SUSPENDED: Cape Cobras skip Omphile Ramela

The winless Cape squad place last on the log.

Cape Cobras assistant coach Ashwell Prince says their players will have to do some deep soul-searching after their latest Sunfoil Series defeat to the Titans.

After four matches in the four-day series, the Cobras have not yet won a match and are in last place on the log.

Stiaan van Zyl, though, impressed the mentor with his knocks of 65 and 32 respectively.

As for his teammates, Prince says: “I believe 99 percent of the game is mental, and obviously, after a string of defeats, the team will be low on confidence.

“But the only thing a cricketer requires, is opportunity.

“There is only one place where you can remedy things, and that is not in the boardroom, in the change room or the nets.

“You must go and fix it in the middle.”

And Prince might look to new faces to turn it around, saying: “Remember, there are some good players currently not in the Cape Cobras squad.”

Meanwhile, skipper Omphile Ramela will miss Thursday’s match against the Dolphins after being suspended for two matches.
