A bit later than usual this pre-season. Especially with 'A' series long under way in Australia.
A big season coming up and possibly some opportunities with what feels like the end of an era with no more Graeme Smith & Jacques Kallis.
But Champions League coming up. Then domestic season kicks off late September, early October with 2 rounds 4-day Sunfoil series. Then Momentum One-Day Cup runs straight through October with 1 or 2 WC spots up for grabs. A lot of ODI cricket means a lot of the One-day players will miss domestic cricket. Ram Slam T20 gets going in November.
New quotas are in place which is not ideal at all. Used be 4 players have to start with 1 'black African' now 5 players of colour have to start of which 2 are 'black African'. Balancing of teams will be difficult and there will be good white players missing out.
