The Recreation Ground in Oudtshoorn will be the venue for one of the penultimate round matches in the Cricket South Africa Four Day franchise competition when the WSB Cape Cobras will take on the Multiply Titans. The match starts on Monday 21 January 2019.
It will be the Titans, with the former Protea wicket keeper legend Mark Boucher as coach – first visit to the Recreation Ground.
They are the defending champions in this competition and will field players with international experience like Heino Khun, Farhaan Behardien, Chris Morris and Henry Davids.
