    Bizhub highveld lions announce leadership ahead of the season

    the bizhub highveld lions this morning announced the team’s leadership on the field for the coming season as their training camp at senwes park nears its end.

    Previous skipper, alviro petersen will still be at the head of the team in all formats of the game. He will be assisted by stephen cook in the sunfoil series and the momentum one day cup. Jean symes steps in as vice-captain for the ram slam t20.

    Chairman, archie pretorius, sees this as perfecting what worked well for the team in the previous season. “these three players added immense value to the team environment in the previous season. Both stephen and jean play an important supportive role and are able to step up when alviro is on national duty. This is crucial from a continuity perspective and ensuring that the team’s momentum is not disturbed,” pretorius said.

    For petersen, this will further strengthen the foundation that the team has built. “we needed to ensure that the team is equipped with all it needs to function as a successful unit and securing the leadership is integral to that. The last thing we want is to be regarded as one hit wonders. Although we relish and enjoy the successes of last season, the real hard work comes now that the world is paying attention to a side that used to be the underdogs in any battle that we stepped into,” said petersen.

    “i have full confidence in stephen and jean and know that they will provide me as a captain with the necessary support to lead this team in the season to come.”

    the team returns from potchefstroom on friday and will be departing for india on tuesday, 17 september 2013. A send-off will take place in the long room at bidvest wanderers stadium on monday, 16th september at 16:00

    Some news -

    1) Zaheer Khan is currently in Bloemfontein training with the Knights

    2) Talented left-arm swing bowler, Jan Frylinck, has left Boland and joined Griquas in provincial set-up. Eventually will be a big loss for the Cobras and a good coup for the Knights at franchise level.

    3) WP amateur announced their squad for the season. A good collection of batsmen outside the Cobras squad (Matthew Kleinveldt, Pieter Malan, SA Engelbrecht, David Bedingham, Grant Edmeades etc) & seamers (Francois Plaatjies, Johan Bothma, Dane Paterson, Chad Fortune, Travis Muller & Brendan Young)

    Warriors team news ahead of Chevrolet Friendship Cup

    Botha has a full squad bar Ashwell Prince to pick from for next week's fixtures. Prince will only be back from English county cricket and Lancashire next Sunday.

    "Wayne Parnell also won't play next week. He'll be resting but fortunately we've got good news that he will be fine [after an irregular breathing scare]," Botha said.

    Captain Davy Jacobs also had a slight ankle injury while playing in the West Indies "but he will play one of the games". Botha said he would be mixing and matching the squad to give everybody a chance.

    New signing Ryan Bailey, an allrounder, will also get a chance to play against his former Knights teammates.

    Botha is confident Bailey will have a role to play in the Warriors' middle order.

    Botha also said Border batsman Vuyisa Makhaphela would be one to look out for this season

    "We are also hoping for Jon-Jon [Smuts] to have a good season. He struggled a bit last year but he is a good enough player to come back," Botha said.

    Although the squad will be playing internal matches today and tomorrow, there is no substitute for competitive action and the fixtures against the Knights next week will provide solid preparation for the season to come.

    DOLPHINS SEASON LAUNCH TODAY

    Klusener -

    Dolphins coach Lance Klusener is confident the squad assembled for the new cricket season is capable of winning silverware.

    The Durban franchise have performed poorly in recent years, last winning a trophy in 2005/06.

    "There's some really good quality in the squad," Klusener said during the season launch on Wednesday.

    Among their major recruits for the season were former Proteas wicketkeeper Morne van Wyk, who will captain the team after joining from the Knights, as well as England fast bowler Graham Onions, who has been roped in for the three major competitions.

    "Morne van Wyk brings some good captaincy skills, as well as his batting experience," said Klusener.

    "Graham Onions is a top quality bowler. And if you marry all the work we've done in pre-season to what we've assembled here, you've got a pretty formidable team. It's just about making sure everyone pitches up and does their job, which is something we haven't been doing in the past."

    Last season, Klusener's first full-term as coach, saw steady improvement from previous seasons with the Dolphins ending third in the Sunfoil Series. They finished fifth out of six teams in the two other competitions, the One Day Cup and Twenty20 Challenge.

