Titanic task in Pro20 final
The Titans aim to secure their second trophy in two months when they meet the Dolphins in a potentially explosive Standard Bank Pro20 final in Durban today at 6pm.
The Pretoria side lifted the prestigious MTN Domestic Championships title by humiliating the Warriors by 38 runs last month. Their coach, Richard Pybus, said yesterday they intend winning the Pro20 final at all costs.
The first prize for winners of this competition is R500 000.
But Pybus quickly pointed out that it was not going to be an easy task against the Durbanites, who beat them in the round robin stages.
"The Dolphins are a good team and they have been consistent throughout the season,'' said Pybus.
On Wednesday the Pretoria side were hard at training at Centurion. They later watched video tapes of their opponents to analyse their strengths and identify any weaknesses.
Dophins coach Yashin Ebrahim is hopeful that his charges will do well and collect the last trophy available before the end of the season.
"Trophies have been eluding us in the past years. Now is the time to bag one at the expense of the Gautengers,'' said a confident Ebrahim.
The Dolphins have been boosted by the timely return of batsman Hashim Amla from national duty.
