    2013/14 stats

    Cricket Records | Records | Momentum One Day Cup, 2013/14 - Dolphins | Batting and bowling averages | ESPN Cricinfo

    1. David Miller showed good strides in his 4-day batting. Better consistency from other young players like Zondo & Chetty too.
    2. Miller, D. van Wyk, M. van Wyk & Erwee averaged over 40 in the 4-day comp with the bat
    3. Abbott put together back-to-back seasons of wickets in the 4-day comp.
    3. Encouraging signs from Dupavillon in his debut season as a strike-bowler.
    4. Need to look after Savage & Kirsten with their injury records.
    5. With Smit continually growing his leg-spin bowling & the possible Tahir arrival again, Maharaj, Subrayen & Shamsi may get limited opportunities.
    6. Vandiar spent the majority of the season injured. Big season coming up for him for his future.

    Definite outs for various reasons for me are Uwe Birkenstock, Siyabulela Simetu, Johann Louw (retirement), Charl Langeveldt (probable retirement)

    Possible in(s) from outside the franchise: Mthokozisi Shezi (Dolphins) - Nothing official yet

    Think for ease of determining contracts for 'players of colour', it is easier to break down into 'Whites' & 'Players of Colour'

    COLOUR CODING: Western Province - Boland - Outside franchise


    SA contracted
    Jacques KALLIS (39) (top-order bat, right-arm seam) - Talk he may join the Titans for his last season
    Dale STEYN (31) (right-arm seam)
    2013/14 Cobras contracted players
    Graeme SMITH (33) (left-hand opening bat) - Not sure if he will continue playing domestic cricket in SA
    Andrew PUTTICK (34) (left-hand opening bat)
    Richard LEVI (26) (right-hand opening bat)
    Stiaan VAN ZYL (27) (left-hand bat)
    Dane VILAS (29) (right-hand bat & w/k)
    Justin KEMP (37) (right-hand bat, right-arm seam)
    Alistair GRAY (32) (right-hand opening bat)
    Challenging for 2014/15 Cobras contracts
    Travis MULLER (21) (right-arm seam)
    Pieter MALAN (25) (right-hand bat)
    Sybrand ENGELBRECHT (26) (right-hand bat, right-arm off-spin)

    PLAYERS OF COLOUR ( FIVE + SIX + FIVE = 16 + possibly Shezi)

    SA contracted
    Hashim AMLA (31) (right-hand bat)
    Jean-Paul DUMINY (30) (left-hand bat, right-arm off-spin)
    Robin PETERSON (35) (slow left-arm spin, left-hand bat)

    2013/14 season stats

    Cricket Records | Records | Sunfoil Series, 2013/14 - Cape Cobras | Batting and bowling averages | ESPN Cricinfo

    Cricket Records | Records | Momentum One Day Cup, 2013/14 - Cape Cobras | Batting and bowling averages | ESPN Cricinfo

    1. Ontong, van Zyl, Puttick & Vallie all averaged above 40 with the bat in 4-day series
    2. Major 7 bowlers in 4-day series (Hendricks, Piedt, Muller, Kleinveldt, Paterson, Khan, Kemp) averaged under 25 with the ball
    3. Dane Piedt was the leading wicket-taker in the 4-day series in the country. Over-took Robbie P for the spinners position at Cobras.
    4. Muller and Paterson for 4-day cricket with Khan & Williams for limited overs cricket when no Steyn, Hendricks, Kleinveldt & Philander
    5. Gray (35.60) will be challenged by Malan (38.46), Engelbrecht (44.33), Fortuin, Petersen (48.25) and Hamza for 1 or 2 batting spots in contract list from provincial cricket.
    6. Shezi possibly brought in as a 'black African' may increase bowling stocks that are packed already. Ramela disappointed averaging 16.64 in 4-day series.

    Playing Champions League Cricket is the difference between having a good financial year and breaking even, Western Province Cricket Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Professor Andre Odendaal said on Monday.

    The Cobras will take part in the 2014 edition of the tournament, which gets underway in September, after making it to the final of the domestic T20 competition.

    The CEO says they are hoping the team can win the title this time around.

    “The prize money now with the rand-dollar exchange rate is R25 million, if you win, of which the players get half. We reached the semi-finals in the first ever Champions League in 2009 and I think [coach] Paul [Adams] would like to go all the way this time.”

    The Cobras will welcome three new players to the franchise for the new season.

    Bowler Mthokozisi Shezi will join the Cobras from the Dolphins.

    Youngster Clyde Fortuin has joined the squad after winning the Under 19 World Cup with the Junior Proteas.

    Sybrand Engelbrecht also makes a return to the team after spending a few seasons out of the spotlight working on his skills.

    Bowler Aviwe Mgijima has been awarded with a contract after some good performances.

    “Mthokozisi did very well in the T20 tournament, bowling his fast-medium left-arm over. Young Clyde Fortuin was a star at the under 19 level as a wicket-keeper batsman,” Odendaal added.
    So it is announced here that those 4 (Engelbrecht, Fortuin, Shezi, Mgijima) are new additions to the contract list.

    No mention of Omphile Ramela, Dane Paterson & Travis Muller who became regulars last season so I would presume they got contracts but not included as new additions.

    Also no mention of players losing contracts but I would imagine Gray, Birkenstock, Simetu, Louw and Langeveldt are the most under threat or definite.

    Knights chased Richard Levi and leg-spinner Eddie Leie but both deals fell through.

    Leie was promised more regular game time at the Lions with Tahir moving back to the Dolphins.

    The domino effect with Tahir moving back to the Dolphins is that young chinaman bowler is set to leave the Dolphins and move to the Titans.