    The format of the new season means they begin with the 50-over tournament this year and play their first game against the Highveld Lions in Potchefstroom on October 13.

    "We want to win all three competitions, that's why we're here," Klusener said.

    "But that's way up in front. For now we just want to focus on what we need to do day by day. If we can get that right, the rest will take care of itself. I think if we can set the foundations early in the season, we'll have as good a chance as anybody."

    The Durbanites made two key off-the-field appointments in former batsman Dale Benkenstein as batting coach and mental coach Christo Spies.

    "I think there's fresher ideas with Dale coming in," Klusener said.

    "He comes with a load of experience as well as the ability to nurture youngsters.

    "We mustn't underestimate the work that Christo has done. We've spent a lot of hours with him and he's helped us with a lot of the mental aspects of the game."

    Klusener confirmed Van Wyk would be the No 1 wicketkeeper for the one-day competition, with former gloveman and captain, Daryn Smit, focusing on his batting and improving as a bowler.

    "He's [Smit] a very good legspinner and we'll be hoping he can contribute more in that way."

    Full squad were at the launch at Kingsmead bar Dave Miller, Keshav Maharaj & Prenelan Subrayen who are all in Sri Lanka. Plus Onions to join when the English season ends.

    SEPTEMBER 17, 2013
    South African cricket
    South Africa's domestic players brace for impact
    South Africa versus India was billed as one of the premier clashes of the 2013 calendar. Now, however, the tour is almost certain to be stunted from the original three Tests, if not abandoned altogether as the respective boards are locked in a power struggle. If the tour is scrapped, not only will the fans be deprived of some great cricket, Cricket South Africa's finances will also take a big hit. Every domestic cricketer could end up losing R160,000, writes Neil Manthorp in Business Day.

    In South Africa the percentage of Cricket SA's (CSA's) gross revenue that comes the way of the players is a little under 20%. If India's tour of South Africa at the end of 2013 is severely curtailed, as it now has to be if it is not cancelled altogether, the likely loss of revenue to CSA will be in the region of R200m. Twenty percent of that is R40m, of which 40% goes directly to the domestic players in the six franchises, a sum of about R2.7m. Each franchise has a contracted squad of about 17 players, which breaks down to an average of R160,000 per player.

    Yes Brock, I see our attempt of trying to stand up to the BCCI being futile. We will either be licking our wounds or we will grovel to them with our tail between our legs. Its unfortunate politics has got involved with cricket again.

    Kallis' view on JP Duminy being an all-rounder

    Jacques Kallis, arguably South Africa's best-ever all-rounder, believes JP Duminy can fulfil this role with aplomb for the Proteas' Test side in future.

    Kallis, a 162-Test veteran, has amassed 13 128 runs at an average of 56.10 and claimed 288 wickets at 32.43.

    Despite being 37, Kallis's flame is not out just yet, but he has struggled with injuries in recent years and the Proteas should start preparing for when he's not around anymore.

    And Kallis believes a man that could play a vital all-rounder role when he's not around is his Cape Cobras team-mate Duminy.

    Duminy was mainly considered as a part-time spinner at the start of his career, but has performed a more than adequate role for the Proteas in recent times, especially in limited-overs cricket.

    The off-spinner has taken only 12 wickets (at an average of 42.50) in 17 Tests but Kallis feels he could play a more important role with the ball in future.

    In an interview with the Cape Times, Kallis said Duminy can become a "fully-fledged" all-rounder in the Proteas' Test side.

    "He certainly has the potential and talent to succeed. He is a top batter and bowls more than useful off-spin. If he really works on his bowling, and puts the effort in, he can easily bowl 10-15 overs a day that is required from a top-class all-rounder. I really think JP can do it," said Kallis.

    Duminy has scored 789 runs in Tests at an average of 37.57.

    Great knock of 131 by Jon-Jon today. Much needed after last season struggles.

    100 for Dean Elgar in the reply

    Warriors v Knights at Port Elizabeth, Sep 23-24, 2013 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Also a 5-for for Colin Ingram with his leggies. Seems like JJ Smuts and him will be back up spinners to Harmer as they don't seem to back young leg-spinner Vaaltyn.
