Kimberly test next up for Dolphins – Featured Durban Blog

Kimberly test next up for Dolphins:

The Hollywoodbets continue their manic Momentum One Day Cup run-in with an encounter with the VKB Knights at the Diamond Oval in Kimberley on Sunday.

The Dolphins and the Knights had contrasting fortunes in their fixtures on Friday with the Knights beating the Warriors while the Dolphins went down to the Multiply Titans.

For Dolphins coach Grant Morgan the most important thing for his side is that they keep on pushing hard in their remaining games.

“In my three seasons in this competition we have led the standings early and we are not going to sit back and just accept that we are in a play-off,” Morgan mentioned.

“We have tried to work hard at our inner ring fielding and have made changes to the side which are in line with improving our team.

“We are not going to fall into that trap of assuming anything and we are trying to put all the talk into practice for the people.”

Going into their final three round robin games of the competition, Morgan is putting pressure on his chargers to look at each game as a must-win.

“We are approaching our last games as play-off games,” he stressed. “If we are going to be in a knock out position later in the competition we want to try and replicate that in our next three games.”

All of the Dolphins’ remaining games are on the road and Morgan is hoping that his side can continue their good form away from KwaZulu-Natal.

“These two losses at home hurt but we have a good record on the road in all formats.

“Being dangerous away from home can set us up nicely and hopefully give us some good momentum towards the play-offs,” Morgan added.

Sibz Makhanya returned to the Dolphins side for the first time this campaign and top scored with 55 for the hosts in their loss to the Titans on Friday.

“It’s nice to be back in the side and contributing,” he said. “It is a strong squad so it is quite hard to get a game and it is a bit sour that we lost but I am glad that I was able to contribute to the side.”

Getting a good knock in at the beginning of a busy away schedule will give Makhanya some good confidence going into three matches in six days.

“If someone had offered me this innings at the start I definitely would have taken it and if I get game time going forward hopefully I can get the ball rolling and put in some performances that get us over the line.

“We had a chat and we agreed that we wouldn’t take the soft option and look for that one win, we want to adopt the championship mentality and try and win every game,’ Makhanya added.

The Dolphins will take the same 15 players to Kimberley that played in Durban.

They will be hoping that captain Khaya Zondo will have recovered from a back strain that kept him out of their loss to the Titans on Friday.

Sarel Erwee, Vaughn van Jaarsveld, Marques Ackerman, Dane Vilas, Khaya Zondo (c), Sibz Makhanya, Senuran Muthusamy, Keshav Maharaj, Calvin Savage, Eathan Bosch, Okuhle Cele, Prenelan Subrayen, Mthokozisi Shezi, Kerwin Mungroo, Lwandiswa Zuma.
