High-flying Dolphins facing tough Warriors test
Durban - Following a near flawless start to the Momentum One Day Cup for
the Hollywoodbets Dolphins, the second half of the campaign kicks off
with a showdown against the Warriors at the Pietermaritzburg Oval on
The KZN side has won four of itís first five games in the competition
and has picked up two bonus points along the way to sit at the top of
the log, however the KZN side has played one game more than the chasing
The Warriors are sitting in third place on the log with two wins, two
losses and a washout to their name and Dolphins assistant coach Quinton
Friend knows they are a good white ball unit.
"It's going to be another tough game this Sunday because we know the
Warriors are always a good side," Friend said. "They have brought in
Eddie Moore who has got off to a good start and is a dangerman up the
"They have got a well-balanced side with some really good batters and a
lot of experience in their bowling line-up with the likes of Andrew
Birch who has been around for a long time.
"We just need to make sure we have good gameplans in place against a
pretty good bowling attack."
The Dolphins managed to defend what could have been seen as a below par
183 at Newlands mid-week and Friend is satisfied with how the bowlers
have shaped up in the tournament so far.
"It has been very promising from the bowling unit, they have been
absolutely superb throughout the tournament so far.
"The whole squad is still very positive but the playersare trying to
remain calm and not get ahead of ourselves. We are just taking it game
for game at the moment and we want to make sure we build on this start.
"It's always nice to be at the top of the log but we want to take care
of all the small things and maintain a good culture within our squad."
The Dolphins lost to the World Sports Betting Cape Cobras via the
Duckworth/Lewis method in their only game at the Pietermaritzburg Oval
so far this season and will be hoping to put that right on Sunday.
Captain Keshav Maharaj has been a stand-out for the Dolphins this season
with both bat and ball while Grant Roelofsen continues a magic start to
his Dolphins white ball career.
