The 27th match of the Momentum One-Day Cup 2020 will be played between Titans and Cape Cobras at the Willowmoore Park in Benoni.
The match starts at 1:30 PM local time (11:30 AM GMT) (5:00 PM IST).
Cape Cobras are finding it difficult to mark their way back on the winning track as they have registered five consecutive defeats in the tournament. They are currently on the last position in the league table with only eight points. They are on the verge of getting knocked out from the tournament.
But, if they can manage two back to back victories with bonus points then things might change. Hence, they are expected to come out with some impressive performances in the upcoming clash against Titans.
Titans registered a brilliant victory in the previous game against Lions and will look to continue with the same momentum. They are just a couple of steps away from qualifying into the semi-final and, they will look to grab a win in the upcoming clash against Cobras.
They have a robust batting line-up that consists of Tony de Zorzi, Dean Elgar and Aiden Markram, who are in great form with the bat. So, these will be the players on which Titans are expected to bank upon going into their next encounter.
The weather forecast says that it will be partly clouded with no chances of rain on the match day. The wind will be blowing at a rate of 11 to 17 km/hr whereas the temperature will deviate between 16 and 26 Degree Celsius throughout the day according to Accuweather.
The track at Willowmoore Park is expected to go in favour of the batsmen. So far this ground has hosted only one game in this tournament in which the side batting first managed a score of 330+ runs but the side chasing ended up winning the game. So, it is mostly expected the side winning the toss will look to field first to be on the safer side.
