CC vs DOL Dream11 Fantasy Preview and Prediction:
Hosts Cape Cobras will have their task cut as they aim to climb up the Momentum One-Day Cup table by beating table-toppers Dolphins.
Although the Cobras have batted pretty well in all their five matches, the bowling attack has let them down quite a bit. This was particularly seen when the side representing the Western Cape region went down against the Highveld Lions on Sunday. Zubayr Hamza’s monumental 156-run knock helped Cobras post a total of 304-8 after being asked to bat first but even such a huge score wasn’t defendable for them.
With Dane Paterson, Rory Kleinveldt and Thando Ntini all going for more than six runs per over, it turned out to be an easy chase for Lions.
Meanwhile, a cracking bowling effort led by skipper Keshav Maharaj and Robbie Frylinck helped Dolphins bowl out Knights for a paltry 134 in the last game. Even though Dolphins lost four wickets during the chase, the in-form Grant Roelofsen’s fifty ensured a comfortable victory in the end.
In the reverse fixure at Pietermaritzburg, it was the Cobras who managed to sneak in a 5-run victory via the DLS method. Zubayr Hamza was yet again the star of that day as he came up with a fantastic century.
Given these results, this game could be a tight affair with Cobras’ batting might helping them to have a slight upper hand with respect to Wednesday’s match.
A delightful sunny day is in the offing for Wednesday as a maxmimum temperature of 27-degree celsius has been predicted. Also, there is literally no chance for rain interruption at any point on this match-day.
In the first match of the tournament between Cobras and Titans, the visiting batsmen showed how good the surface is for batting as they piled on 302/4. Although Cobras suffered a big loss batting second, there should be no demons in the wicket. If anything, the pitch might just slow down a little in the second inning.

CC vs DOL Dream11 Fantasy Picks:
Zubayr Hamza: Is there any doubt about picking Zubayr Hamza as a captaincy option. The prodigious Cobras skipper has been in scintillating form right from the beginning of this tournament. In just five matches, Hamza has already scored 457 runs with two hundreds and two fifties.
Thando Ntini: Although young Ntini is just getting used to top-level domestic cricket, the fast bowler has impressed with his wicket-taking ability for the Cobras. So far, Ntini has 11 scalps to his name from just five games.
Grant Roelofsen: Just like how Hamza has been terrific for the Cobras until now, Dolphins’ wicket-keeper batsman Grant Roelofsen has also been on fire with 293 runs from four games. With the other Dolphins batsmen not doing so well, Roelofsen will be a key wicket for Cobras.
Keshav Maharaj: A large reason for Dolphins’ brilliant start to the tournament has been the team’s efficient bowling attack. Skipper Keshav Maharaj has also contributed a lot to that tag with seven scalps from four games. Maharaj also displayed his underrated batting ability with 43 runs against Knights with the pivotal knock helping Dolphins to register a 94-run win.
