THE Cape Cobras and bizhub Highveld Lions are set to clash in the Momentum One-Day Cup Final at PPC Newlands on Sunday. The hosts earned a direct route to the final after an excellent regular season, which saw them top the table by virtue of winning seven out of 10 games, including five with bonus points. Coach Paul Adams acknowledged that this, along with a few other factors, do make them favourites for the title.
“We are playing at home and we have been playing very good cricket, so we will bring that confidence to the final,” he said. “We’ve had some time off away from the game, before regrouping again this week. “It’s been all about preparing and gearing ourselves up for this big game. Now we’re ready for it.”
The Cape side have named a similar squad to the one that has served them so well throughout the competition, with Richard Levi’s inclusion giving them further batting strength. Lions coach Geoffrey Toyana, whose side ended the regular season second on the table, has confirmed he is still sweating over the fitness of Temba Bavuma (back) and Eddie Leie (hamstring). Both are likely to miss out, though, having also missed the Qualifier against the Warriors in midweek.
Momentum One Day Cup Cobras vs Lions Final Match Prediction Tips 28 Feb 2016
Cape Cobras will win the toss and choose to ball first and win the match as well. The Lions have a wretched head-to-head record against the Cobras, winning just six out of 25 meetings, but Toyana feels it is an unfair reflection of his side. The Lions last won the title when they shared it with the Cobras back in 2012/13. However, their last outright title was way back in 2003/04.
