Cobras add RAM SLAM T20 to Trophy Cabinet

The Nashua Cape Cobras picked up their ninth trophy in six seasons as they beat the Chevrolet Knights by 33 runs to win the RAM SLAM T20 Challenge in front of a packed Newlands crowd.

It is the first time in four years that the Cobras have won the competition, but they have also clinched four four-day titles and three one-day trophies since the start of the 2009/10 season.

Omphile Ramela was the star of the final with the bat, hitting 54 in just 34 balls as the Cobras racked up 158 for four after winning the toss and electing to bat.


RAM SLAM T20: Classy Hendricks and Rossouw take Knights into final

The Chevrolet Knights booked their first RAM SLAM T20 final in six years as they beat the bizhub Highveld Lions by eight wickets in Sunday’s eliminator at Bidvest Wanderers.

The result means that the Knights will now play in the Champions League Twenty20 for the first time since the competition’s inaugural edition in 2009 - back when they were still known as the Eagles - and will meet the Nashua Cape Cobras in Friday’s final at Newlands.

The Knights showed composure with both bat and ball, with their two Proteas batsmen, Reeza Hendricks and Rilee Rossouw, showing their class in a 115-run partnership - a ground record for the second wicket - that allowed them to chase down a target of 149 with 13 balls to spare.


Big Bash League teams announced

A host of the world’s best T20 players are locked in for the fourth edition of the KFC T20 Big Bash League after team squads were finalised yesterday. A strong mix of short-format talent and entertainment will be on show over the school holidays after contracting across the League’s eight clubs ended yesterday at 2pm AEDT.

Game-changers like Jacques Kallis (Sydney Thunder), Aaron Finch (Melbourne Renegades), Kevin Pietersen (Melbourne Stars) and Andrew Flintoff (Brisbane Heat) will take the field alongside the next generation of Australian talent.


RAM SLAM T20: Rossouw and Gayle to play through the pain

Rilee Rossouw will continue to put aside his niggling injury concerns on Sunday as the Chevrolet Knights travel to Bidvest Wanderers to take on the bizhub Highveld Lions in the eliminator of the RAM SLAM T20.

Rossouw was withdrawn from the Proteas squad for Friday’s game against the Springboks at the same venue, but has made himself available for the all-important clash with the Lions, which will decide not only who takes on the Cobras in the final, but who will be South Africa’s second representative in the Champions League Twenty20 next year.


RAM SLAM T20: Lions secure home play-off

The RAM SLAM T20 semi-final between the bizhub Highveld Lions and the Chevrolet Knights will take place at Bidvest Wanderers on Sunday afternoon after the two sides saw their final league encounter lost to the weather just as it looked to be intriguingly poised.

The Knights had needed to win Wednesday’s game against the Lions at the Diamond Oval with a bonus point to leapfrog their opponents and secure a home semi-final, and gave themselves an opportunity to do so by posting 186 for seven in their 20 overs.

However, the game already been disrupted once during the Knights innings, and when lightning flashed around the ground with the Lions on 22 without loss from 2.2 overs in reply, another delay was necessary.


RAM SLAM T20: Cobras aim their big guns at the Warriors

The Nashua Cape Cobras will be using their RAM SLAM T20 clash with the Chevrolet Warriors at Boland Park on Wednesday as something of a dress rehearsal for next weekend’s home final as they bring their big guns back into the side.

Technically the Cobras may have nothing to gain from their final league fixture after they sewed up top spot on the table on Sunday, but coach, Paul Adams, wants to use the game to reintegrate Proteas, Hashim Amla and Dale Steyn, into the unit.

Amla and Steyn will turn out for their franchise for the first time this season, and will replace Andrew Puttick and Ferisco Adams in the Cobras side.


RAM SLAM T20: Knights mull over bonus point tactics

Chevrolet Knights may need to beat the bizhub Highveld Lions with a bonus point to make their RAM SLAM T20 encounter at the Diamond Oval count, but that does not mean the hosts will go out all guns blazing on Wednesday.

The Knights go into the final round of games trailing the Lions by four points and with a superior net run rate, but must take five points from the fixture to leapfrog their opponents and earn a home semi-final because they have won two games fewer.

Nevertheless, coach, Sarel Cilliers, will not be instructing his players to produce fireworks from ball one.
