The champions currently have a ten-point advantage over today’s opponents and Caesareans skipper Meeku Patidar feels that who ever wins the game will take the title.Patidar said: ‘I don’t think it will come down to the bonus points, I think who ever wins the game will take the title.
Sporting Club are in the driving seat, they have that ten-point lead and they have three titles in a row behind them.’They will not want to let go of the title easily.
They are a very good team, I played with a handful of them for the Island recently and many of them are the cream of Jersey’s cricketers.’It will be a hard game and we will be up for the challenge.
I have not finalised our team yet but although we do not have great fire-power we are very steady with our line and length.
We will be looking not to give free runs away as Sporting Club thrive on that when it happens.’We will look to keep it very tight and hopefully that will build a bit of pressure on them.
We are the underdogs and with Dave Gorman returning after missing the last three league games for various reasons I’m hopeful that his presence will be a good motivator for our team.’SCF vice-captain Matt Hague said: ‘We are playing on pitch one at the FB Fields and I’m glad as it’s the best wicket on the Island at the moment.
We’re at full strength so hopefully we will get a good score to defend.’The wickets have not been as good this year as previous season’s, I don’t know why but it’s been hard to get runs and the bowlers have dominated.
We want to win and retain the title as well as qualifying for the Upton.
If we lose it will be very disappointing but we’ll still have the Senior Cup to play for.’
