    2014-15 franchise fixtures were released today with the 50-over WC in mind.

    The franchise fixtures for all three domestic competitions for the 2014/15 season were announced on Wednesday.

    “With the ICC Cricket World Cup taking place next year February and March, we have scheduled the Momentum One-Day Cup to start as usual in October but the final rounds of league competition and the knock-out phase will take place in January and February 2015,” commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat.

    “This will allow our national players the opportunity to play competitive 50-over cricket before they depart for Australasia.

    “As a result the Ram Slam T20 Challenge will take place in November and December and again there will be opportunities in the latter stages of this tournament for those Proteas not involved in the Sunfoil test Series against the West Indies to show their skills.

    CSA declared last season’s triple-header at the Cell C Festival of Cricket a huge success and has decided to repeat the concept. The opening round of league play in the RAM SLAM will be a triple-header at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium in November, there will be another triple-header round at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead and the penultimate round will be a third triple-header at Bloemfontein’s Chevrolet Park.

    “The triple-header T20 fixture was exciting for both players and fans and we will repeat this concept on a rotational basis across the country.”

    The season will start and finish with the Sunfoil Series with the opening rounds being played at the end of September involving those Franchises not involved in the Champions League T20 Tournament in India.

    CSA has also added a third KFC T20 International match against the West Indies who tour South Africa at the end of the year. This will be played at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead on 14 January 2015 starting at 6pm CAT (SA, GMT+2). CSA had previously announced two T20 matches against the West Indies.

    “We are grateful to the West Indies for agreeing to a KFC T20 series of three matches.” concluded Lorgat.

    Adams praises pipeline coaches

    Big contributions from senior players and a well-managed pipeline were the keys to the Cape Cobras' Sunfoil Series success this season, according to coach Paul Adams.

    The Cobras clinched the competition by a whopping 33 points over the weekend to retain the series trophy with six wins from their 10 matches.

    While a settled batting unit produced three of the top five run-scorers in the competition and offspinner Dane Piedt finished as the leading wicket-taker, it was the success of their inexperienced pace attack which often stood out.

    With Johann Louw forced into retirement by injury and Beuran Hendricks and Rory Kleinveldt regularly called up for Proteas duty, the likes of Dane Paterson and Travis Muller were given more responsibility and responded by taking 42 wickets between them.

    "I think we faced quite a few challenges there but looked at it as an opportunity to give youngsters a chance to see to what they're capable of in an environment where they're learning and striving to be successful," said Adams.

    "That's been a key thing, as well as having our core players contributing big time throughout the season.

    "In losing Beuran to the national set-up and having injuries to key players, some others had to step up and it was really great to see the pipeline move through."

    In that regard, Adams paid tribute to the other coaches in the Western Cape set-up. With Western Province winning the CSA three-day competition, he feels that the young players coming through are being monitored intelligently.

    Shees, enough guys to make up nearly 3 sides.

    Some of those players would not have made it to the franchise level but we've lost some great talent.

    Contracting rules stipulate no more than about 17 to 18 contracted players per franchise in addition to their CSA contracted players. There also needs to be a minimum of 8 players of colour in the franchise contracted plus CSA contracted players for each franchise.

    NASHUA MOBILE CAPE COBRAS

    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

    WHITES (TWO + SEVEN + THREE = 12)

    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)
    Vernon PHILANDER (29) (right-arm seam, right-hand bat)
    Rory KLEINVELDT (31) (right-arm seam, right-hand bat)
    2013/14 Cobras contracted players
    Justin ONTONG (34) (right-hand bat, right-arm off-spin)
    Yaseen VALLIE (25) (right-hand bat)
    Dane PIEDT (24) (right-arm off-spin)
    Beuran HENDRICKS (24) (left-arm seam)
    Shaheen KHAN (27) (right-arm seam, right-hand bat)
    Lizaad WILLIAMS (21) (right-arm seam)
    Challenging for 2014/15 Cobras contracts
    Omphile RAMELA (26) (left-hand opening bat)
    Dane PATERSON (25) (right-arm seam)
    Keegan PETERSEN (21) (right-hand bat)
    Clyde FORTUIN (19) (right-hand bat, w/k)
    Zubayr HAMZA (19) (right-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.

    Obviously players above left at varying stages. Looking into it deeper.

    Hall & Thomas played for SA.

    Jennings, Lumb, Trott, Kieswetter & Myburgh all played SA u19s.

    Curran in an SA u17 training camp.

    Agathagelou, Madsen, Roderick, Cooke, ten Doeschate & Pietersen played some sort of domestic cricket in SA.

    The rest moved to England before u19 or didn't play any form of domestic cricket in SA and joined later.

