    Zachary Birch will captain TN this season. After having a bit of a shocking debut season manager Andrew Cloete sttaed that he believed since being traded to Lancs Zac had matured alot and realised he wasn't such a star. The talented Birch has been a TN supporter since his birth and revealed he was saddened to be traded but realised the club did want him after pursuing him for most of the trading. He said that he felt he was now ready to step up to his tag as a star and said that hopefully he would lead TN to a great season, both with the bat and with his captaining.

    Heath Axelby has been named captain of the mighty South Australian team. In what will be his 3rd season with the club it will be his first time captaining the team. He was a pretty obvious choice to take over from the retired Darren Lehmann who has been doing lot of tactics work with the left arm spinner in recent months. Young tasmanian batsman, Hagis Midlane, who came to the club as part of a deal that was Andy Flower leave will be Axelby's deputy. Shane Bond and Ben Allen will join to form the leadership group.

    Western Australia have announced this year's captain will be Jason Gillespie with Chris Schofield as vice-captain. Andy Caddick and Jason Gillespie will be nominated as the new ball bowlers in all 3 forms off the game.
    Last year's captain was of course the recently promoted Damien Martyn.
    Or something.

    In Breaking news all colts Junior Coaches have been sacked after turning in yet more dissapointing rookies. It is beleived that the colts are looking outside of WCC for the replacements.

    Tasmanian Manager Ash Chaulk has flown in DK Lillee and SK Warne to show his squad just how to bowl.

    After there very poor performances in the friendlys including a loss which saw the ACT score 415/3 in 50overs Manager Ash Chaulk was ****ed at all the bowlers during pre season and believe they will have to sharpen up.

    on tha flip side he is quite happy with his teams batting as it exceeded his expectations

    A lot has been happening behind the closed doors of Western Province Cricket club.

    Whilst there has been little correspondence with the outside world of late countless hours of work and relaxation have gone into making season 5, another year that goes to Slats4ever's plans.

    With much liasing going on with the Colts side and AgeMaster, Western Province were able to snare some highly talented players to join there ranks. Usman Gul looks set to compliment Bishop Matthie from one end of Newlands, and another very talented allrounder in Quintin Friend has joined the ranks to jostle for a spot in the eleven. Dudley Jacobs, brother of Ridley has also made the journey to South Africa where it looks likely he will take the keeping gloves off Hamish Nelson in the longer form of the game. There was also some experience added to the side with Shahid Afridi and David Pipe looking to play important roles in this seasons title shot.

    Whilst the draft period was underway the boys in the rest of the squad took a short break to Sri Lanka where they kicked back in the jungle hunting elephants with the Colts team. At one stage things got a bit rowdy and Brett Lee from Colts forgot it was real and not paintball and shot Darden. Darden is in hospital recovering and it is hoped that he's right for the first round. Brett on the other hand is in jail hoping to be released for the first round.

    Training was then able to resume properly and the side looked to warm to the task. "There definately is a buzz in the air, and as coach I'm excited. The players know there's a challenge ahead but they're ready for it".

    Now the moment a lot of people have been waiting for the fisrt time in weeks Slats4ever has faced the media throng...

    Welcome back Slats it sounds like you've been having a busy time behind all those closed doors. A new challenge in division 3 4 day do you think the side has what it takes to take the title out?

    SLATS: It's going to be tough. A lot of sides out there are very good and to be honest I wouldn't be upset if we just survived in this division. I mean we're playing teams like Warwickshire who have the two best bowlers in the game opening up for them.


    Was it hard to let Nelson go elsewhere?

    SLATS4EVER: It was a tough decision but it really wasn't working here for him. He hadn't seemed to take a liking to the environment which he found himself in. It did hurt however to see him go to Warwickshire eventually. The public attack from both nibbs and Nelson on WP and me personally hurt. We treated him well and unfortunately he didn't respond nicely at all.

    Even though you had a great year last year 4 day the od'ers must have hurt. To be in the bottom division there is hardly ideal. Is there a chance of improvements this year?

    SLATS4EVER: The side know that their performances in the past really haven't justified a spot any higher. I think you'll see a new attitude here however in coming seasons. Whilst in the past the OD scene has been viewed as a place to try out new things in preparation for the 4 dayers, this season we're keen to really impress as much as we can in season 5.

    It is alleged that you've gone behind Cloete's back and stolen his junior development team is there any truth to this allegation?

    SLATS4EVER: no comment.

    Is there any truth to the fact that you personally went to India in your break to try to lure his rookies to your team?

    SLATS4EVER: Look guys the nets are calling me, my team needs me I really have to go.

    Somerset CC have officially named S Sharath their captain, sources confirmed today. In what is likely to be his final year in WCC, Sharath has been a successful batsman for colts and was traded to Somerset this year. The announcement follows the departure of Peter Bowler, who was captain for 3 years running.

    Sharath will captain in both forms.

    In a decision which everyone really knew was coming Trev Darden has been announced captain of Western Province for season 5, pipping last years successful captain Thilan Samaraweera.

    SLATS4EVER. it really only was a two horse race, Trevor had the inside run though cos he's captained the ROW side and will be a guarantee of starting in both forms. There's that much competition in this side Thilan may not get a run each week.

    Trevor made a few brief comments to the media saying he was "delighted and expected another successful year for WP"

    Upon returning from their final pre-season warm ups in Dubai, Warwickshire have announced that their season 5 captains would be the same as last season, with Sridharan Sriram retaining the four day captaincy, whilel Daniel Howarth keeps his one day job.

    Sriram has led the four day side to second and third place respectively in the previous 2 seasons. However with so much expected from Warwickshire in this form this season he'll under pressure to preform. With Howarth waiting on the wings, Sriram will have to get the results. Howarth in his first crack at captaincy led Warwickshire to the division 3 one day title, winning 8 games in the process, losing only two.

    South Australia Announce new Batting Coaches

    Former WCC stars Darren Lehmann and Jamie Cox have been appointed batting coaches for the South Australian redbacks for the next 3 seasons. Lehmann regarded as the best wcc player ever, played a major role in the redbacks success in the last few seasons. Cox, a former Kent, ACT and Tasmanian star has been recruited to aid the younger players coming through. With the guys on board SA will be expecting a lot from their younger guys in the coming seasons.

    You were very lucky to appoint Cox as Tasmania had approached him with a deal. But Tasmania wishes 'Coxy' goodluck.
