    Season 7 Press Releases

    As soon as it emerged that Mashonaland had picked spinner Ben Joshi in the first round of the pre-season draft, the rumour mill started up, with many wondering about where this left Mashonaland veteran Saqlain Mushtaq. Mushtaq was the standout performer for the struggling Zimbabwean team last season, as he took 47 wickets at 25.34 (with the next best being Khan's 39 at 39.26), and also managed two lower order fifites. While he only took 14 wickets in the 9 one day games that he played in, he averaged a perfectly respectable 27. Ben Joshi, however, comes to the team with a strike rate under 34 and a superior average in both first class and one day cricket.

    When asked about the likelihood of Joshi paying over Mushtaq, Mashonaland manager Andyc said that "Joshi will be our first choice spinner for the season in the first class games. He is more of an attacking spinner than Saqlain, and his superb strike rate will greatly aid the team. Saqlain will be likely to play, however, if the conditions suit or if Ben is injured. In one dayers, both players will most likely be starting, as they each have equally outstanding records in the shorter version." When asked about the team's next draft pick, Andyc declined comment, saying that he will first "have to look at the available players, the current team balance, and discuss these things with my 2nd XI manager."

    ACT secure highly sort after keeper

    A early draft pick ensured that WCC heavy weights ACT picked up their number 1 man in the draft. South African international AB De Villiers was sort after by a number of managers but he eventually found his way to the Comets. Head coach Simon Fitzsimmons has expressed his delight at securing the talented wicketkeeper batsman, "He's an excellent player and he will give our side some much needed balance", Fitzsimmons went on to explain that he hopes that De Villiers can mature into a better batsman than he already is, "Like any young batsman he is prone to the odd rash shot, but hopefully we can get him to play within himself a bit."

    The ACT will now continue to stregthen the First Class side, theres no doubting that Tamil Nadu are still the benchmark of World Club Cricket and we are looking to their team for inspiration, until we can say that we are as good if not better than them we will do our best to improve this outfit. A Batsman or Fast bowler are expected to be top of the ACT's list in the 2nd round of the draft, however picking at 19th could be a blow in the hopes of picking up a high quality player...

    I can't believe you stuffed that up

    Kent Happy With Catch
    Kent manager Stephen Burpe was pleased when the news came through that they had acquired their first pick, Nuwan Kulsekara. Burpe told the media today that "Nuwan will definitely bolster our pace bowling ranks. He will definitely become a vital cog in our first-class blueprint, and will help solidify our one-day bowling attack." Burpe is already considering a number of options for the second round, again being in the middle of the order for picks.

    Binny and Goughy Sign For South Australia

    Highly rated spinner Trevor Binny has agreed to a one-year contract with South Australia Cricket Association, manager Håkon Mørk revealed today. Binny is a further part of strengthening the first-class side, who gave up the title to Tamil Nadu last season, and also strengthens the one-day bowling following the departure of bowling phenomenons James Anderson and Malinga Bandara.

    Comparisons were made during the press conference between the current South Australian side and the Indian Test side of the 1970s, whose spin attack always struck fear into opposition when playing at home but were considerably less effective overseas. However, Mørk claimed that "our bowlers are good enough to take wickets on any surface, and they'll prove that this year."

    South Australia also strengthened their coaching staff by employing assistant manager Kev Goughy. Goughy had been considering the offer for some time before finally accepting, and it is hoped that he will lead the 2nd XI to glory before pursuing his own career.

    Ali opens up for Colts

    Colts continue their push for the OD Championship with the signing of Pakistan opener Ashraf Ali. The opener is expected to be joined at the top of the order by either countrymen Salman Butt or young Indian wicket-keeper batsmen Pradeep Chawla. His potential partnership with these batsmen is hoped to be major factor in the Colts attempt to win their inaugural OD Championship.

    During his time in the Pakistan domestic competition and his former WCC club Lahore Ashraf Ali has proven to be solid opening batsmen in both forms. His move to club is also hoped to boost a weak top order in FC cricket also. It expected that there maybe one more addition to the Colts OD line up, but like Ashraf Ali, this player will also be required to meet FC requirements of the Colts.

    Ashraf Ali has been given squad number 2.

