Captain Gavin Randall insists it is "a weird feeling" that England Learning Disabilities head into the Tri-Nations final as favourites

England Learning Disabilities captain Gavin Randall hopes to conclude the best week of his life with a victory in the final of the Inas Tri-Nations tomorrow.

England have enjoyed a perfect trip so far, beating both South Africa and tournament holders Australia twice to register four wins from four.

However, an excellent tour will become an exceptional one should they lift the trophy at the De Beers Diamond Oval in Kimberley.

"This has been the best week of my life," Randall told ecb.co.uk.

"We are all really excited about the final. Everyone is up for it.

"For the first time we go into the final as favourites. That's quite a weird feeling.

"There won't be any complacency from us though. We aren't thinking about what it will feel like if we win the final."

England had to wait to find out who their final opponents would be. Hosts South Africa, unless they are trounced by Australia in the last group game, are most likely to be lining up in Kimberley tomorrow.

"We don't mind who we play," said Randall.

"Our performances this week just show what 18 months of hard work can do.

"There is a great team spirit in the camp. Everyone is pulling together and fighting for each other."
