• Morgan sets sights on next MSL

    Head coach Grant Morgan is eager to see the Durban Heat end an otherwise disappointing Mzansi Super League campaign in triumph this week.

    The Heat have been ruled out of contention for a berth in the play-off stage of the competition, after just two wins in nine matches.

    Their last fixture will be against the Tshwane Spartans at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Wednesday. They beat the Spartans earlier in the tournament.

    ‘We just want to keep growing the Durban Heat history page and it would be great to put down that we beat the Spartans twice in our first campaign,’ said Morgan.

    “Let’s try and grow this legacy. It hasn’t been a great start, but we know that in the future it can turn at any stage.

    ‘The boys haven’t given up, and the team is very motivated and excited to finish the competition on a high.’

    The Heat also boast a victory over the table-topping Cape Town Blitz, who were undone by half-centurions Morne van Wyk and Khaya Zondo at Newlands on Sunday.

    ‘Sunday was the first time that we actually nailed our batting template – a template that I endorsed,’ added Morgan.

    ‘The plan was to get one guy through to the 13th over, bat with courage, and then get into the back-end fully loaded.

    ‘The guys just had to give themselves a chance and then our lineup will perform as well as it looks on paper.’