    1. Ingram, White, Jacobs & Prince all averaged over 40 in the 4-day series.
    2. White & Ackermann finally seem to have nailed down 4-day spots.
    3. JJ Smuts becoming more crucial in limited overs cricket with his spin contributing more.
    4. Big chance Kelly Smuts will lose his contract. Edward Moore pushing for Michael Price's contract.
    5. Jonker still preferred middle order limited overs hitter over Kelly Smuts & James Price.
    6. Simon Harmer was the leading wicket-taker in 4-day cricket but needs more consisten support from seamers.
    7. Warriors may need to start realising that Theron is a limited overs specialist.
    8. Parnell showed more responsibility & consistency for the Warriors as the international cricketer when he played.
    9. Nqweni suffered due to action issues. Competing with young quicks like Nortje (injured for 2nd half of 13/14 season) & Mnyaka.

    Yeah I know. One could hardly say that players like Dernbach, Meaker and Prior learned their cricket in SA, but it does show you the talent that has left.

    But as I said, lots of those guys wouldn't make a franchise side. Berg and Groenewald are - at best - average country cricketers, and would hardly be first choice players for a franchise.

    Interesting that Von Berg won 4 day player of the year. He didn't get as many wickets as other bowlers, but I'd heard his performances had improved a lot this year. He is maybe fifth in line to play for the national team. Could jump to the front of that queue quickly as we all know the value of a genuine leg spinner. Has anyone see him bowl this year?

    Definitely.

    Another good example is Jason Roy. Comes back to Durban to play club cricket in our summer & doesn't dominate there even but plays for Surrey.

    Think his 73-ball hundred with the bat contributed as well.

    But yeah, saw him bowl in the 1-day competition and it was clear for everyone to see how much of an improved bowler he is. Neil McKenzie after a game went to go and tell the Titans coach that and even Imran Tahir went to ask him what his training methods were etc

    In the 1-day semi-final in Durban this season he was very impressive, getting good curve in and ripping some leg-breaks. Unlike Tahir and another leggie in our domestic competition, Eddie Leie, his stock ball is the leg-break. Bowls a good top spinner too. Getting back to that semi, Shaun Pollock doing comm work was so impressed he mentioned him during the Australia test series.

    In terms of pecking order

    I would say 4th or 5th for test cricket. But you would think its over for Robbie P in test cricket so probably 4th.

    Tahir, Harmer and Piedt competing at the moment and von Berg and Leie there-and-there abouts.

    INJURY NEWS

    Northants lose injured Kleinveldt

    Rory Kleinveldt has been withdrawn from his Northamptonshire contract by Cricket South Africa, three days after he was unveiled by the county as their overseas signing for the season. Northants revealed CSA pulled Kleinveldt out of his deal after their medical team diagnosed him with a knee injury and said the "late decision... is extremely disappointing."

    Northants acquired Kleinveldt's services as a replacement for Jackson Bird, who was due to play for them this season but had to pull out because of a back problem. Kleinveldt was to join the county on Wednesday for eight county championship matches and 10 T20 games, beginning with their four-day fixture against Yorkshire on April 20. His unavailability has left Northants still searching for an overseas professional.

    Kleinveldt has not played an international since July last year, on South Africa's tour of Sri Lanka, but had been part of national squads since then. He has also turned out regularly for Cobras, his franchise team, for whom he took 18 wickets at an average of 14.33 in his last three first-class games.

    It is also where he picked up his most recent niggle. Kleinveldt was ruled out of Cobras' final first-class game of the season last week after sustaining a knee injury in the match against Warriors the week before. That did not stop Northants from announcing Kleinveldt's signing on Tuesday.

    Kleinveldt is the second South African player in the injury list. Yesterday CSA announced left-armer Lonwabo Tsotsobe could miss this July's visit to Sri Lanka because he requires ankle surgery and will be out of action for up to three months. They have not made any statement regarding Kleinveldt.

    Despite Kleinvedlt pulling out of the county deal there are some South Africans in action in England. Graeme Smith is captaining Surrey, Alviro Petersen is back with Somerset, Ashwell Prince is playing his last season as a professional player at Lancashire and Kyle Abbott has started his time at Hampshire.
    Tsotsobe out of Sri Lanka tour

    Lonwabo Tsotsobe, the South Africa left-arm seamer, has been ruled out of the tour to Sri Lanka in July to facilitate his recovery from ankle surgery scheduled on April 16. He will be sidelined for up to three months.

    South Africa's team manager and doctor Mohammad Moosajee said Tsotsobe had been struggling for some time and a gap in the calender had finally emerged for treatment.

    "Lonwabo has been suffering from this ankle problem for the last year and a half," Moosajee said. "This is the first gap we have had which minimises his time out of the game. It's a fairly common injury among fast bowlers and will be conducted by a renowned ankle specialist in Pretoria.

    "The recovery time is quite extensive so Lonwabo will probably be unavailable for selection for the tour to Sri Lanka. But we will be working hard to have him ready for the tour to Zimbabwe in August."

    His right ankle posterior talar impingement syndrome had made him miss the T20 series against New Zealand in December 2012 and has been a problem since.

    He had not been part of the squad bound for Sri Lanka for a limited-overs series last July, but was drafted into the XI despite a recurrence of the injury. Apart from one match-winning 4 for 22, he was largely unimpressive and attracted criticism from the coach Russell Domingo regarding his fitness and commitment
