    Some National camps and squads picked

    CSA SPIN CAMP IN INDIA

    CRICKET SOUTH AFRICA (CSA) today announced a squad of eight spin bowlers and six batsmen to attend a spin bowling course in Mumbai, India, from May 14 to 21.

    “The programme has been one of the major features on the CSA HP Skills Programme and has been held annually either in India or Sri Lanka,” commented CSA High Performance Manager, Vinnie Barnes.

    “Simon Harmer, Dane Piedt, Prenalen Subrayen and Keshav Maharaj who have been on previous spin camps, have seen the benefits of working with top Indian spin coaches. It has also become quite an important initiative to improve our batsmen techniques and game plans against spin. Temba Bavuma, Rilee Rossouw and Stiaan van Zyl are some of the batsmen who have credited their improvement of batting against spin to the spin camp,” he added.

    The eight selected spin bowlers are: Bjorn Fortuin (bizhub Highveld Lions), Simon Harmer (Warriors), George Linde (Cape Cobras), Keshav Maharaj (Sunfoil Dolphins), Tshepo Ntuli (VKB Knights), Aaron Phangiso (bizhub Highveld Lions), Dane Piedt (Cape Cobras), Prenelan Subrayen (Sunfoil Dolphins).

    The selected batsmen are: Temba Bavuma (bizhub Highveld Lions), Reeza Hendricks (bizhub Highveld Lions), Smangaliso Nhlebela (KZN Coastal), Hector Ngobeni (Limpopo), Stiaan van Zyl (Cape Cobras), Dane Vilas (Cape Cobras).

    Both Nhlebela and Ngobeni have been identified through the CSA Franchise Regional Academy system.

    The group will be accompanied by CSA batting consultant, HD Ackerman, and CSA spin bowling consultant, Claude Henderson.
    NATIONAL ACADEMY

    The men’s programme will be split into four phases and run from May 23 2016, culminating in the series against the Sri Lankan Emerging Touring team in the second half of August.

    “The National Academy Programme forms a very strategic part of our developmental pipeline,” commented CSA General Manager: Cricket, Corrie van Zyl, “and has as its aim to prepare young players for the demands of professional cricket. These selected players that are carefully identified include previous graduates of the SA U/19 programme, performing Senior Provincial and emerging Franchise players.

    “this past year saw a highly successful SA Emerging Squad tour of Sri Lanka with all the players being drawn from the National Academy and a number of them have already gone on to the next level of making their respective Franchise squads. This programme must assist CSA and its Members to develop the identified players in such a way that will produce quality players for our domestic competitions as well as prepare them for future international participation.”

    Through the partnership with Powerade as the CSA High Performance programme sponsor, the programme has the ability to make a meaningful impact on the development of these identified players.

    SA U19 SQUAD FOR SRI LANKA


    Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Tuesday announced the 16-man South Africa under-19 squad to tour Sri Lanka in June.

    The team will be led by all-rounder, Wiaan Mulder, of Gauteng.

    The tour, from June 25 to July 13, will see the sides play two Youth Tests as well as three One-Day Internationals (ODI). The side will see some exciting changes as 14 players will make their debut.

    Coach Lawrence Mahatlane believes that this is a good opportunity for players who had previously just missed out on selection to show what they are made of and to prove themselves.

    Mahatlane is looking forward to mining fresh talent and preparing for the new cycle of the Under-19 programme.

    “It’s the start of a new cycle and we’re looking forward to starting afresh with exciting new talents. We have a really good mixture of youngsters and some experienced campaigners who would have previously only just missed out on a chance to make the side. It’s true that there are some injuries that are keeping some of our more experienced players from touring, but this gives an opportunity for new players to show us what they’re made of,” the coach said.

    “It’s always good to tour the subcontinent and expose our players to conditions that they would not otherwise play in. The Test series especially is going to be really exciting, I think this will be a good growth-opportunity for the players under the leadership of Wiaan Mulder. He has a lot of experience and good knowledge of the game to offer the youngsters. I look forward to seeing him captain the side and leading from the front.”

    Mulder is excited and humbled to be named captain.

    “I know a lot of people say this, but this is a dream come true,” he said. “I’m really excited and feel extremely privileged to be selected for the team firstly, and second, to be given the job of captaining the team. I don’t take this opportunity lightly and I’m excited to get to Sri Lanka and play good cricket.”

    Mulder was part of the team that took part in the ICC Under-19 World Cup. He is keen to take the lessons from the tournament and implement them with this new group.

