RAM SLAM T20: Rabada refreshes Lions attack

Young quick, Kagiso Rabada, will make his first RAM SLAM T20 appearance this season as the bizhub Highveld Lions attempt to arrest their flagging form in the crucial last week of the competition.

Rabada has been allowed to rest by the Lions since he returned from representing the Proteas in a T20 series in Australia earlier this month, but will come back in for Friday’s clash against The Unlimited Titans at Senwes Park.

After winning their first five games in the tournament, the Lions have lost their last two and have surrendered first place in the standings.


RAM SLAM T20: Dolphins enter last chance saloon

The Diamond Oval will be the equivalent of the Last Chance Saloon for the Sunfoil Dolphins on Friday when they attempt to take down the Chevrolet Knights, their closest rivals for a playoff spot in the RAM SLAM T20.

Although the Dolphins remained in fourth place after Wednesday’s defeat to the Titans, it left them five points behind the third-placed Knights, having played a game more.

Victory over the Knights is, therefore, non-negotiable if the defending champions are to stay in the tournament.


RAM SLAM T20: Warriors can block Cobras' path to home final

User Rating: / 3

The Nashua Cape Cobras know that they must find the formula to crack the Chevrolet Warriors if they are to finish the RAM SLAM T20 round robin phase in the fashion required to secure a home final.

In a strange scheduling twist, the two sides will meet twice in six days over the last three rounds of the competition - first in a televised encounter at St. George’s Park on Friday night; then in Paarl on Wednesday.

The Cobras currently lead the table by two points with three games to play, but face a Warriors side that has found form in the second half of the tournament, and which will be motivated by the need for three straight victories to stay in the running for the playoffs.


RAM SLAM T20: Titans dent Dolphins' title defence

Qaasim Adams hit a career-best 76 to put a major dent in the Sunfoil Dolphins’ bid to defend their RAM SLAM T20 crown, as The Unlimited Titans registered a 19-run victory at Sahara Park Willowmoore.

Adams came to the crease with the Titans struggling on 17 for two in the fourth over, and with high winds from surrounding thunderstorms causing a fair bit of disarray around the ground.

The left-hander duly created some havoc of his own, hitting 11 boundaries in a 53-ball knock that carried the Titans to a formidable score of 176 for seven.


RAM SLAM T20: Dolphins aim to strengthen mental resolve

The Sunfoil Dolphins need to attain the right frame of mind on a more consistent basis if they are to overcome their indifferent form and finish in the top three of the RAM SLAM T20, captain Morne van Wyk believes.

The Dolphins have been the Jekyll and Hyde side of the competition thus far, achieving two of the biggest runs victories but also being bowled out for one of the lowest scores.

Such inconsistency has left them in fourth place on the table, five points behind the Knights in third, and Van Wyk confirmed they had been speaking about the mental side of the game ahead of Wednesday’s televised encounter with The Unlimited Titans at Sahara Park Willowmoore.


Amla to lead Proteas in Nelson Mandela Legacy Cup

Hashim Amla will lead the Proteas against the Springboks in the Nelson Mandela Legacy Cup at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium on Friday, 5 December 2014. He stands in for regular captain, Faf du Plessis, who has been advised a period of rest by the CSA Medical Team to recover from a hip injury.

AB de Villiers could also not be considered because of the rib injury that he suffered in Australia during the 4th ODI and will instead be the team’s coach while Faf du Plessis will manage the side. JP Duminy will join the SuperSport on-field commentary team as an analyst during the match.

Imran Tahir, Aaron Phangiso and JP Duminy remain on the injury list while Morne Morkel is not available for personal reasons.


RAM SLAM T20: Cobras edge ahead of Lions

User Rating: / 1

The Nashua Cape Cobras edged ahead in the race for a RAM SLAM T20 home final as an all-round performance saw them thump the bizhub Highveld Lions by 77 runs at Newlands on Sunday.

After Omphile Ramela (46) and Dane Vilas (51) had propelled the hosts to 154 for seven, the younger members of the Cobras attack took the key wickets as the Lions were shot out for just 77 in 15.3 overs.

As a result, the Cobras earned a bonus point and leapfrogged the Lions to take a two-point lead at the top of the table with three games to play.


RAM SLAM T20: Warriors slip up in final over

User Rating: / 1

The Chevrolet Warriors missed out on a crucial two points as they threw away an excellent position to tie an eight-over humdinger against The Unlimited Titans in the RAM SLAM T20 at SuperSport Park.

The Warriors were sitting pretty going into the last over of the game, with just six runs needed and Jon-Jon Smuts (37) and Simon Harmer (24) well set.

However, Harmer sliced the first ball from David Wiese to short third man, Smuts was run out off the second and the game went down to the final delivery, with Rusty Theron needing just a single to win it.


RAM SLAM T20: Levi takes a leaf out of Gayle's book

Richard Levi hammered one of the fastest fifties of the RAM SLAM T20 Challenge as the Nashua Cape Cobras beat the Sunfoil Dolphins by seven wickets in a 10-over game to move up to second on the table.

Levi went to his half-century in just 25 balls, narrowly slower than Chris Gayle’s 21-ball fifty against the Warriors two weeks ago, which ensured that the Cobras chased down a target of 85 with four balls to spare.

A lengthy rain shower at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead delayed the start of the game and reduced its length by half, and when it finally got underway the Dolphins threw everything at their visitors.
