T20 CHAMPIONSHIP PREVIEW - 31st MARCH
SOUTH EAST V CORNWALL - PAPATOETOE RECREATION GROUND
In a repeat of last weekend's Pearl Dawson Trophy final South East will look to add another piece of silverware to their trophy cabinet, while Cornwall will be going all out for revenge.
South East had a comfortable victory last Saturday in the limited overs final thanks in no small measure to an impressive spell of bowling from Holly Huddleston (5-7).
But while Huddlestone's performance stood out South East coach Craig Sunde praised his sides all- round performance and is hoping for more of the same this coming weekend:
"It was a complete performance with bat, ball and especially in the field. Ever since Christmas we have turned a corner and are doing lots of things well. We just need to continue to do those things for one last game on Saturday."
Cornwall defeated South East on the first two occasions the sides met this season, but since then Sunde's team have dominated picking up victories in the following three head to heads: "We have played very well against Cornwall lately and will take a lot of confidence into Saturday's final. We set ourselves some high goals at the start of the season and if we can get our hands on a second trophy by Saturday evening then those targets will have come to fruition."
These two sides had identical records in the group stages, but with South East having a superior net run rate they have `home field advantage` with the game once again being played at the Papatoetoe Recreation Ground.
The third/fourth placed play-off is another return match with North East looking to turn the tables on Central West who defeated them in the limited overs third/fourth place play-off last weekend. Central will have home field advantage in this one with the game being held at Te Atatu Park
