Boro skipper staying positive

PULBOROUGH cricket captain Rohit Jagota is refusing to get too downbeat after their comprehensive defeat to Preston Nomads on Saturday.

Jagota’s side were bowled out for just 89 and despite taking three early wickets, the defending champions were never in doubt and ran out with a six wicket win.

It means Pulborough have started life in the Premier League with a draw and a loss, but defeat against a side including first class calibre like Carl Simon and Joe Gatting of Sussex – who both took four wickets apiece – is not going to keep Jagota up at night.

“We know our strength,” he said. “The batsmen didn’t perform today but it’s just one match and we’ll just take it.

Alright we didn’t play well but there’s a long season. We’re just looking to our next match now. “Early on in the season I said we’re not just surviving, we’re going to give every team a good game.”
