Lions have what it takes: Cook

Johannesburg - Highveld Lions captain Stephen Cook believes their form in the Sunfoil Series reflects a passion to win the tournament.

"We tried to instil the desire to win into the players before the season, and they have responded," said Cook on Tuesday, ahead of their clash against the Titans on Thursday.

"We have been trying to play winning cricket, and have had just one draw this season."

The Lions ended the Cape Cobras' unbeaten run last weekend where they beat the log leaders by eight wickets at Newlands, which placed them in third position, 15 points behind the Cobras.

"It was always going to be tough against the Cobras, and we are happy where we are on the log."

The Titans on the other hand have experienced their worst season in the competition and are firmly rooted to the bottom of the log. They are the only team without a win this season, and have lost five out of six matches.

But coach Matthew Maynard said he still had some hope of ending the campaign on a positive note.

"We have set out to play our best in every match, but it has not always worked for us. We have not been a million miles from success, and we will play positively for our last four matches," he said.
