TITANS SEEKING SECOND TROPHY
JOHANNESBURG — Freshly- crowned 50over champions the Titans have their eye on the double as they head to Buffalo Park to take on the equally in- form Warriors in the domestic Four- Day Series resuming today.
The Titans had not picked up two trophies in a season since the 2011/ 12 campaign, but at 15,84 points behind the Lions at the summit of the table the opportunity to exceed expectations was a reality.
“There’s a very good buzz around the team, but one thing we have addressed is that it’s just one trophy — it’s not enough,” said Titans captain Henry Davids.
“So the hunger is there in this team to win another one. We’re lying in second place, and if we can pick up three more wins over the next five games then we should be there or thereabouts.”
After requiring injections to play in the One- Day final, Albie Morkel will sit out the fixture against the Warriors, but Ethy Mbhalati and Rowan Richards come back into the squad with some game time under their belts after turning out for Northerns in a three- day game against Namibia last weekend.
The Warriors will be without Ayabulela Gqamane because of injury and Rusty Theron due to illness, while Davy Jacobs is still making his way back from ankle surgery.
Having won six of their last seven games in all competitions — including their last three in the One- Day competition — the Warriors enter the final stretch of the season on a high.
