CONFIDENCE: it's the most precious commodity in sport.
Blacktown got some of it back when they beat Bankstown in their limited-overs match in Bankstown on Sunday, after the first day of their local derby against Parramatta was washed out on Sunday.
The win maintains the Warriors in 10th spot on the Sydney first-grade cricket table and they remain a rough show for the finals, six points out of the top six with three rounds remaining.
Blacktown had been all-but for several rounds and another win could work the wonder.
Bankstown won the toss and batted on the wet track and were dismissed for 145.
Warriors spinner Matt Bursa was the key man, taking 3-35, assisted by Corey Collymore, Daya Singh and Tony Clark, with two apiece.
A tense finish saw Blacktown be 8-145 in 41 overs as they took the points.
Rohit Ramanathan got the innings underway with 30 off 54 balls, including five fours, and Singh smashed away late to be 28 not out.
Blacktown will now meet Parramatta under altered conditions at Joe McAleer this Saturday, weather permitting.
