    Confuses the hell out of me, so I just put what province they mainly represent and draw cricketers from.. As there is no such place as 'Northern Gauteng'.. They used to be called "Northerns" after Northern Province, yet their stadium is well inside Gauteng..

    They used to be called Northerns (and still are) after Northern Transvaal. The Transvaal became Gauteng and therefore it is still Gauteng they are as much of Gauteng as the Lions. Especially as the 2 main parts (Northerns and Easterns were part of the Transvaal, now Gauteng). Though Limpopo was certainly Northern Transvaal. It does get complicated.

    That Titans and Lions are both from Gauteng is a historical relic. I see it as Pretoria and outer lying areas and provinces and Jo'burg and its similar.

    Looks like this will be the last season of six franchises as Griqualand West and Border are reportedly going to become franchises from next season.

    Re: the Titans. Easterns is also one of the teams that contribute to the franchise, and they are the old Eastern Transvaal, which was basically the East Rand and what is now Mpumalanga. Willowmoore Park, their stadium is in Benoni (my hometown), which is also well inside Gauteng, and only about 35km from the Wanderers.

    Don't get too many cricketers coming from the East Rand that I can think of. Off the top of my head: Andre Nel, the Morkel brothers, and Andrew Hall (although he is from Alberton, which although on the East Rand, falls under the Lions franchise I think).

    So, who do you guys think will get a look-in to the SA squad this season. I think Tsotsobe from the Warriors may get a debut (how fast does he bowl anyway?), and Andrew Puttick may also be next in the queue after JP Duminy to replace somebody in the Test side.

    Tsotobe, Puttick for sure.. Boucher should feel like his position is under threat to be honest.. Not sure how Heino Kuhn has been progressing of late though

    135 tops but he usually operates at around the 125-30 mark.

    In regard to pace, Rob Houwing bemoans the lack of genuine fast bowlers in this yearís SuperSport series...

    Keeping from all reports is come on nicely, still isnít thought of as a Ďproperí keeper but his batting is more than serviceable. Iíll doubt we will see him this year though for if Boucher does give way, AB will be his replacement. Kuhn isnít thought of as a 'dynamic' enough one day cricketer so AB would take the gloves and that allows South Africa to bring in another batsman. Boucher was exposed during the England one day series for he was batting at least one place too high.

    Plays for Gauteng but still gets gig for the Lions now and then. Usually when their season is over.

    So it's started.

    Looks like it's a poor day with the bat so far. Most of people who I want to progress aren't doing too well.

    That's been a problem for a while. Before Morne Morkel and Dale Steyn, there weren't many who bowled over 130.

    Isn't Matthew Arnold quick?

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.
