Sahara Park Newlands will be rocking on Friday 18 March 2011. That’s when the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras take on the Chevrolet Warriors in the final of the 2011 Standard Bank Pro20 competition. Expect an action packed game and hopefully lots of big hitting – both teams certainly have players who can deliver.
There were some fantastic matches in the early stages of the competition as the teams battled it out for a top four finish. The results came right down to the wire in the semifinal matches, with the Cape Cobras and Warriors knocking out the Nashua Titans and Nashua Dolphins respectively. It’s interesting to note that the teams who finished in third and fourth place on the log are the ones going through to the final. The Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras will host the final as they were the third placed team, ahead of the Chevrolet Warriors.
A place in the Standard Bank Pro20 final also means qualification for the annual Champion’s League tournament. Both teams will have the opportunity of participating in the lucrative competition, which sees top teams from around the world competing against each other in India.
Tickets for the Standard Bank Pro20 final are available from TicketPros and I’d suggest getting them ASAP. The prices range from R50 to R100 and the game starts at 18h00. I’m sure we’ll see a great crowd at Sahara Park Newlands as the fans get behind the local team. Let’s look forward to a superb game of cricket. Go Cobras!
