Lions book their place in One Day Cup final
They beat the Warriors in a rain-affected match at the Wanderers.
JOHANNESBURG - Geoffrey Toyana has told EWN Sport there is still a lot that needs to be worked on ahead of Sunday's One-Day Cup final against the Titans.
The Lions booked their spot in the championship match after a frustrating rain-affected game at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium last night.
After restricting the Warriors to 202/8, two major rain delays saw the Lions need to chase 174 in 32 overs, which they did comfortably thanks to knocks of 83 and 70 from Rassie van der Duissen and eventual man of the match Dom Hendricks.
Toyana said, "We bowled well. I mean the first 20 overs, we just let it go and in terms of our fielding we were poor on the field today. I am quite happy with Rassie van der Duissen as he has been struggling a lot in this competition and Dom Hendriks, on how he fielded and how he batted. It was good. I am very happy today."
He adds he's not intimidated by Newlands at all.
"It's a ground that we play well on. It's a day game and at night in Cape Town there are times when conditions change."
The Lions will take on the Cape Cobras in Cape Town on Saturday.
