‘Cobra’s can’t get it together’

STAND: Stiaan van Zyl

Swak Cape squad get spun out in innings defeat

The  Cape Cobras are rooted to the bottom of the Sunfoil Series table after their third defeat of the season.

The Titans buried the troubled Newlands side in with a painful innings and 50-run pak slae within three days.

The home side could only manage 235 and 115 in their challenge to the Titans’ first-innings 400 and started Saturday on 37/3 and needing a further 128 to make the Titans bat again. But the Cobras just couldn’t get things together  —  only Stiaan van Zyl resisted (65 & 32).

Titans spinner Shaun Berg was at the heart of the visitors’ success, claiming a superb 5/25 in 10 overs.

The 30-year-old also took 5/88 in the first innings to end with match figures of 10/113.
