Momentum One Day Cup 2019 | CC vs KTS Dream11, 7th Match Prediction Cape Cobras vs VKB Knights Match Preview | Who Will Win Today's Match
Where? Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein
When? 19th February | 5:00 PM IST
VKB Knights will host Cape Cobras in the 7th match of the Momentum One Day Cup at Bloemfontein tomorrow. Both the teams need a win desperately as they find themselves in the bottom 2 of the pile. The Knights have 2 points from 2 games, while Cape Cobras are yet to open their account as they lost their only game so far.
Despite being one of the strongest teams in the Momentum One Day Cup, Cape Cobras are struggling at the start of the tournament. The Cobras lost their opening game of the campaign at home to Warriors in a thrilling game that saw the visitors win with a ball to spare. Understandably, the result has put extra pressure on Cape Cobra to win their upcoming match against VKB Knights.
Even though Cape Cobras is expected to win this game, their task won't be a simple one as they will be without their star players. According to reports, JP Duminy, Hashim Amla and Vernon Philander won't be available for the fixture. JP Duminy isn't feeling strong in his shoulder and the Physiotherapist of Cape Cobras said, “Proteas all-rounder JP Duminy’s throwing is not strong enough as a result of his shoulder injury and he won’t be considered for selection for the match against the VKB Knights on Tuesday.”
He added. “Duminy’s batting is looking as strong as ever but he feels uncertain about his bowling and his fielding. He prides himself in his throwing arm and his ability to throw himself around in the field.”
The Knights began their tournament by receiving a thumping by the Titans, where they lost by 9 wickets. Much to their dismay, their second fixture – against Lions – was abandoned due to rain. The upcoming game on Tuesday will be the third game for VKB Knights and they will be eager to register their first win in it.
The hosts will surely take confidence from the fact that Cape Cobras won't be at their best because of some significant absentees.
