Last-placed Bective East need to perform better in key moments of matches to become a side who win consistently, says their captain, Jye Paterson.
Paterson said that point was painfully underlined in the Bulls’ last-start loss to Old Boys with one ball remaining.
In a Twenty20 clash against third-placed South Tamworth at Riverside 1 on Saturday, he challenged his teammates to turn the corner in that regard.
“A few key moments we didn’t do very well [against Old Boys],” he said. “Like, we didn’t bat out our overs very well at the end. A few bad decisions in the field [too].
“Those little one-percenters. Those little things we probably should be doing, we’re probably not doing as great as some of the other sides [and that is] probably our downfall, I’d say.
“But we’re getting there. We’ve improved a lot since the start of the season. So hopefully we get another win on the board tomorrow [Saturday] and go from there – get a bit of confidence.”
The Bulls will be without James and Tom Haling against Souths, while opener AJ Pretorius has moved to the Gold Coast.
