MAN of the match in Orange City’s champion Royal Hotel Cup outfit last summer, left-arm quick Ed Morrish concedes the Warriors haven’t been at their best to start the summer.
They’re planning on changing that tonight.
“I hope so. I really hope so,” Morrish said, taking 3-22 off four overs during last summer’s final, including wickets with the second and third balls of the innings.
“We did everything right last season and we’ve just got to get back to that form again. We’re slowly getting back into it.”
Orange City defeated Kinross by seven wickets in their opening Twenty20 game of the summer in October and Morrish said the Warriors had “all-round improvement” in it ahead of tonight’s clash with Wanderers-Gladstone.
Banking on that anything-can-happen feel of cricket’s shortest form, Wanderers-Gladstone skipper Daryl Kennewell believes holding catches and bowling tight lines will be key to claiming victory.
“That’s the things we’re trying to work on from last game,” he said.
“They’re going to be a tough side and we don’t have the players I thought we might so we’ve just got to be tight in the field, we’ve got the batters that can do the job.”
City clashes with Wanderers-Gladstone from 7.30pm at Wade Park.
