• MVP 7: Richard Levi

    Richard Levi has been at the forefront of the Cape Cobras success this season in the Ram Slam twenty20 competition.

    Richard Levi has led from the front for the Cape Cobras at the top of the order this season. He has thrashed opposition bowling attacks to all parts of the ground with his full range of shots and brutal power.

    Levi has scored 391 runs off 273 balls at an average of 43.44. Levi’s strike rate for the competition is 143.22, he has hit 37 fours and 20 sixes in his nine innings so far. He has struck four fifties in his nine innings, with a top score of 88 against the Warriors, when he and Andrew Puttick put on a record 140 for the first wicket a week ago at St George’s Park.

    Levi became the competitions top run-scorer when he hit 22 off 21 balls against the Warriors in Paarl. The Cobras crushed their opponents by nine wickets with Hashim Amla and Dane Vilas taking the home team to victory with 11 balls to spare.

    Levi will be a key performer in next weeks final, if the Cape Cobras are to become the Ram Slam twenty20 champions when they host the winner of the semi-final between the Lions and Knights at Newlands.

    With Levi performing so consistently at provincial level and helping the Cobras qualify for the champions league next year, surely he is in line for a recall to the Proteas twenty20 squad in the not too distant future.
