Bloemfontein - The Knights came away empty-handed from their RAM SLAM T20 opener on Sunday, but coach Sarel Cilliers had no issues with the quality of their performance.

Cilliers saw his men go down by nine runs in a tight game against the Cape Cobras, but was encouraged by what he saw and has confidence in their ability to take the points off the Warriors at Buffalo Park on Wednesday evening.

“We’ve got the same 13 men and I can’t see too many changes,” said Cilliers.

“I think the only disappointing thing about the game against the Cobras was probably the result.

“There were some very positive things from that game - one or two mistakes that we can rectify but all in all I was satisfied with the start we made.”

The Warriors kicked off their campaign in style, beating the reigning champion Highveld Lions by 26 runs, and are likely to field the same team on Wednesday as Colin Ingram continues his recovery from injury.

Twenty-year-old opening batsman Edward Moore impressed in Ingram’s absence, hitting a stylish 27 as the rest of the top order folded.

“Colin is still out so we’ll probably play the same XI - we’ve got a nice squad going,” said Warriors captain Davy Jacobs.

“I like the look of Eddy Moore, he looks like a good prospect for us.”
