been a good start to the competition from the side, the boys
have played some really good cricket in the first half,” Khan said.
“The game in Maritzburg was a bit frustrating for us as a team because I
felt that the rain break and Duckworth/Lewis came into effect when we
were controlling the game but I still think it was a good effort to get
as close as we did.”
The game will see first and third on the run scorers charts go
head-to-head as the Cobras’ Zubayr Hamza, who has scored 457 runs in the
competition, goes up against Grant Roelofsen, who has bagged 293 runs so
From a wicket taking perspective the Cobras can also claim top spot as
young Thando Ntini leads the way with eleven scalps in five matches. For
the Dolphins, Keshav Maharaj is their highest placed wicket taker with
seven wickets at an average of nineteen runs per dismissal.
Despite being top of the log with one game left in the first half of the
competition, Khan’s team will keep their eyes on each game as it comes
rather than concentrate on making the play-offs.
“We are just going to take it game by game because there is still a long
way for us to go in this competition.
"There is still a lot of hard work ahead of the team with some big games
coming up starting with Wednesday against the Cobras,” Khan added.
