Cape Cobras win toss, ask Mumbai Indians to bat first

Having topped their group, Mumbai Indians would like to win the match against Cape Cobras which will ensure a semifinal berth AFP

Bengaluru: Sep 29, 2011

Cape Cobras put Mumbai Indians in to bat in a Champions League T20 Group A fixture at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on Friday.

The in-form Mumbai Indians will be hoping to continue their winning run in the Champions League Twenty20 tournament and book a semifinal berth when they take on Cape Cobras here on Friday.

Having won both their previous matches in the league stage, the Harbhajan Singh-led Mumbai outfit is at the moment sitting comfortably on the top of the table with four points and a win here tomorrow would ensure their uninterrupted passage to the next level.

Cape Cobras, meanwhile, with a win and a loss from two matches, would certainly need a victory to keep their hopes alive of making it to the semi-final stage. (IANS)
