HL vs CC Dream11 Prediction: Momentum ODI Cup 2020 is nearing the half-way mark and the teams would be getting more conscious of their positions on the league table. Lions would be taking on the Cobras at Senwes Park in their second faceoff of the season, with the first match witnessing the Lions surface meritorious by a margin of 49 runs.
The Lions have won two out of their three matches, comprehensively losing their most recent one against the Warriors, who are among the weaker sides of the tournament. A batting failure meant that the Lions could only get 221 in their fifty overs and were left with insufficient runs to try and defend.
Ryan Rickelton, the best batsman for the Lions so far, was run-out for 43 and the side could never really recover after that. Wihan Lubbe, Delano Poltgeiter, and Nono Pongolo managed to get some useful runs together which will raise hopes for more such performances moving forward.
The Lions would have been a bit disappointed at their result in the previous match. They were up against the Warriors, who are among the weaker sides of the tournament. A batting failure meant that the Lions could only get 221 in their fifty overs and were left with insufficient runs to try and defend. Aaron Phangiso, Wihan Lubbe, and Johannes Diseko were economical but it is clear that the Lions bowling attack is not going to blow anyone away
The Cape Cobras have been more inconsistent so far with two wins and two losses out of its four matches. The Cobras lost by 95 runs to the Titans while chasing down 302. But, they still possess quality batters in their armory namely – Zubayr Hamza, Pieter Malan, Janneman Malan, Kyle Verreynne, and George Linde. Bowlingwise, they have Rory Kleinveldt, Thando Ntini, Nandre Burger, and Jason Smith which give the Cape Cobras a solid core with some useful all-rounders to chip in as needed.
