Parnell: “It’s just about resetting” after Lions’ loss

World Sports Betting Western Province experienced Left-arm fast bowler Wayne Parnell believes the team hasn’t lost focus despite last weekend’s loss to DP World Lions. Province suffered a one-run defeat in a Super Over at DP World Wanderers on Sunday.

However, the focus has shifted as the team is set to depart World Sports Betting Newlands to Gqeberha on Thursday to face the log leaders Dafabet Warriors. The match will start at 14:00 on Thursday, 21 March 2024.

Parnell is confident the team has learned from last week’s loss. He says a lot needs to be done to improve as the team is working to remain focused.

“I think it’s just about resetting, I think we know where it went wrong against the Lions. But having said that, I think we know after four games and three wins, we still have to look at it from a positive point of view,” said Parnell.

“I think everyone is in a good space, there’s always going to be room for improvement even if we were four from four or even if we were no wins from four games.

“So, for us, it’s about trying to take positive things out of every single game, whether we play well or don’t play well, and then obviously taking that into the next game and then just trying to rectify certain mistakes that we’ve made.”

Playing at St Georges Park will sound and look familiar for Parnell who is Gqeberha born. He knows a different mind and skill set is needed to achieve the goal in Gqeberha.

“I think obviously different skill sets are required, a lot of us have played at St George’s Park, so we almost know what to expect,” he said.

“So, it’s just about getting there, assessing and obviously adapting to conditions. Backing everyone, I think that’s been the strength of the side in white ball cricket. Going out there, backing every single player and just expressing ourselves.”
