Paarl Rocks all-rounder Ferisco Adams is determined to capitalise on the momentum gained from Wednesday’s Mzansi Super League victory over the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants, come Friday’s clash with the Tshwane Spartans at SuperSport Park in Centurion.
The Rocks’ win over the Giants yielded promotion to the top of the 2019 tournament’s six-team standings. Adams was named Player of the Match, after striking a brisk cameo down the batting order and taking two key wickets.
‘We were very pleased after the last win. To go to Port Elizabeth and beat the Giants, who were previously unbeaten, we’re very happy with that,’ said Adams.
‘They are the form team in the MSL and they are the team to beat, so it was very nice to beat them at home and it’s a very good confidence builder for us going forward in the competition.
‘Hopefully we can go to Pretoria now and get another win there. We’re improving all the time and the confidence is good at the moment.’
The Rocks, meanwhile, are waiting on the fitness of all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius. He is nursing a hand injury sustained earlier this week. The Paarl franchise lost batsmen Aiden Markram and JP Duminy to injury before the tournament started.
