After a promising start in the CSA T20 Challenge, Warriors would look to consolidate their position when they meet Cobras at Boland Park on Friday. Warriors kick-started their season with a tight win over Titans while the second game was washed out due to rain. With 6 points on the table, Warriors are sitting at the top.
Meanwhile, Cape Cobras also opened their account on the very first game in the competition. However, the margin of their win over Lions was too little and they would want to put a stronger effort to get home with ease.
