“We just need to show more intent and increase our intensity,” he added.
Puttick has smashed 394 runs at an average of 98.50 in the first five matches of the competition. His consistency has been extraordinary, as he has struck a century and four half-centuries in setting up the Cobras’ healthy lead on the points table.
“The transition won’t be difficult, as most players have a solid base and have been spending a lot of time at the wicket and on the pitch,” he added.
“Technically, I have been well balanced. I have been getting into good scoring positions and I have struck the ball nice and late,” he said about his form.
Puttick and Richard Levi form a potentially lethal opening partnership. They rotate the strike excellently, have a great understanding, and also complement each other well.
Levi is adventurous, enterprising and explosive, especially on the leg-side, where his short-arm jabs provide spectators with catching practice whenever the ball is misdirected slightly.
Puttick can hit the boundaries through point, extra cover and midwicket, and can increase the rate against fast bowlers and spinners when required.
“If I can score another 400 runs in the competition, I might have done enough to get us to the final, but I will take it one game at a time,” said Puttick.