    “We learned a lot of things in Bangladesh, it was a tough tour, but that’s gone and we have new and exciting challenges ahead of us. Playing Test cricket at this age is a huge privilege, even if it is the four-day version, and I want to take this team forward and leave the game in a better place than I found it,” he concluded.

    The team depart for Colombo on June 17. They will gather for a training camp beforehand.

    Coca-Cola South Africa Under-19 team to Sri Lanka:

    Wiaan Mulder (18) (captain, Gauteng), Eathan Bosch (18) (KZN Inland), Jerome Bossr(18) (KZN), Jesse Christensen (18) (Western Province), Jade de Klerk (17) (Eastern Province), Wandile Makwetu (17) (Gauteng), Akhona Mnyaka (17) (Border), Daniel Moriarty (17) (Western Province), Vezokuhle Mtungwa (17) (Boland), William Sendin (18) (Boland), Keenan Smith (17) (Eastern Province), Siphamandla Krweque (17) (Border), *Joshua van Heerden (18) (Northerns), Reinhard van Tonder (18) (Free State), Ricardo Vasconceles (19) (Boland), *Mitchell van Buuren (18) (Gauteng).

    *Van Buuren replaces van Heerden for the ODI series.

    Dolphins welcome Grant Morgan as new head coach | Sunfoil Dolphins


    New head coach Grant Morgan is looking forward to instilling his fresh philosophy in the Sunfoil Dolphins squad of 2016/17 and taking the Durban franchise forward with the talented crop of players that now have a wealth of experience within it.

    As reported previously, the like of Cricket South Africa contracted players Kyle Abbott and David Miller have left the Dolphins and will continue their career at the Warriors and VKB Knights respectively however Morgan backs the talent that remains wholeheartedly.

    “It is a bit of blow to lose players like Kyle (Abbott) and David (Miller) however there is a huge amount of talent still left here at the Dolphins!” says Morgan passionately.

    “There is no doubt that a very competitive Dolphins team will still represent the Dolphins in all formats come the start of the new season,” he adds.

    Morgan is also confident the strength of the province’s two Provincial squads – KwaZulu-Natal and KZN Inland – during the 2015/16 season will help create a healthy competition for places in the Dolphins mix come the new season.

    “Inland having performed extremely well this past season and KZN having done nicely, outside of the 50 overs competition, has also meant that there are guys waiting in the wings who are hungry to play franchise cricket.

    “You never want to lose anyone – they’re like family; their blood is Dolphins green – but at the same time, their departure gives some other guys a massive opportunity to show what they can do at Franchise level.”

    The conclusion of the South African domestic 2015/16 season saw Mat Pillans join Surrey in England, Thandi Tshabalala retired from the game, both Daniel Sincuba and Jonathan Vandiar joined The Unlimited Titans while Ryan McLaren – no longer a CSA contracted player – has opted not to sign a contract with any South African Franchise for the 2016/17 season.

    Former KwaZulu-Natal semi-professional contracted players Khalipha Cele (Free State) and Craig Kirsten also won’t be part of the Sunfoil Dolphins and KZN mix next season while Ayavuya Myoli – previously uncontracted but who played much of the RAM Slam T20 Challenge for the Dolphins – has signed with the bizhub Highveld Lions.

    Mthokozisi Shezi’s return to Durban on a permanent basis, having re-joined the Dolphins on a loan from the Cape Cobras during the second half of the 2016/17 season, is a pleasing one while exciting talents Sibonelo Makhanya, Sarel Erwee and Tshepang Dithole have all earned Franchise contracts for the first time.

    “I was privileged enough to coach youngsters like De Kock, Bavuma and Hendricks while I was at the Highveld Strikers a few years ago and it is always great to see young talents like that making their way up the ladder.

    “Our younger guys like Sibs (Makhanya), Andile (Phehlukwayo) and a few others are also massively exciting and certainly have the talent; for me, this season is all about trying to get them to settle,” says Morgan.

    The Dolphins don’t have any reason to believe that Imran Tahir won’t turn out for them in 2016/17 however confirmation of this is only expected in the near future due to the world class leg-spinner yet to sign his CSA contract.

    “The vast majority of our squad has been with us for some time now and we fully back their ability and talent to take us as a Franchise to where we want to be,” says Sunfoil Dolphins CEO, Pete de Wet.

    “With Grant (Morgan) at the helm, we look forward to him harnessing this talent as best he can and helping each player, as well as our team as a whole, realise their full potential,” he adds.

    The VKB Knights have netted a big fish by securing the services of Proteas batsman, David Miller.

    The big hitting batsman will be making Bloemfontein his new home as from next season.

    Miller is expected to feature heavily for the Knights during the Ram Slam T20 which will be played towards the end of the year.

