Cape Cobras 245 for 5 (Levi 84, Shah 83) beat Warriors 242 for 9 (Prince 63, Langeveldt 5-45) by five wickets

Cape Cobras chased down 243 with five wickets to spare to win the Franchise 1-Day Cup final against Warriors in Cape Town.

Cobras chose to bowl and went ahead early in the match when Charl Langeveldt knocked over Arno Jacobs and Colin Ingram in the same over - the seventh of the innings. Langeveldt went on to take a five-for, as none of the Warriors batsmen managed to build on starts. Ashwell Prince was the topscorer with 63; no one else got a half-century, though seven others got into double-digit scores. Warriors finished with 242 for 9.

The chase was steered by solid knocks from Richard Levi and Owais Shah. Opening the innings, Levi made 84 off 111, while Shah hit 83 from 109. After the pair was dismissed, quick cameos from Justin Ontong and Mark Boucher took the side home in the 49th over. Langeveldt was named Man of the Match.

Levi can't now be far off at all from selection for the national side in the shorter forms of the game.He's had a consistently strong season so far and a continuation of this must see him picked for the Sri Lankan games. Keep up the good work etc.
