The Nashua Cape Cobras' captain, Thami Tsolekile, will be back in action to lead his team against Fidentia Warriors in the maiden final of the MTN Domestic Championship in Cape Town today.

Tsolekile did not feature in the semifinal clash against Nashua Dolphins at Sahara Park in Newlands last week.

He was part of the South African sixes squad that won the Hong Kong Sixes tournament after beating Pakistan by 12 runs in Hong Kong last weekend.

The Cobras and the Warriors' clash is scheduled for Newlands in the afternoon and is expected to be filled with plenty of excitement.

Russel Adams, the Cobras' manager, confirmed that Tsolekile will be included in the starting lineup.

"Though his absence had little impact on our semifinal clash against the Dolphins last weekend, we hope his presence will strengthen the team,'' said Adams.
