Engelbrecht, though, was quick to endorse the Cobras as a good fielding unit. “We are one of the better units in South Africa. We do more things right and seldom falters,” he added.
The young all-rounder was one of the standout-performers of the Cobras in their previous two games.
He scored 74 in a 159-run partnership with Dane Vilas at St. George’s Park in Port Elizabeth in a closely contested four-day game against the Chevrolet Warriors.
Engelbrecht slammed an unbeaten 47 off 48 balls with five boundaries and a six to set up a five-wicket win for the Cobras against the bizhub Highveld Lions at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium on Saturday.
“I have been striking the ball well the last couple of seasons, but you cannot get it right every time,” he said. “I batted well in Potchefstroom against the Lions as well, but could not convert it.
His bowling has had some good moments, but it has been a bit up and down to get used to his new action, he added.
The remodelled action has yielded results lately, and Engelbrecht in tandem with Robin Peterson have caused a few batting implosions in the middle orders.
If Peterson, aided by Engelbrecht, can continue this trend, the Cobras will consolidate their healthy lead at the summit of the Momentum One Day Cup log with another victory against The Unlimited Titans at the Newlands cricket ground on Friday.
