'I've got more opportunities to come' says opener

DAN Wilson admits he has been frustrated with his inability to convert starts into big scores through the opening three matches of the Queensland Premier Cricket season.

But the Hornets opener is not too concerned.

"You always like to score runs, but as you get older you think a bit less about what you're doing individually and it becomes more about the result as a whole,” he said ahead of tomorrow's two-day opener against reigning premiers Norths at Baxter Oval.

"I'm absolutely filthy that I've gotten two 30s - if you consider yourself a good player, you should turn those into big scores - but I've got more opportunities to come.”

The Hornets draw the premiers at the right time; Norths will be without Joe Burns and Jack Prestwidge, both in Townsville with the Bulls. But the two sides always play out close contests, and Wilson is expecting another.

"They won the comp last year, and the guys that take those spots more often than not do a good job,” the opener said.

"We've played them a fair bit the last couple of years. We had a good result in two-day cricket last year, but got beaten pretty handily in the one-day cricket.

"It's one of those games where if we put our head down and play good cricket we'll be confident of getting a good result. But they'll be thinking the same thing.”
