Multiply Titans v WSB Cape Cobras

Going to PPC Newlands Stadium has always evoked a reaction from the Titans. Constantly, the men from the Cape bring out the best of the Sky Blues, and this was certainly the case in early 2017, in the Momentum One-Day Cup.

The Titans had made a slow start to the competition, losing a thrilling game to the Hollywoodbets Dolphins at home. The visit to Cape Town provided an opportunity to lay down some foundations for a trophy charge.

Enter Henry Davids and Jonathan Vandiar. Their stand of 313 for the opening wicket vaulted straight into the Titans history books.

Davids, ever on the offensive, drilled 163 from just 132 balls. Vandiar was no slouch either, as his 153 required just 124 balls.

They both smashed five sixes, in a three-hour assault that the Cobras had not seen coming. By the time they parted, the Titans were well on their way to a gargantuan total.

The Sky Blues would eventually rest on 400 for five in their allotted overs, and that sort of target was beyond the reach of most sides.

The Cobras were bowled out for 242, and the enormous, 158-run victory was just the shot of adrenalin that the Titans needed.

It sent them all the way to the final, where they got again scored heavily; 425 against the Warriors.

That saw them romp to yet another MODC success, continuing a fine tradition with the 50-over trophy in the franchise era.
