Titans step up when it really matters

Posted on August 13, 2015 by Ken

The Unlimited Titans give their fans a hard time with their inconsistent performances, but when it really matters, they perform and Rob Walter, the coach of the newly-crowned Momentum One-Day Cup winners, says he wouldn’t want it any other way.

The Titans claimed the Momentum One-Day Cup title with an incredible win over the Nashua Cape Cobras in the final at Newlands at the weekend, pegging the home side back to 285 for eight after they were 170 without loss after 30 overs, and then chasing down the target, thanks to magnificent centuries from Dean Elgar and Albie Morkel, with 17 balls to spare despite being 60 for four in the 15th over.

“It would be great to totally dominate finals and win, but as a coach you’d much rather see your team manage to find a way out of significant pressure as we did in both innings. It’s a sign of a good team, it shows we’re moving in the right direction and it shows great things about the team. We never gave up, we showed awesome character,” Walter told The Citizen on Monday.

It was the superb batting of Elgar and Morkel that pulled the Titans through when all looked lost and Walter was full of praise for the pair of experienced left-handers.

    James 1:5 - "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him."

    The lessons Christ taught were intensely spiritual, but also extremely practical. For him, everything - every thought and deed - was an expression of his relationship with his heavenly Father. All of our life must be an expression of the spiritual.
