Qaasim Adams and Dean Elgar had put the Hennops River team in a strong position on 201 for four after 41 overs in pursuit of 282 for nine scored by the hosts, but Wayne Parnell and Dane Paterson rallied superbly to spearhead a Cape Cobras-fightback.
Parnell took three for 64 on Friday against the Titans and added a splendid four for 40 in the eight-wicket win against the VKB Knights at Boland Park in Paarl on Sunday.
The left-arm swing bowler and Adams have worked on the biomechanics of his action and have amended a few technical hiccups.
Adams said he was impressed by Parnell’s pace and improved consistency.
The fast bowler operated at above 140 km/h and also bowled aggressively.
Adams said ultimately they want Parnell to become the best that he can be, and to represent South Africa again.
Robin Peterson, left-arm spinner of the Cape Cobras, took two for 44 and two for 28 the weekend. The Cobras have always required an attacking style by the left-arm spinner and he has responded positively to this request.
The Cobras will be without their national players when they and the Sunfoil Dolphins clash at Kingsmead in Durban on Friday. Stiaan van Zyl, Vernon Philander and Dane Vilas will be on a flight to India.
Andrew Puttick will return after a mouth infection and could possibly take the big gloves as well, while Rory Kleinveldt might also be set for a recall following a decision to rest him for the first three matches of the Momentum One Day Cup competition.
Van Zyl hammered an unbeaten 90 on Sunday, and formed a more than useful opening partnership with the in-form Richard Levi the weekend.
The Cape Cobras will host the Warriors at PPC Newlands on Sunday (25th October).
