Toss won by Cape Cobras and their captain decided to put Knights to bat. Knights made this task as an opportunity and made 184 runs with the help of Kruger’s 74 and few twenty’s by their 3 batsmen. Dane Paterson took 3 wickets while Goerge Linde and Jason Smith took 2 wickets.
Cape Cobras had in the mind that this target might be away from their reach. They were 3 for 32 inside 5 overs. From that position it wasn’t easy for their middle and late order batsmen. Only Keegan Peterson and Goerge Linde could cross 30 runs mark, while others were out of shape. Bowlers of Knights did well to restrict cobras at 146 runs only. Marchant De Lange was their pick of bowlers. He took 3 wickets and his spell was decisive, rest of the bowlers also picked up wickets to give them an impossible victory. In CSA T20 Challenge, we have two awards, Batsman of the Match and Bowler of Match. Batsman of the match Kruger (Knights) and Bowler of the match Award was given to Marchant de Lange (Knights) respectively
Knights 184 for 8 (Kruger 74, Paterson 3-40)
