CAPE TOWN. – A slightly more positive approach in the middle, capitalizing on explosive starts and a continuation of their excellent bowling would be part of the success recipe for the Cape Cobras in their crucial Ram Slam T20 Challenge at PPC Newlands against The Unlimited Titans on Friday, said Robin Peterson, injured stalwart of the Cobras.

Peterson said the bowling of the Cape Cobras is spot on and the fielding unit has definitely made a step up in their last few Ram Slam T20 Challenge games.

Wayne Parnell is getting back into the type of form that has made him a South African strike force.

Richard Levi has had the Cobras off to flying starts.

“One or two of the guys are just a bit tentative (in the middle) and scratchy. When you get in good positions, are positive and look to hit the ball, then it generally goes into the gaps. But when you try and deflect it, then it is when you struggle to get off strike,” he said.

Peterson said the batting could be a bit more structured after the fall of the first wicket.

The Cape Cobras have been on an attractive upward curve the past two matches by beating the KVB Knights with a splendid cohesive batting effort, while they also edged the table-topping Sunfoil Dolphins with a morale-boosting victory thanks to the 4-20 by Parnell and Levi’s pyro-technics.

Peterson will undergo a medical examination on Friday to review his rehabilitation from a finger injury.
