Cobras top One-day log

2011-11-26 00:00

CAPE TOWN — The Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras moved to the top of the One-day Cup standings after a six-wicket win over the Chevrolet Warriors at Sahara Park Newlands yesterday.

Owais Shah, JP Duminy and Justin Ontong all contributed half-centuries as the Cobras reached 245 for four in 46.5 overs in reply to the Warriors’ 244 all out.

The victory saw the Cobras leapfrog the Warriors into first place on the log standings on 28 points, three ahead of the Warriors, with both teams having one group match left.

The Cobras made a rocky start to their run chase as they slipped to 19 for two with veteran paceman Makhaya Ntini removing Graeme Smith (2) and Andrew Puttick (12).

But Shah and Duminy combined for a 91-run third-wicket partnership.

Shah also achieved a fine personal milestone during his innings as he went past 10 000 List A runs.
