Johannesburg, April 07, Sunday at 06:00 PM IST
The third fixture of CSA T20 Challenge 2019 will witness the clash of Cape Cobras and Highveld Lions at New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg on Sunday evening. Both the sides had an average outing in the 50-over tournament and would be looking for a better run in the shorter format.
Cape Cobras got knocked out of the Momentum One Day Cup 2019 after Titans registered 5 wickets win over them in the semi-final 1 and later went on to clinch the title. On the opposite, Lions had one of the worst seasons and finished at the bottom of the table with just two wins in ten encounters.
For tomorrow’s clash, Proteas batter Hashim Amla is set to open for Cape Cobras. Hashim Amla has been away from the field for a couple of weeks due to his father illness. He missed the ODI series and T20Is against Sri Lanka and Cape Cobras coach Ashwell Prince confirmed that he will be available for at least the opening fixture. Prince also confirmed that JP Duminy is recovering shoulder injury and will miss a couple of starting games for the Cobras.
While Cobras are yet to release their respective squads, let’s have a look at Lions’ squad, pitch report and venue stats.
