Dolphins and Titans start busy MODC weekend
Durban – Following a resounding opening Momentum One Day Cup win last
weekend, the Hollywoodbets Dolphins travel to SuperSport Park Centurion
to face the Momentum Multiply Titans in their second match of the
fifty-over competition on Friday.
The Dolphins have had a bright start to 2020 and followed their two
4-Day Domestic Series wins with a victory in their opening match of the
white ball competition. This Friday’s clash with the Titans will come
with another set of challenges as the men from Durban hope to stamp
their authority on the competition.
It has been a scorching week in Durban but captain Keshav Maharaj
believes the side are in good shape going into a busy weekend of action.
“It has been a tough week of training for us in the heat but the boys
have prepared really well this week,” Maharaj said.
“We’ve worked hard and are looking forward to the two games that we have
on this weekend starting with the Titans tomorrow in Pretoria.
“The two games this weekend are crucial for us in order to build some
momentum in the competition and making it a little easier for us to make
“You need to win five or six games to make the play-offs but we want to
be clinical and finish as high as possible on the log.”
The Dolphins and the Titans have met each other on a number of occasions
in white balls finals and Maharaj would like his side to lay down an
early marker by beating them in their own backyard.
“Taking on the Titans away from home is always a tough ask because they
play very well at home but our record is pretty decent there over the
last few years so I am hoping we can continue that form.”
The Dolphins go into the game with the same squad that took on the
Knights but Maharaj isn’t ruling out potential changes to the playing
“There is a chance that we will make some changes but we will need to
have a look at the surface and then assess the conditions from there.
“We have a good squad and the guys are excited going into this one on
Friday,” he added.
