POTCHEFSTROOM - The Cape Cobras gained a significant advantage in the race for the Sunfoil Series title, just by getting on the field at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom on Friday.
The Cobras picked up 2.34 bonus points on the second day of their match against the Highveld Lions, while the other major contenders for the championship; the table toppers coming into the final round of matches, the Warriors, the Titans and the defending champions Knights, were frustrated by rain for the second consecutive day in Durban and Centurion.
As a result, the Cobras now top the competition’s log - as it stands.
Sent into bat after Stephen Cook won the toss, the Cobras notched up 217, by no means a hefty, match winning total, but those 2.34 points before the other two matches have tossed will be crucial.
The talented young right hander Zubayr Hamza top scored for the visitors with 57, in what were, difficult conditions.
