CAPE TOWN – Cape Cobras coach Ashwell Prince insists it his team will take it one game at a time in their pursuit of the 4-Day Domestic Series title ahead of their clash with the Warriors at Newlands in Cape Town starting on Monday.
The hosts have put themselves in pole position for the first-class title after five wins from their seven games this season.
And, with just three matches remaining in 2018/19, they lead the pack by nearly 20 points with their 140,04 points compared with the 120,62 of the second-placed Highveld Lions.
The margin is even greater from the rest of the pack with their round eight opponents the Warriors next on the list over 45 points behind on 94,60, but Prince is not prepared to put the cart before the horse.
“A win is 16 points, a loss is 10 points, so the nineteen and a half (19.5) point lead we have can be turned around pretty quickly if things don’t go the right way,” he said. “It’s one game at a time.
“We have to approach every game the same way, starting from nought for nought and build our way into the game, whether it’s batting or bowling, and in time wrestle our way into a position of advantage in a game.
“That’s going to be the same for all three games.”