    The player is currently in India where he is representing and captaining the Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League.

    This morning, Millers’ former franchise, the Dolphins, wished both him and his Proteas teammate, Kyle Abbott all the best for the next chapter in their careers.

    Knights CEO, Johan van Heerden, told Courant that with Miller, Theunis de Bruyn, Marchant de Lange and Robin Petersen joining the team, they could become a force to be reckoned with.

    “We’ve been working quite some time to see if we couldn’t get the Knights to the level where they should be.

    “It’s been a long time since we’ve have silverware and we tried everything possible to get someone, not just someone but a team that can take us forward.

    “It a pleasure to able to announce that David Miller informed us last night (Tuesday) that he will be relocating to Bloemfontein and will be playing his cricket here by us.”

    The West Indies all-rounder, Andre Russell, is also set to return to the side, however it’s all pending his hearing regarding the doping allegations.
    THE VKB Knights Board of Directors has announced that Theunis De Bruyn has accepted the offer to lead the team as captain for this coming cricket domestic season.

    “The appointment of De Bruyn as captain starts a new era for the VKB Knights. Theunis comes from one of the most successful Cricketing Clubs (TUKS) which has won the title of World Club Champs in Dubai. We are confident that he will install a positive mindset and approach towards the modern game,” commented VKB Knights Chief Executive Officer, Johan van Heerden.

    Head Coach Nicky Boje welcomed De Bruyn’s appointment and paid tribute to his predecessor, Werner Coetsee.

    “Werner Coetsee has done a great job over the last couple of years but we are moving into a new era and I am excited that Theunis de Bruyn will be leading the way forward for this coming season. I wish him all the best as Captain.”

    De Bruyn has had an outstanding career to date, being the third quickest South African batsman to reach the landmark of 1 000 first-class runs, doing so in 20 innings. He represented the South Africcan A team against the England Lions at home and on the tour to India in 2015. He was part of a loan deal with The Unlimited Titans last season to play for the VKB Knights franchise during the T20 Domestic campaign and is now a permanent member of the Knights squad.

    “I feel honoured and privileged to captain the Knights Franchise next season,” he commented. “These are exciting times for the Franchise, with new players building their careers, a new environment and structures and these developments are leading towards something positive. The Franchise is looking to create a new culture and legacy which is a winning one and hopefully within the next few years bring us some silverware,” he concluded.

    Notice Tsolekile, Tsotsobe, Matshikwe and Mbhalati lost their contracts with their 'involvement' in match-fixing with Gulam Bodi. Not sure on the reasons behind Jean Symes and Shaylen Pillay losing their's - if it was just performances.

    Thanks for this SeamUp.

    I was surprised to hear about Tsolekile and Tsotsobe when this news came out. I wonder if more will come of it.

    Is there any particular new players we want to keep our eye on?

    I am pretty sure I saw Mbhalati implicated and matshikwe was in the Lions team and suddenly no contracts ? Looks dubious.

    I suppose we look at what the SA 'A could look like ? Exlcuding the players that are going to the Carribean for the tri-series (Rossouw,Behardien,Parnell,Morris,Shamsi,Phangiso) and are in the test team (Elgar,Cook Bavuma,Piedt)

    4-day Team

    Heino Kuhn
    Reeza Hendricks
    Omphile Ramela
    Stiaan van Zyl
    Theunis de Bruyn
    Qaasim Adams/Yaseen Vallie
    Dane Vilas
    Vernon Philander/David Wiese/ Dwaine Pretorius
    Simon Harmer/Keshav Maharaj
    Dane Paterson/Beuran Hendricks/Craig Alexander
    Hardus Viljoen/Marchant de Lange

    * Heino Kuhn was tremendous last season in the 4-day competition and if there are any slip-ups he will be there to give it a go.
    ** Reeza Hendricks is more of a selection that he has talent and been identified but had a poor last season and the move to the Lions could get him going again.
    *** Middle order spots probably behind Bavuma, Duminy and Rossouw but big runs here and who knows.
    **** Harmer recently had test possession and Maharaj probably one of the most improved SA cricketers. One off-spin, one slow-left-arm
    ***** Beuran Hendricks is struggling with injuries continually and I 'm not sure if he is fit. It probably is a big concern at the moment. I personally wouldn't include Paterson if Philander goes and Alexander is always way down my list but on pure stats last season they may get goes. Viljoen and de Lange have pace but are very erratic , again on pure stats you could probably expect to see them. Personally would like to see that next generation below challenged but probably need a big 2016/17 season to knock these guys off their perch.


