Dolphins vs Cape Cobras Predictions


The Dolphins are in decent form as they head into this encounter. They also have in-form players and more all-rounders, which offers them more depth than the Cobras. My best bet is for the Dolphins to claim a victory at home.

  • Dolphins David Miller’ scored 85 runs in his last T20 match.
  • Dolphins reached the final of the 2021 Momentum Cup.
  • Dolphins have won 4 of their last 6 T20 matches against the Cape Cobras.
  • Cape Cobras’ Kyle Verreynne has scored 48 & 50 runs in his last 2 limited overs matches.

Head to Head


The Cape Cobras have a 14-13 advantage in 27 T20 meetings with the Dolphins.

In their last CSA T20 Challenge meeting in 2019, the Dolphins won comfortably by five wickets.

Dolphins Form


The Dolphins will be eager to start their CSA T20 Challenge campaign after sharing the Momentum Cup. Despite that being a 50-over format, players in form often transcend the various formats.

The Durban-based side have failed to taste CSA T20 Challenge glory since the 2013-14 season, but will have home ground advantage for the new campaign.

Batsman David Miller scored 85 runs in his last T20 innings. That knock was for South Africa against Pakistan less than a week ago, so he will be in a confident mood.

Dolphins Injuries & Team News


The Dolphins will be captained by Keshav Maharaj and the skipper will have a massive role to play. As a spin bowler in home conditions, he could be the key to success.

Other internationals include David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo and Khaya Zondo. Sarel Erwee toured Pakistan with the national team but never made his debut. 

Cape Cobras Form


The Cape Cobras struggled in the Momentum Cup recently. They were defeated at the semi-final stage, a stage they reached thanks to most of their games being called off due to bad weather.

The Cobras last won this tournament 2015 and will fancy their chances this year.

Cape Cobras Injuries & Team News


The Cobras will be led by former Titans opening batsman, Tony de Zorzi. International players such as Zubayr Hamza, George Linde and Kyle Verreynne will be their key players.

It is on the bowling front where the Cape side look a bit short on quality. Nandre Burger and Corbin Bosch will need to step up and show their qualities.
