Cobras put Eagles at bay

Cape Town - A seventh-wicket century partnership between Robin Peterson and Omphile Ramela enabled the Cobras to post a respectable first innings total of 231 on the first-day SuperSport match against the Diamond Eagles at Newlands on Thursday.

After a batting collapse, which saw the Cobras reduced to 85 for six at one stage, Peterson and Ramela set about repairing the early damage before the innings closed in the 72nd over.

At the close, the visitors from Bloemfontein had compiled 72 without loss in just over an hour, with Reeza Hendricks and (45 not out) and Dean Elgar on 45 and 21 respectively.

Robin Peterson who signed for English county outfit Derbyshire as a Kolpak player (he replaced Charl Langeveldt) earlier this week celebrated his good fortune with a flurry of boundaries - 12 in all, in his 90-ball knock.

The spinner's seventh-wicket stand with Ramela was worth 101 runs and advanced the side's innings from 85 for six to 186 for seven.

Just before the Cobras innings closed tail-ender Rory Kleinveldt treated the Eagles' attack with scant regard as he struck four fours in his cameo 23-ball knock of 29 not out.

Medium paceman Ryan Bailey was the most successful of the visitors attack picking up three for 46.
