The table-topping Northerns Titans will host the Central Gauteng Lions in the One-Day Cup final in Centurion on Wednesday.
The Titans defeated the Lions in March to clinch the Domestic 4-Day Series title, while the Lions are the only team to have beaten the Titans in the One-Day Cup.
Titans captain Sibonelo Makhanya says his team plans to keep things simple in the final.
“There will be a lot of emotion going into this game and our plan is to keep the momentum and continue to play the dominant game we’ve been playing.
“A win tomorrow will mean the team is heading in the right direction. We have already achieved a lot as a team this season and this win will be the cherry on top.
“We just have to do it one more time as a team this season and that will give the boys a well-deserved happy break.”
Lions captain Dominic Hendricks believes his side will need to dominate the Titans in all three departments in order to win.
“The plan going into the final is to go out and play our best game of cricket and win the game. We will be doing our best to outskill the Titans with bat, ball and in the field.
“We know we did not play our best game of cricket against them in the 4-Day Series, and we were punished for it. We are looking to change that, and you can expect us to win this time around.
“A win tomorrow will be massive for the team. It will give the team the confidence going into next season that we can win trophies. It has been a massive learning curve for everyone this season, so hopefully we can finish off this season on a high with a trophy in the cabinet.”
The match will start at 1pm and be broadcast on SuperSport.
