Dolphins out to consolidate MODC top spot
Durban - With five wins from six games in the Momentum One Day Cup to
date, the Hollywoodbets Dolphins will be hoping to continue their
log-leading form when they take on the Momentum Multiply Titans at
Hollywoodbets Kingsmead Stadium on Thursday.
It's been a dominant campaign from the Dolphins so far who are well clear
at the top of the log at the moment, however the Imperial Lions are two
wins away from catching them, with two games in hand, so the Dolphins need
make sure they keep their focus.
The Titans would have been disappointed in their loss to the Dolphins
earlier in the competition as Grant Roelofsen scored a match-winning 147
not out to help his side to a memorable win.
Captain Keshav Maharaj, who has been selected for the Standard Bank
Proteas squad for the ODI series against Australia, has been one of the
stand-out players during the competition and is currently tied at the top
of the wicket-takers chart with thirteen wickets.
He has led the side well in the tournament and he believes that they are
not looking too far ahead of themselves.
"We aren't feeling too much pressure because we just keep reminding
ourselves to take it game by game," Maharaj said.
"It's more of a confidence booster being top of the log going forward in
"With the Titans coming up next they have a strong batting line-up with a
lot of experience which is probably the aspect of their game that is the
Maharaj has bowled consistently well throughout the tournament and has
played a number of crucial knocks down the order. The captain is satisfied
with how the competition has panned out so far.
"I am happy to be contributing towards the teams results at the moment and
I am happy that I am reaping some rewards from the hard work that I have
"Helping the team out is the main thing for me and I want everyone to be
putting in match-winning performances every game and if we can do that
then we will be in a good position.
"We have a squad of match-winners which means that at any given time guys
can put their hands up and get us over the line."
The match at Hollywoodbets Kingsmead Stadium starts at 13:30.
