Mohali: Cape Cobras on Friday held their nerves at key moments as they outwitted Barbados Tridents in a thrilling 'Super Over' contest in the Champions League T20, here on Friday to keep their slender hopes of qualifying for the semifinals alive. (Scorecard)
Chasing a fighting target of 175, Cobras started in a whirlwind fashion only to lose momentum and finally scramble home at 174 for five to tie the scores. Jonathan Carter's brilliant unbeaten 111 for Tridents went in vain as the South African outfit came up trumps in a pulsating affair.
In the 'One Over Eliminator' or 'Super Over' Cobras managed to score 11 with Dane Vilas hitting a boundary off Ravi Rampaul. In reply, Tridents could only manage 10 in the end giving Cobras their first win in the tournament as offie Sybrand Engelbrecht bowled a tight last over.
