    You're right. Probably bowls 120-130. I haven't seen a lot of him though.

    Seems to be some conjecture about his pace. News24 and CSA call him ‘speedster’, Pienaar but just reading the Cricinfo commentaries, there isn’t much indication that he is particularly quick. Although, whatever his bowling seems to be doing the trick, his taken a hatful against England so far.

    Cape Cobras 20/20 Squad:
    Andrew Puttick, Stiaan van Zyl, Sybrand Engelbrecht, Henry Davids, Richard Levi, Derek Brand, Justin Ontong (capt), Brendan Adams, Vernon Philander, Roger Telemachus, Rory Kleinveldt, Charl Langeveldt, Claude Henderson.

    Andrew Puttick is expected to keep wicket. Roger Telemachus eventually passed a fitness test whilst Derek Brand, who hasn't played any First Class or List A cricket in over 9 years comes in. No surprises but Monde Zondeki is injured.

    Ouch

    Just watching the Eagles/Dolphins game, Bosman has just done a Simon Jones in the outfield, ambulanced off.. Probably out for the rest of the season

    Wow looks like an insane innings from Henry Davids for the Cobras against the Warriors. 48 balls, 112 runs and 9 sixes. It is the only second century in Pro20 history, the highest score in the competition and came at the same pace as Loots Bosman one from years back. Speaking of Loots, looks like his done a Simon Jones and done his knee out in the field in the Eagles Dolphins game. It didn’t look pretty live, he couldn’t move and an ambulance had to be called for and he was carted off.

    Good knock by the Dolphins however; the Eagles were have a tough chase with 10 players.

    Back to the Cobras game, Derek Brand who I said hasn’t played any ‘proper’ cricket for over 9 years made a good comeback, the 33 year old hit 68 of 50 balls and hit one ball out of Newlands. The Warriors inexperienced and lack of quality with the ball was cruelly exposed as the Cobras racked up over 200. They can’t seriously challenge if Zander de Bruyn is going to open the bowling and provincial spinners is what you offer midway through the innings.

    Commentator, Jeremy Fredericks is a good laugh. Speaks Afrikaans when his doing English commentary and English when his meant to be speaking Afrikaans and tells some bizarre cricketing and non-cricketing stories.

    Morne van Wyk has gone grey pretty quick.

    Friend is pretty lively for the Dolphins.

    Not a good shot from boytjie, Rossouw. He is a better cricketer than that.

    Dolphins 184/2 (Rowley 88*, HD Ack 82, McLaren 1/29) beat the Eagles 116/9 (Bailey 31, Smit 3/24, Alfonso 2/20) by 69 runs (10 balls remaining)

    Good win by the Dolphins and another impressive performance from wicket-keeper, Smit with his leg-spin.

    Cobras 207/2 (Davids 112*, Brand 68, Theron 1/29) beat the Warriors 203/5 (Ingram 84, Robbie P 51, Langeveldt 2/30) by 4 runs

    Apparently there was 12,000 at Newlands, good crowd and from the looks of it an exciting game.

    Pro 20

    Dolphins 121/9 (Smit 31, Mbhalati 2/6, Tahir 2/20) Titans - No Result

    Eagles 156/3 (van Wyk 89*, Bailey 39*, Frylinck 1/23) beat the Lions 148/7 (Vilas 44, du Preez 3/25, Bailey 2/26) by 8 runs

    Shame about the rain at Centurion for Daryn Smit's late order hitting (Dolphins hit 50 plus of the last five) gave them a total on a two-paced track which could have been defended. Good to see Imran Tahir back for the Titans, got taken in his last over but did well and alongside van der Merwe and Faf they can do a real good job for the Titans in Pro 20. Faf got two wickets and bowled a beaut to get Johann Louw, pitched on leg, turned and hit off. He took a fine catch as well whilst lanky seamer, Mbhalati recorded economically the best figures in Pro 20 history with his four overs upfront.

    As for the Eagles Lions game, the Lions welcomed back for the game speedster, Friedel de Wet, who has been out injured all season and new recruit, former Dolphins all-rounder, Robert Frylinck (who last played cricket for Surrey in the summer on a Kolpak), came straight into the side. The Lions were always in with a sniff of victory but two good last overs from Dillon du Preez and Ryan McLaren snuffed them out.

    Good to see Frylinck going elsewhere. Lets hope he can fulfill his potential.

    With two new franchises coming in, I really hope some spinners for the Titans jump ship. Obviously they're known for producing talented players and they have plenty of depth but I think it ruins the potential of up and comers. I'd like to see Roelof play in the Supersport series, or Faf becoming a front line spinning alrounder in all forms of the game or even Harro playing in the Pro 20.

    Where finding a spinner is an issue in SA, these guys need lots of overs and they need to play every game at the highest level they can.

    And the best of the lot (IM possibly dated Opinion) cant get a game or a mention in amongst the Titans spinners.

    If you're talking about Aronstam, it reinforces my point. Such a pity.

    I am and it does. As you say, it is a shame.

    In FC cricket Id take Harris over him and then him over Faf or Roelof.

    Well looking at the possible Border side and I don't see a frontline spinner in their ranks, even in the SAA provincial. Both Peterson and Botha are from Eastern Province so we can hope.

    I remember Kepler Wessels doing that, went into a savage point about the state of spin bowling in South Africa that he'd clearly spent half an hour thinking about, only to be shot down for speaking in the wrong language for five minutes.
