The Mzansi Super League (MSL) may only be three games old for the Cape Town Blitz but like their Cape-based First-Class franchise‚ the Cobras‚ they are asking serious questions of their competitors.
On Wednesday evening‚ they saw off the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants to add to their wins against the Tshwane Spartans and the Durban Heat in their opening two matches.
They are top of the MSL log with 13 points‚ eight clear of the second-placed Jozi Stars.
It has been a round team effort but another youngster in Janneman Malan stood up for the Cape Town side.
His 39-ball 57 was the bedrock of their 175/6 that proved to be too much for the Giants even though a floodlight failure reduced the chase to 16 overs and 145.
The Blitz‚ coached by Cobras mentor Ashwell Prince‚ has a strong Cobras flavour to it allied with strong international experience.
