CSA T20 2019 Match 13 – Cobras vs Knights Fantasy Preview

We’re back to Newlands for another major CSA T20 game, this time there will only be one game played out, rather than the two or three that we’ve gotten accustomed to in recent days. Today, Match 13 and Cape Cobras will play host to Knights with the two having contrasting seasons thus far.

Cobras have won 3 of their 4 games this season, including a single bonus point which has put them atop the points table, whereas Knights haven’t managed a solitary win in their 4 games thus far. Today’s game sees Cobras beginning as favourites again. Keep reading this article for our complete PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy preview of this Cobras vs Knights game…

CSA T20 2019 Match 13 - Cobras vs Knights fantasy preview

Form (recent first):

Cobras: W, W, L, W

Knights: NR, L, NR, L


  • 10, 16, 2, 7, 32 – Hashim Amla’s scores since return to Cape Cobras.
  • Matches won batting first here – 29; second – 14.
  • Rory Kleinveldt has 19 wickets in his last 10 games for Cobras.
  • Average 1st innings score here – 149 runs.


All I can say is make Hashim Amla your fantasy team captain for this game. He had 4 innings with the Cobras and had a best score of just 16 in 4 innings. However, his last knock saw a run-a-ball 32 coming through and the fluency of that innings makes me believe there’s more to come from the veteran. Expect him to have a few big innings before the World Cup begins.

The experience of Rory Kleinveldt has had a huge role to play so far in this tournament, having returned with magical figures of 2/9 in the last game. He also has a swing with the bat so making him your captain or vice-captain isn’t the worst of ideas. Janneman Malan has three failures and a century so far. Back him to get another big score tonight.


Knights are still searching for their maiden win. Rudi Second and Andries Gous have both been in brilliant touch for the away side, right from the Momentum One Day tournament. They both come under the wicket-keeper section so you will only get one of them, but choosing your keeper from the Knights squad then becomes a must.

I’m making the big gamble of leaving out Ryan McLaren as he doesn’t fit my budget for this game, but instead, I’ve selected Patrick Kruger as an able young all-round replacement. Another interesting pick for your fantasy team is Shadley van Schalkwyk, who, prior to the last T20 he played, had 11 wickets in his previous 5 games for Knights.
