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.
In regard to pace, Rob Houwing bemoans the lack of genuine fast bowlers in this yearís SuperSport series...
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.In regard to pace, Rob Houwing bemoans the lack of genuine fast bowlers in this year’s SuperSport series...
Isn't Matthew Arnold quick?
