“We don’t have someone who can operate at 150 km/h, but we have somebody that can bowl at 145 km/h (Parnell). We have quite a good bowling arsenal. It’s no use to bowl at 150 km/h and you are not skilful.
“We do possess a lot of skilful bowlers,” he said.
The Cape Cobras and the bizhub Highveld Lions will clash in a three-day match at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium from Saturday 19th September to Monday 21st September as the count-down to the season starts.
The Cobras and Tuks, the national club champions, will clash in two 50-over games on 23rd and 24th September.
The Warriors and the Cobras will be at loggerheads in two practice games in Oudtshoorn on 29 and 30th September.
Ramela pointed to a lack of intensity as a possible reason for the Cape Cobras’ lack of four-day success in the 2014/2015-season. Fielding lapses, and specifically dropped chances, proved expensive last season.
A key to address this area is meticulous preparation. There is no substitute, he said.
The desire and will to improve in all formats was evident from the training ground and team meetings the past few weeks, he added.
The Cape Cobras will leave for Gauteng on Friday morning.
