Morris thriving in new environment

They fell short in the first match of their Ram Slam T20 Challenge campaign but since then the Titans haven’t looked back.

They’ve been the complete package with bat and ball so far and are sitting pretty at the top of the log and hunting qualification for a final.

“The guys are playing nicely and it’s a big team effort at the moment,” Chris Morris, who has assimilated comfortably into life at the Pretoria franchise since making the switch earlier this year said.

“The nice thing is that in every game someone has stood up. It hasn’t just been one individual. In each phase of the game someone has stood up and broken the game for us. For me that’s just the sign of a team that’s gelling,” he added.

As it stands Morris has been one of the standout bowlers in the competition having bagged 12 wickets in seven games.

“I think there’s something special here. I know it’s cliche for new players to say that when they arrive but we’ve got the players, we have the coaching staff and the environment we have there’s something special brewing here.”

“We’ve still got a lot of hard work ahead of us but there are a lot of positives coming out of the tournament for us.”

Their hosts are still in with a shout, albeit a slim one, of making the play-offs and Morris is wary of taking them too lightly.

“PE is always a tough place to go play cricket. The environment is good and I personally think the Warriors are a well-drilled side. The results might not say so but they’ve got a lot of match winners, guys who can take the game away from you very quickly. We’re going to have to be at our best to beat them,” he said.
