Cape Cobras moved to second place in the competition with their second win, beating Warriors by 18 runs in a day-night match in Port Elizabeth. JP Duminy and Justin Ontong lifted the Cobras to 160 before a tight-opening spell from their seamers made it difficult for Warriors to chase down the score.

Cobras chose to bat first and lost Hashim Amla early for 1. A stand of 56 for the third wicket between Ontong and Duminy got them going. Ontong made 37 before he was bowled by JJ Smuts. Duminy made a run-a-ball 45 before he was caught off Lundi Mbane. Late hitting by Dane Vilas and Robin Peterson lifted Cobras to 160.

Warriors were kept in check early in their chase by Rory Kleinveldt and Beuran Hendricks who conceded just two boundaries between them in the first four overs. The Warriors slipped to 74 for 7, with Davy Jacobs playing the lone hand. Jacobs smashed six sixes, including three off Justin Kemp in the penultimate over, but it came too late as it left Warriors still needing 25 off the final over. Jacobs remained unbeaten on 62.

Duminy should better get back to form asap, he hasn't done anything lately to justify his selection. He's one batsman who hasn't delivered the goods in a long time since his comeback. Its either he delivers against Australia or its bye bye

Hopefully Duminy get some form for the up and coming Ozzies series, I thought he played as a spinner in the last test series cose even Steyn scored more runs than him and Rohit Sharma.
