The Matches St George's Park - Fiery Cape Cobras Strike Early
Fiery Cape Cobras Strike Early
Neale Emslie

The familiar spectre of batting collapses continued to haunt the Warriors as they tottered to 38 for four at the close of the second day of their Supersport Series cricket match against the Cape Cobras at Sahara Oval St George’s yesterday.

The slump in the day’s final 20 overs by the Eastern Cape side threatened to undermine a fine bowling performance which saw them restrict the visitors to 211 for nine declared. This was in reply to the Warriors' first innings of 263.

The 52-run first innings lead was extended to an overall 90 by the end of play.
