The 6th match of the CLT20 2014
will be played between Cape Cobras
and Hobart Hurricanes
. Here is the preview of the match between Hobart Hurricanes and Cape Cobras. The match will start at 4pm (IST) at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium , Hyderabad. The pitch has supported the spinners to an extent and this might not be a big factor as none of the teams are spin reliant.
CAPE COBRAS: In the absence of Duminy also, the team has enough firepower in the batting lineup . The likes of Hshim Amla and Richard Levi can give a sparkling start to the innings and then the middle order can carry over . Stiaan van Zyl is a guy to watch out for. Justin Ontong is famous for his hard hitting abilities and he along with Justin Kemp can help the team to accelerate. The team has got some useful T20 all rounders, with Robin Peterson and Vernon Philander capable of hitting some lusty blows as well. Their bowling will be led by Charl Langedveldt , who is a very good death bowler too. Philander will be expected to provide initial breakthroughs. Robin Peterson will lead the spin attack.
Hobart Hurricanes: Led by Tim Paine, this team depends on some key individuals. In the batting department , they have got some good power hitters , right from the top order. Ben Dunk, Aiden Blizzard and Travis Birt are big hitters who have proved themselves . Tim Paine and Shoaib Malik will be stabilising the innings . Their main strength is their fast bowling , which includes the likes of Doug Bollinger, Ben Hilfenhaus and Ben Laughlin , all 3 can win a game on their own. Xavier Doherty did not play the previous game and the reason is still not clear. Hilfenhaus and Bollinger will open the bowling and leave the middle and end overs to Ben Laughlin w, who is a death specialist.
Cape Cobras have a 60-40 chance of winning the game in their favour, simply because of their batting.
Cape Cobras have won the toss and elected to bat first.
