KZN Inland aim to build turn-around in Gauteng

2013-11-28 00:00

THE KwaZulu-Natal Inland team head to Johannesburg to take on Gauteng in this weekend’s fixture of the CSA three-day and one-day championships.

Grant Morgan’s boys will want to bounce back after last weekend’s results in which they went down to Griquas in the one-day game, and just managed to hold on for a draw in the longer version.

They face a Gauteng team who are winless in five one-day games, and sitting second from bottom, and sitting pretty in second spot in the three-day competition, which is led by the KZN Coastal side in first place.

Last week, coach Morgan told The Witness that the principal objective for this season was to turn around the fortunes on the field of the perennial strugglers.

At this point in the championships, they’re one of only two teams — the other one being North West — that remain undefeated in the longer version with one win and three draws in their first four games so far.

What is certain is that the boys from the Midlands will be up against it when they play their three-day game that begins today at the Walter Milton Oval at the University of the Witwaterstrand in Johannesburg.

They should however be in with a shout of coming back to Pietermaritzburg with a win in the shorter version against a Gauteng side who have had contrasting fortunes in the different formats.

But, with heavy showers and thunderstorms being forecast for Johannesburg over the weekend, the weather could very much have a say in which way the games go, as it has so often this season.

Today’s game is scheduled to start at 10 am, while on Sunday they are expected to start playing at 9.30am. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
