Cape Cobras need 126 runs to win
Cape Cobras produced a disciplined bowling performance with paceman Monde Zondeki inflicting the early blows to restrict Victoria Bushrangers to 125 for five in a Champions League Twenty20 quarterfinal League B match shortened by three overs here today.
After a bomb scare delayed the start by one hour and 40 minutes and reduced the match to a 17-over-a-side affair, Cobras bowlers maintained a stifling line and length to make the Victorian batsmen's life miserable.
Electing to bat, Victoria got off to a disastrous start when fast bowler Zondeki (2/21) scalped both the openers Brad Hodge and Rob Quiny in the very first over.
Quiny (0) failed to negotiate a rising delivery off Zondeki and offered a skier to Vernon Philander at fine-leg region, while Hodge (0) also returned in the third ball of the over, leaving the Australian side struggling at none for two wickets.
