Western Cape Cricket (Pty) Ltd is delighted to announce that tickets for this momentous game will open on Monday, 9 February 2015 at 2pm.
The Nashua Cape Cobras will host a fourth consecutive limited-overs final for the past two seasons at the Newlands Cricket Ground on Friday 13th February.
The Cobras, at the summit of the Momentum One Day Cup competition with 29 points after 10 matches, will meet the winner of the semi-final play-off between the Sunfoil Dolphins and The Unlimited Titans.
The Cobras won the Ram Slam T20 Challenge final in December 2014 by comprehensively beating the Chevrolet Knights by 33 runs in a pulsating match that drew a capacity Newlands-crowd.
Robin Peterson and Andrew Puttick have set the pace with ball and bat in the limited-over domestic showpiece to help set up a home-final. Peterson has captured 18 wickets in 9 matches at an average of 17.94 and is the leading wicket-taker in the Momentum One Day Cup competition.
Puttick has scored 583 runs in nine matches at an average of 72.87. A hall-mark of his batting has been his consistency, as he has compiled a century and five half-centuries in nine matches.
Nabeal Dien, chief executive of the Nashua Cape Cobras, paid tribute to the Newlands-based team. “We have captured nine trophies the past six seasons and have been consistently the most dominant franchise in South Africa.
“Justin Ontong, Paul Adams, Salieg Nackerdien and the rest of this team have established a winning culture which should be savoured.
“We won’t bask in the glory by becoming complacent,” he promised.
“Our feats would not have been possible without the unwavering support of the Newlands-faithful. Our passionate fans have propelled our team to new heights, and we wish to thank you for inspiring the Summer Champions.”
Ticket prices remains unchanged and Dien invited the fans to book early to avoid disappointment as the full-house signs might go up early at Newlands.
