Cape Cobras had bowling troubles in their opening encounter, they chose to bat today. Hobart Hurricanes’ batsmen could not summon enough aggression, they were happy to bowl.
Both teams began with underwhelming losses and went for a reshuffle of personnel. Richard Levi slips in at the top of the Cobras on the back of 84 off 89, 68 off 43 and 62 off 66 in his last three matches for Northamptonshire in the Royal London One-Day Cup. So Stiaan van Zyl misses out.
Justin Ontong, the Cobras captain, believed the pitch might assist turn later on and swapped seamer Rory Kleinveldt with offspinner Dane Piedt. There was one forced change as well with Justin Kemp sidelined with an injured hand to give Sybrand Engelbrecht a go.
Paine stressed on better intent from Hurricanes’ top order. He mentioned the pitch looked “terrific” so opted not to tinker with the batting order. He did shake up the bowling pack by including left-arm spinner Xavier Doherty at the expense of Cameron Boyce. Seamer Joe Mennie takes over Evan Gulbis’ responsibilities for this game.
Cape Cobras: 1 Hashim Amla, 2 Richard Levi, 3 Omphile Ramela, 4 Dane Vilas (wk), 5 Justin Ontong (capt), 6 Sybrand Engelbrecht, 7 Vernon Philander, 8 Robin Peterson, 9 Dane Piedt, 10 Aviwe Mgijima, 11 Charl Langeveldt
