Bangalore, Oct 4(ANI): South African domestic cricket team, Cape Cobras, arrived in Bangalore on Sunday to take part in the Champions League Twenty20 tournament, which begins on October 8.

Addressing the media Cape Cobras captain Andrew Puttin expressed their eagerness to take on the teams for the tournament, and said that his players would have to acclimatise to the situations quickly.
"Not all of us have played in India, so we have to adapt to the condition quickly. But, we have got players who have played at the international stage, so that could be an advantage as well," Puttin said.
While, all-rounder J. P Duminy highlighted that the team has a good mix of experienced and young players, which would help them to perform well in the tournament.
"I think we have got a good balance at the moment. Now, its just about us putting the performance where it counts," Duminy said.
