Find sixth sense

The two teams have faced each other once this season and it was Liam Gledhill who proved the difference.

Win and you are in.

Karramomus hosts Numurkah tomorrow to determine the sixth position on the Haisman Shield ladder.

The Bloods are clinging onto a finals appearance, but a loss to the eighth-placed Blues could lift the visitors into finals contention.

The two teams have faced each other once this season and it was Liam Gledhill who proved the difference.

Going at more than a run a ball, the all-rounder smashed 163 not out, single-handedly beating the Bloods’ score of 108.

‘‘As much as it will not make a difference, it is good knowing that you are in control of your own destiny rather than having to rely on other results,’’ Karramomus captain Jason Ibbotson said.

Similarly, Gledhill was aware of what was at stake.

‘‘We just need to focus on our game, play to win and if we are lucky enough, the result will sort itself out,’’ Gledhill said.

With Gledhill running riot last time the teams played each other, Ibbotson will be looking to nullify the influence of his opposing captain.

‘‘When he gets going, he is one of the best batsmen going around. He’s their captain and plays a massive part in their success,’’ Ibbotson said.

On the other hand, Gledhill admitted his side’s recent form against Karramomus had been quite good.

‘‘We have played well against Karramomus, so the boys will take confidence from that,’’ Gledhill said.

‘‘In the end, this is a finals-like game, so we just have to show up and perform to our best.’’
