DOL vs CC Dream11 Prediction: The Dolphins have had an excellent start to the Momentum ODI Cup 2020 winning both their matches so far. They now have an opportunity to extend their winning run against the Cape Cobras, a side that has been a bit patchy in the matches it has played.
A stunning century from Grant Roelofsen allowed the Dolphins to chase down a stiff total against the Titans in their previous match. Chasing down 289 in under 40 over is never easy but that is exactly what the DLS adjusted task was in front of the Dolphins.
The team was also missing a few players because of South Africa’s national duty call-ups. Grant Roelofsen, though, took his opportunity and made sure that there was nothing left to chance as he scored 147 not out at a strike rate of 130.09
Sarel Erwee, Khaya Zondo, and Robbie Frylinck also played a couple of cameos to ensure that the run-rate never fell. With Vaughn van Jaarsveld and Marques Ackerman still to score runs in the tournament, the Dolphins batting lineup is shaping up very nicely.
Kerwin Mungroo, Imran Tahir, and Keshav Maharaj are all very impressive bowlers and are likely to come up with match-winning numbers in the coming one-dayer.
The Cape Cobras have won one and lost one match putting them in the middle of the table at this early stage. The Momentum ODI Cup is not a very long tournament and it can be very difficult to recover after falling behind. Pieter Malan, Zubayr Hamza, and George Linde give the Cape Cobras a decent amount of depth in the batting department. Dane Paterson, Dane Piedt, and Rory Kleinveldt are the players leading the bowling attack with the promising Thando Ntini in there for support as well. The bowling attack is not bad but it is not very threatening either.
Cape Cobras were set a target of 321 to win the match against the Lions but could only manage 271 in return
