In the 20th fixture of CSA T20 Challenge, Knights would lock horns against Cape Cobras at Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein on Monday.
Cobra lost their previous match to Warriors, and now they would be only seeking to win their game against Knights to be back on track. Talking about Knights, they have had an annoying season so far, and they are yet to open their account this season after playing six matches.
With four wins in six games, Cape Cobra is sitting on the 2nd position with 17 points in their pocket, whereas Knights haven’t won a single game so far, so this makes them sit at the bottom of the table.
It would not be easy for Knights to win against such a balanced team, but they would try their best to move out of the ground with happy faces.
KTS vs CC, 22 April 2019
Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein, 6:00 PM
Pitch is expected to be damp as persistent rains are not letting play to start. The dampness of the wicket will mean that there won’t be a considerable bounce for the bowlers and the batsmen will find it hard to cope-up with the surface. Rain is expected to halt the game again.
Knights: Patrick Kruger, Andries Gous, Raynard van Tonder, Pite van Biljon, Ryan Mclaren, Grant Mokoena, Shadley van Schalkwyk, Ottniel Baartman, Tshepo Ntuli, Marco Jansen, Gerald Coetsee, Luvuyo Adams, Thandolwethu Mnyaka
