- Protea batter Aiden Markram said he needed to adapt to the quick scoring demands of the T20’s fourth batter.
- Mark Lam will face Ireland in his first T20 on Tuesday and will do the same in his second match at Belfast on Thursday.
- One of Mark Lamb’s most famous innings in domestic cricket was Titans fourth in the 2018/19 One Day Cup final with Dolphins.
Protea butter Aiden Markram Being fourth in the batting order of the T20 team means that his blockbuster needs to go quickly and smoothly.
It’s not new for Mark Lamb to fight in 4th place in White Ball Cricket, but most of his success came as the opening round of the T20 Cricket.
Six of Mark Lamb’s 10 innings on the T20 cricket were in the opening round and he was productive in that position, but his highest score of 70 was third against the West Indies.
Markram has to handle the fourth berth, as there are plenty of top-order options that are hard to ignore, like Jannemann Malang.
The second T20 against Ireland on Thursday in Belfast will be Mark Lamb’s second puncture wound and hopes the adjustments he has made will help.
“We don’t face many balls, so we have to spend a lot of effort on hitting power and pulling triggers fast,” he said.
“When you were batting at the top, if you were batting at the back end of the inning, you would have been batting yourself.
“It’s an adjustment I need to make, and that’s what I’ve spent a lot of time on. Much depends on the circumstances and circumstances in which we are.”
One of Mark Lamb’s renowned Limited Over Innings finished fourth in the Titans in the 2018/19 One Day Cup final, but Mark Lamb admitted that he was still learning the technique of teeing off from the first ball.
Mark Lamb’s 88-ball 127 against Dolphins on March 31, 2019 saw him plunder five fours and eight sixs.
It was Inning that almost sealed his place on the fateful 2019 World Cup trip, but Markram knows that his training needs to simulate his match conditions.
“For me, it’s about being able to step into a net session and pull the trigger from ball 1,” Markram said.
“It’s not about getting into the net and feeling your way, it’s about getting in with a fair amount of strength and ensuring that the boundaries are scored on each over, if not two overs.”
