The Cross Pool match of the South Africa ODI 2020/21 will be held at Newlands in Capetown, played between Cape Cobras and Knights. The match will be kicked off on 16th March (Tuesday) at 14:00 (GMT+6).
The Cobras have yet to win this season, and it hasn’t been a good start for the team. They’ve played 6 matches thus far, with 2 losses and 4 draws. Throughout the season, their bowling performance has been quite average, and their failure to take 20 wickets in a game is the main reason for their current position. But they did have a great match with the bat last week and will come into this match with a high momentum.
The Knights, on the other hand, are currently leading in the Pool A points table. This season, they have won 3 of their 6 matches. They have put in an all-around performance, with everyone stepping up whenever they are faced with a crisis. Knights have 2 of the top 3 wicket-takers, which shows their ability and strength. They will aim to keep their winning streak and advance to the next round.
The weather forecast for Day 1 of this match between Cape Cobras and Knights looks promising. The temperature will stay around 22-23 Degrees Celsius with a clear sky throughout the day.
The Newlands is known for supporting pacers throughout the match, particularly a four-day match. This season, it’s also been a great wicket to bat on.
Average first innings score: 338 (Last two games played at this venue in this season)
