The dynamic and all-conquering Nashua Cape Cobras booked a home-final in the Ram Slam T20 Challenge competition on Sunday and will seek domestic T20-glory at Newlands Cricket Ground on Friday 12th December.
While the Cape Cobras want to atone for their heart-breaking 2-run loss in the domestic T20-final last season, Cobras fans would want to ascertain that they book seats early before they see the dreaded Full House-sign go up.
Sales to the public will open on Thursday (4th December) at 09h00 at Newlands and fans must get their hands on the treasured tickets early as it is bound to be a sell-out.
Tickets will go on sale at R80 for adults, R60 for adults on the grass embankments, R60 for pensioners and R40 for school children.
The exciting brand of cricket played by the Summer Champions, the Cobras, and their remarkable winning feats (losing only one of their first nine matches and winning seven, of which three were bonus-point victories) are bound to attract a vast crowd.
Energized by the exuberance of a group of youthful newcomers (including Dane Paterson, George Linde and Ferisco Adams) and powered by the explosive hitting of Richard Levi and Kieron Pollard, the Cobras have steamrolled their way to the final on Friday 12th December before the start of the final league-game.
Perhaps their exciting mix of pace and a spin duo, as well as belligerent and sometimes composed hitting up front by Levi, Puttick and (Omphile) Ramela, were at the heart of the Cobras’ Ram Slam T20 Challenge which have seen them qualify for the Champions League Twenty20 for a second consecutive season.
“We are extremely proud of the way in which the Cobras, led by the experienced and wily Justin Ontong, and coached by the successful Paul Adams, have done the fans proud in ensuring a home-final despite their ranks being depleted by injury and the loss of international stars,” said André Odendaal, chief executive officer of Western Cape Cricket.
“We believe this Cobras-team have the skills, the quality and the character to go all the way.”
