The Nashua Cape Cobras will face the Chevrolet Warriors on Friday.

The <?xml:namespace prefix="st1" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags"?><place w:st="on"><?xml:namespace prefix="u1"?><place u2:st="on">Cape side will want to put their last defeat against the Gestetner Diamond Eagles behind them.

The Cobras were bowled out for a dismal 39 runs which became South Africa’s lowest total in Senior Limited Over’s cricket.

They were also chasing an elusive home win after they lost their last two home games.

The positive is that they were still third on the log and in line for a spot in the semi-finals.

Cobras coach Shukri Conrad named an unchanged team to play at Newlands.

Newcomer Gerswhin Rabie retains his place in the squad while Stiaan Van Zyl and wicketkeeper Ryan Canning will look to capture their form from previous games after the pair were both bowled out against the Eagles.

Charl Langeveldt was also fit for the clash after he sustained an injury when he split the webbing between his fingers.

The match begins 16:15.

Cobras Squad to face the Warriors: Andrew Puttick, Henry Davids, Stiaan van Zyl, Richard Levi, Justin Ontong(C), Ernon Philander, Ryan Canning (w/k), Claude Henderson, Rory Kleinveldt, Charl Langeveldt, Gurshwin Rabie.
