“Disappointing loss to Northerns, last week, but there is no reason to panic yet. We are quite confident in the group of the players we have at our disposal,” he elaborated.
“We have had some time to reflect and make sure that we regroup for the North West encounter but we need to ensure that we execute when we’re on the field of play.”
WP management will take many positives from the Northerns match, with the like of Jessie Christensen showing grit in the One Day game with a stellar 98 (91 balls) and speedster Thando Ntini performing to a level which has seen him receive the nod from the World Sports Betting Coach Cape Cobras Coach Ashwell Prince for the CSA Franchise 4 Day Domestic Series match currently underway against the Dolphins in Pietermaritzburg.
WP have been boosted with the news that wicketkeeper/ batsman, Isaac Dikgale, has been cleared to play on Thursday, after suffering a groin injury on the second day of the three-day clash, while opener Jack Newby makes his comeback from a long injury.
“We are delighted to have Newby back after a lengthy period. We will have to monitor him carefully while also managing Dikgale’s groin in the coming days,” he concluded.
