• Davids: We have to execute better with the ball

    Captain Henry Davids is confident the Paarl Rocks can bounce back from Sunday’s Mzansi Super League defeat to the Tshwane Spartans.

    The Rocks were defeated by one run at Boland Park, where they will play the Jozi Stars on Tuesday.

    ‘There are a lot of positive things we can take from the game. It is a pity about the result. But I am fairly happy and at ease at where we are. The way we played there were a lot of positives,’ said Davids.

    Davids all but insisted on a stronger performance with the ball, after the Rocks conceded the the highest score of the tournament so far – 203 for five.

    ‘We know we have to execute better with the ball. I thought the batting was fairly good. It is not the end of the world, and, if we can carry on with the momentum we gained, we can only go from strength to strength,’ he added.

    Davids is captaining the team in the absence of national skipper Faf du Plessis, who recently returned from South Africa’s limited-overs tour of Australia. If not Tuesday’s fixture, du Plessis will likely be available for Sunday’s outing with the Cape Town Blitz.
