Cape Cobras coach Ashwell Prince says his team have to look for any opportunity to create winning situations.
In a Sunfoil series that has seen nine draws in three rounds, only bonus points separate the log leaders from the basement team.
As the series head into round four, the Titans lead with 43.12 points, while the Cobras are bringing up the rear with 33.38.
The Cobras coach, in his first full season after taking over a fractured side from Paul Adams midway through the last campaign, said he wants to continue playing positive cricket, and looking for openings to try and open up opponents.
‘The intention is always to play positive cricket,’ Prince said. ‘If there’s a chance for a result we’ll always try and push for it. If there’s a chance to declare earlier to try to create a situation where you put the ball in the opposition’s court, we always look at those things with an eye to get the result.
‘The surfaces we’ve had have been quite tough for the bowlers. But we’ll continue trying to play in a manner that the result is what we’re trying to get.’
So far, the Cobras have garnered just four bowling points from their three matches.
The Titans, on the other hand, have 11, but even then their coach, Mark Boucher, is not satisfied.
‘We’ve been playing good cricket, but not great cricket. The batting has come good, but the bowling has been below par, we haven’t bowled as well as we could have. If we had bowled better, I think we would have had more than just winning draws,’ he said.