    Western Australia are deligthed to announce the signing of F Milligan. Milligan will take the new the ball with H Jenkins in both forms of the game. Jenkins had a stunning debut season WA, but lacked any quality new ball partners. Milligan and Jenkins will be one of the most feared opening duo in the divison, both averaging under 20 in 4day cricket.

    The news couldn't have been better today for Western Province. Having the 22nd draft pick and receiving their first pick was certainly a blessing for the South African side.

    Both Jack McNamara and Ian Markus expressed delight at the announcement that Tony Ballard will be joining Western Province in season 7. Tony is a highly talented opening bowler who has made his way through the junior ranks of South Africa and the Allan Donald bowling academy.

    Manager Ian Markus today released a statement after the news was released "Both Jack and I had spoken a lot with Allan (Donald) about which young fast bowler at the academy was ready to step into first XI cricket. We didn't have any hesitation after seeing Tony in the nets and seeing his performances on some highlight tapes".

    Asked about his second round draft picks Ian admitted that the side would be focussed on aquiring a batsman to help the side win the first class premiership.

    South African Captain Joins Yorkshire.

    Yorkshire Cricket Club today announced at a press conference that South African International Captain Graeme Smith will join their squad for Season 7 of the WCC.

    Smith was signed to boost the batting line up where no batsman averages over 47, and will captain Yorkshire in both forms of the game.

    "Signing Smith is big. The squad is excited to have him with us and we expect he'll score plenty of runs for us, while keeping his big trap shut. Our batting line up leaves much to be desired and Smithy will be a definite improvement" said manager Greg Thomas.

    "I look forward to batting with Graeme. He'll bring a lot to this side" remarked stalwart Yorkshire batsman, W Tendulkar.

    Smith is expected to open the batting with countryman Herschelle Gibbs. Smith was unusually quiet at the press conference, as he was eating a lot of free pies provided by the club.

    Karachi obtain W Jaffer

    Karachi are pleased to announce the acquisition of W Jaffer in the first round of the Draft. W Jaffer was the only player to feature in both the 1st XI and 2 XI managers' provisional draft pick lists and so naturally we're pleased to be getting our first choice. W Jaffer will be slotted into the 1st XI for the first match.

    Gaurav Nayak and Daniel smith were very pleased to hear that they got the man they wanted in the draft, despite being 2nd last. "W Beasley is going to be one of the cornerstones in our OD batting lineup" 1st XI manager Nayak was quoted as saying. 2nd XI manager Smith had quite a bit more to say though ""We're very happy with our new signing Mr Beasley. He's a good all-round cricketer, and will add a lot of stability to our middle order in the One Day game. I'm looking forward to working with him." Obviously the talkative one.

    With Queensland having gone through quite a lot of change, with two new managers this season after the sterling leadership of the argonaut. Time will tell of the fortunes of the team, but as of now. The managers are very confident.

    Tasmania are very happy with the acquirement of Sachin Kotak, he will be a pivotal member of the OD side and fight for a place in the FC line up.

    Surrey are delighted to bring in Yashpal Singh to spearhead the 4D batting this year, as the best batsman in the draft, he was a fairly quick choice.
    Or something.

    Sean Maxwell returns to ACT

    WCC's alltime leading run scorer Sean Maxwell has been drafted to the ACT Comets in the 2nd round of this years draft. After scoring 1400 runs for the Comets in season three he has spent three more seasons in the sub continent playing for Karnataka. However with their exclusion from WCC the oppourtunity arose for Maxwell to return to Canberra, he is said to be delighted in the move and cant wait to return home.

    With a career batting average of just on 50 he adds something a littl bit more to the Comets already powerful line up, the role he'll play in the side isnt yet known, its unlikely at this stage he'll be able to take his number three spot from captain Ricky Ponting, but the decisions on the batting line up wont be made for some time. Coach Simon Fitzsimmons has expressed his delight that the talented batsman will come home finally. Fitzsimmons had this to say, "I've been trying to aquire his services for a number of seasons now, even through my time with ND and South Australia he has been on a so called hit list, however i am delighted that he is happy in returning home to Canberra where he will hopefully score a lot more runs and retire as a club legend."

    The Comets are firming as one of the teams to beat in season seven and this should just attract more support for them.
