CAPE TOWN - The Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras have named an unchanged side for their RAM SLAM T20 clash against the Unlimited Titans at Sahara Park Newlands on Wednesday night, keeping faith with the same eleven that crushed the Sunfoil Dolphins last Sunday.

Cobras coach Paul Adams praised his side, who have won five out of their six RAM SLAM matches so far to see them top the log by nine points.

"The combinations we have going have been good for us. None of our national players are resting so everyone is available to play. The team are in a good space at the moment, and tonight is going to be a big game, as it always is against the Titans."

Adams added that he loves having the Proteas players in his star-studded line-up.

"They play at a great intensity, and just having them around and working with them is a massive plus and an opportunity that we have to grab. There's a great culture in the squad at the moment, with everyone feeding off each other."

Cobras spinner Sunil Narine says that the team must not get ahead of themselves in spite of their lofty position on top of the RAM SLAM log, but added that the Cobras are fully focussed on winning their remaining games.

"Being on top gives you a lot of leeway. But the guys are still keen on winning, if not all, at least three of the next four games. It's still a tough challenge, but we're going to make the best of it."

West Indian Narine, the number one ranked T20 bowler in the world, says coach Paul Adams has had a good influence on him since his arrival in Cape Town.

"He's a good coach because he relaxes you and lets you play your game. He finds out exactly what you need and helps you to make the best use of it."