    Limited overs players you could see involved : Dave Miller, Vaughn Jaarsveld, Grant Thomson, JJ Smuts, Khaya Zondo, Andile Phehlukwayo, Eddie Leie, Mthokozisi Shezi, Sisanda Magala

    * Miller after getting dropped will have to be involved here. van Jaarsveld flatters to deceive but when you watch him you got to wonder where it all went wrong. Think Thomson could be a bolter in the limited overs side. Looked a good clean striker of the ball while JJ Smuts is always valuable with his batting and slow left-armers. Right now Phehlukwayo probably deserves to get into the limited overs squad but is behind Savage for me in performances in the longer version. I think Leie is slipping down the pecking with Shamsi around and the useful all-round potential of Fortuin ,Linde and Subrayen.

    I then look at that younger group who could easily be picked for the SA 'A' side inside the next 18 months with decent performances and development to come so I guess these are the one's to watch this season coming. I think a few of them it is a big season because guys like White, Ackermann, vd Dussen, D. Hendricks, Conway, Vandiar are probably looking at their ages and decent opportunities at franchise level and saying I need to start nailing it with consistency now.

    Batsmen : Zubayr Hamza (FC) , Jason Smith (LO) , David White (FC) , Colin Ackermann , Rassie van der Dussen, Dominic Hendricks (FC) , Devon Conway, Aiden Markram, Jonathan Vandiar (LO)
    all-rounders : Calvin Savage , Matt McGillivray, Dayyaan Galiem
    Spinners : George Linde , Prenelan Subrayen , Bjorn Fortuin
    Seamers : Lizaad Williams , Tshepo Moreki , Daryn Dupavillon, Rabian Engelbrecht , Duanne Olivier, Corne Dry , Keith Dudgeon, Lungi Ngidi

    * van der Dussen, Ackermann, D.Hendricks, Dupavillon, Olivier have outside chances of getting SA 'A' selection on 2015/16 performances.
    ** Galiem, Engelbrecht, Dudgeon need to earn franchise contracts still

    Captain Wiaan Mulder and Wandile Makwetu are probably the standouts in the SA u19 side that I am aware of but quite a few new names. Huge talk about these two. Mulder having Kallis-type shoes to fill and Makwetu as the star 'black African' batsman SA are looking towards.

    So nothing different from Parnell last night ?

    Practice Match: West Indies Cricket Board President's XI v South Africans at Port of Spain, May 29, 2016 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Also Domingo needs to start bringing the young players on otherwise he needs to go. Could this be his last tour ?

    Seamers : Andrew BIRCH (31), Basheer WALTERS (30), Sisanda MAGALA (25), Aya GQAMANE (27), Thando MNYAKA (23)

    In : K.Smuts, Abbott
    Out : M.Price , Mbane



    Other players in the region :

    EASTERN PROVINCE

    Eddie MOORE (23) - Opening batsman [involved with Warriors end of last season]
    Anrich NORTJE (23) - Strike bowler got his Warriors debut last season]
    Ngazibini SIGWILI (21) - former SA u19 left-arm seamer - SA Academy 2016
    Akhona KULA (26) - spinner
    For some reason I thought I saw Kelly Smuts replace Michael Price in the new contracts but that did not happen.

    Only changes are Abbott's arrival and Ngazibini Sigwili replacing Lundi Mbane. Plus Lesiba Ngoepe leaving Western Province/Cobras to join the Warriors.

    Proteas fast Kyle Abbott will be the major arrival at the Warriors for the 2016/17 season after moving south from the Sunfoil Dolphins.

    The 28-year-old leaves the KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union (KZNCU), having spent his entire career based in Durban.

    Abbott made his debut for the franchise back in 2008/09 and went on to play in 39 four-day matches, taking an impressive 149 wickets in the process. He has 240 wickets in his entire first-class career, including 21 for South Africa in just seven tests.

    He also has over 200 limited-overs wickets to his name for the Dolphins and for South Africa.

    Another newcomer is batsman Lesiba Ngoepe from the Western Cape.

    The rest of the Warriors’ side has a familiar look about it, with stalwarts like Jon-Jon Smuts, Simon Harmer, Colin Ingram, Andrew Birch and Basheer Walters still on their books.


    WARRIORS SQUAD: Colin Ackerman, Andrew Birch, Gihahn Cloete, Clyde Fortuin, Ayabulela Gqamane, Simon Harmer, Colin Ingram, Christiaan Jonker, Kyle Abbott, Lesiba Ngoepe, Jerry Nqolo, Sisanda Magala, Thandolwethu Mnyaka, Michael Price, Jon-Jon Smuts, Mohamed Vallie, Basheer Walters, David White, Ngazibini Sigwili.
