The KZN Inland Tuskers will take on the Northern Cape Heat in the Division 2 One-Day Cup final at the Pietermaritzburg Oval on Friday.
The match will start at 10am and be streamed live on the SuperSport YouTube channel.
The Tuskers topped the log as the only undefeated side in Division 2, while the Heat won the Division 2 Domestic 4-Day Series in March.
“Our plan will remain the same,” said Tuskers captain Michael Erlank. “We have prepared well throughout the season and we are starting to see the results of all the hard work.
“Winning this tournament will be a huge accomplishment. Not only for the players but also the management staff, the union and all its staff members.
“The win would go a long way in growing the Tuskers brand in Pietermaritzburg and giving our supporters something to cheer about.
“Going into the off-season will provide a much-needed break for us, and for some, an opportunity to play cricket overseas. It will be a time to reflect on the season we had and slowly start planning on how we are going to take on the next season and try to improve on what we have set up this season.”
Heat captain Aubrey Swanepoel said: “We have played good cricket throughout the year, and we are happy with how things have turned out this season. We have match-winning players, but a good team performance in the final will give us a better chance of winning it.
“A win would be great for the team as we had a successful season, and another trophy would be good for us. Double winners do not come around very often, but we are hoping to get the business done.
“We will have a break [after the final] before the physical and conditioning starts. We have loads planned for the off-season as we hope to continue developing the squad to move to the next level. We sowed this season, and next year we want to yield even better results so we can move to the next level.”
