• Cobras through to MODC semis

    The Cobras secured their place in the Momentum One-Day Cup semi-finals after claiming a 41-run victory over the Warriors via Duckworth Lewis on Saturday.

    In a must-win clash for both sides, the Warriors batted first in Potchefstroom.

    Rudi Second top-scored for the men from Port Elizabeth with 63, while Jon-Jon Smuts made 48 at the top of the order before the Warriors were bowled out for 262.

    Ziyaad Abrahams was the pick of the bowlers for the Cobras, claiming figures of 3-52 with Aviwe Mgijima picking up two scalps of his own.

    Fresh off their solid performance on Friday, brothers Janneman and Pieter Malan again made a solid start with the bat.

    Janneman smashed his way to 69 off 80 deliveries, while Pieter made 58 from the same amount of balls before rain interrupted play at Senwes Park.

    At 134-0, the Cobras were way ahead of the DLS par score after 26 overs when the players left the ground.

    It was enough for them to emerge victorious from the clash when the umpires called off the action.

    The Cobras join the Lions, Dolphins and Knights to contest the two semi-finals, which will get under way on Monday.
