    Looks like the U19 getting hammered again. Maybe a 7-0 loss will cause some soul searching and rethinking of the u19 coaching and admin structure.

    Good to see Janneman Malan, Breetzke, Van Tonder (a 100) & de Zorzi in the runs.

    Ntini coming from nowhere and producing decent results with the ball.

    Looks like Bryce Parsons got injured but he is pretty much a lock. Nkwe is talking of involving him with the Lions next season.

    Really encouraged that Bird was back in the runs last game. Also a nice little addition is he is bowling his chinamen. 6 overs 0-12 in the current game.

    Ruan Terblance is a serious talent too. Got a 100 and a 50 & was probably the next best batsman on the Indian tour. Think he is more suited to the longer version.

    The seam bowling is a concern. Gerald Coetzee seems like injuries keeps effecting him and Lifa Ntanzi has been taken apart. The one positive is Achille Cloete.

    My predictions for Thando Ntini: he will go on to establish himself domestically in all formats over the next couple of years, then he will play a couple of games for South Africa A. After a bit more domestic success he will be called up to the ODI team for some low profile series overseas, but he doesn't play a game. After which he drifts out of cricket over the next couple of seasons, despite still having a top notch domestic record. A few years will pass playing club cricket and looking at employment outside the game, before he regains his state contract in the most inspiring story of the off season.

    In other words, the South African Alister McDermott
    Right arm help yourself

    I used to play in the nets with Ntini while I was waiting to be picked up from primary school. Was a good 5 or 6 years older than him but he was a useful little batsman even at such a young age.

    Cool story, I know.

    A couple of articles by Symcox regards the structure and failings of cricket in SA. I pretty much agree with him. I think those '4 pillars' CSA did try to maintain and have made a clear attempt with sending players to India the U19/ emerging teams etc, but ultimately poor administration and poor coaching has resulted in those structures failing the players in SA. Needs to be sorted. The FC is a mess and while I think quotas are to blame to and extent, I think that has more to do with poor implementation than policy itself. It has become much more about politics than actually trying to improve structures to overcome the past social problems. But that whole problem is a social issue that effects all of SA not just cricket.

And if not is the problem with him or with the system that's feeding players into the U19 setup? (or perhaps it's both)
    Mahatlane does not seem to be able to improve players nor get them to the requisite standard needed for franchise cricket. I reckon there are better coaches than him and that goes for black coaches as well

    Great to see from Breetzke. 100-making was a serious ability he always had. Combining that talent with the output we expect is going to be serious.

    Runs for Janneman Malan too. I know he's in the one-day A squad for India, but maybe he should have been in the four-day squad as well, ahead of Pieter.

    Yep. I think J. Malan deserves a real shot at higher levels just through weight of runs across all formats. van Tonder scoring runs as well.

    A few other updates.

    In : Nandre Burger (Lions)
    Out : Dayyaan Galiem (Titans), JP Duminy (retired)



    Obviously with provincial system coming there could be opportunities for Western Province and Boland players. WP will have Bird & Ntini. Boland Terblanche & Cloete. Stellenbosch University has been doing really well too. Take someone like Bedingham who was facing obscurity and also left-arm spinner Kyle Simmonds who is in the SA Emerging side and has now moved too Northerns.

    Western Province 2019/20

    http://www.wpca.org.za/news/wp-annou...ntracted-squad

    The senior provincial squad for 2019/2020 is: Qaasim Adams, Junaid Dawood, Isaac Dikgale, Justin Dill, Matthew Kleinveldt, Carlos Koyana, André Malan, Mihlali Mpongwana, Jack Newby, Thando Ntini, Ryan Klein
    The following players form part of the extended high performance group: Givon Christian, Mujahid Toffar, Diego Du Plessis, Bonga Makhakha, Luke Philander, Liam Goodall, Tayo Walbrugh, Jonathan Bird, Siya Plaatjie and Imraan Philander.

    Geoffrey Toyana has left his pipeline at Lions/Gauteng to take charge of Northerns.

    Geoffrey Toyana has been appointed as the new head coach of the Northerns Senior Provincial side.

    Toyana, who boasts cricket pedigree as a player and coach, takes over from JP Triegaardt, who made his return to Northern Cape Cricket earlier this month.

    The former Transvaal and Easterns man made 71 List A and 84 first-class appearances during his career as a left-handed batsman. His performances at senior level earned him his franchise debut in 2004/05, where he went on to feature in 20 four-day games and record six half-centuries over a three-year period for the Titans. He then returned to Easterns towards the back end of his playing career.

    Following his retirement from professional cricket in 2008, Toyana was appointed Easterns' head coach. Not long after, he joined the Highveld Lions as assistant head coach in the summer of 2011/12, before becoming the first black African to serve as a franchise head coach the following season.

    Toyana flourished in his first year at the helm, leading the Lions to the T20 title, as well as joint-holders of the One-Day Cup and finished second in the four-day competition. His six-year tenure brought with it four titles and earned him stints with the SA Under-19s and SA Emerging teams. His most recent outing came as assistant head coach of the Paarl Rocks in the inaugural Mzansi Super League last December.

    With a wealth of experience, the 45-year-old is an important acquisition as the senior side aim to build on last season’s successes, which saw them finish joint-winners with Eastern Province in the CSA 3-Day Provincial Cup and runners up in the CSA Provincial One-Day Challenge.

    “To be back at SuperSport Park, where I enjoyed a five-year career with the Titans, is a huge honour for me," expressed Toyana.

    “Having spent last year behind a desk, I am looking forward to the prospect of coaching again and being out on the park, so it’s great opportunity to do something I’m passionate about.”

    “Looking at the side, it is a young squad with some exciting talent and I can’t wait to hit the ground running as we build on last season’s triumphs. One of the main keys to success is consistency, and it’s important to keep on improving and not regress."

    “The ultimate goal is to produce players for the Titans and, having previously been involved with franchise as a player, I know the culture and understand what is required in order to compete at that level.”

    Toyana will take charge of the squad from Monday, July 15, and Cricket Operations Manager Johan Muller is looking forward to welcoming him to the set-up.

    “We are fortunate to have acquired a coach with such a high level of the experience, success and hard work - his record speaks for itself. We signed talented prospects two years ago and I believe Geoff is the ideal coach to ensure that those players are ready to perform at franchise level,” commented Muller.
    Northerns Senior Provincial squad 2019/20:

    Rubin Hermann, Gionne Koopman, Kyle Simmonds, Gregory Mahlokwana, Victor Mahlangu, Rivaldo Moonsamy, Luvuyo Nkese, Gideon Peters, Jiveshen Pillay, Diego Rosier, Ruben Trupelmann
    Obviously with the Provincial system coming in this will be very interesting to watch. Only new addition is Kyle Simmonds from Boland.
    Otherwise Moonsamy falls down from Titans. Hermann, Koopman, Mahlokwana, Mahlangu, Rosier all played for Titans last season.
    Local boys : Hermann, Peters (Waterkloof), Trumpelmann (Affies), Moonsamy (St Albans), Mahlokwane (Cullinan), Mahlangu (Mamelodi), Nkese (Soshunguve)
    Pillay obviously joined Tuks last season after leaving finishing school at Maritzburg.

    Obviously as a union they will be concerned they aren't producing local talent like their great years ie AB, Faf, Rudolph, Kuhn, Steyn, Morkels but always would be difficult to maintain.
