CSA T20 2019 Match 3 – Lions vs Cobras Fantasy Preview

Lions and Cape Cobras are set to face off in Match 3 of the 2019 CSA T20 Challenge, with both being highly successful teams in this tournament in the past. Both teams had a mediocre outing in the 50-over tournament and will be looking to have a better 20-over tournament.

Lions had just 2 wins in 10 games in the 50-over tournament while Cape Cobras reached the semi final and lost to Titans. If that’s any indicator, Lions are going to have a tough time getting past Cobras here. Keep reading this article for a complete PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy preview of this game…

CSA 2019 Match 3 - Lions vs Cobras fantasy preview


  • The average 1st innings score here is 164 runs.
  • The highest successful chase here is 236/6 by Windies vs South Africa.
  • Head to head in the last 5 encounters, Lions lead Cobras 3-2.


The Cobras team is a star studded one where coach Ashwell Prince recently announced the return of Hashim Amla, who will open for the team after missing cricket due to his father’s illness over the last one month. Similarly, JP Duminy is recovering from shoulder injury and while he won’t play today, he may be available after a couple of games.


Rassie van der Dussen and Reeza Hendricks at the top of the order for Lions is something that will boost the team, but it’s their bowling attack that could be worrisome. Aaron Phangiso brings in so much of experience, but apart from him, I don’t see a lot of threat from this attack. Pick international players and all-rounders as your captain and vice-captains.
