Proteas back for One Day Cup
The Franchise teams taking part in the One-Day Cup will be boosted by the return of the Proteas players, after the completion of the Sunfoil Test series against Australia. The players have a three week break before the first Test match against Sri Lanka on December 15 at Centurion, and will more than likely take part in the competition starting from Friday, however some of the players will make a return in tomorrow's matches.
"We are three weeks out from the first Test match against Sri Lanka and even though it is not ideal to be playing limited overs cricket, time out in the middle will be good for the players. We have to manage the situation very carefully (lack of 4-day preparation) because it is what we have been dealt with, but I am sure that come December 15, the squad will be adequately prepared," said Proteas coach, Gary Kirsten.
A positive for the Proteas is that Hashim Amla'ssecond innings century has earned him a place up the ICC Test Player rankings log to sixth position, while team-mate AB de Villiers picks up two places and now sits in 12thspot.
The One-Day Cup enters into it's climax point, as the top three positions remain up for grabs for the competing Franchises. The team that finishes top at the end of the round-robin phase will automatically qualify for a home final, while the second and third placed teams will battle it out in a qualifier. The qualifier will take place on December 4, with the Final taking place on December 9.
Faf du Plessis of the Nashua Titans tops the average list with an average of 92.75, including two centuries and a top score of 120. Du Plessis was the top performer in last season's MTN40, and is continuing with his impressive form on the limited overs domestic circuit. South Africa's new fast bowling sensation, Marchant De Lange leads the bowling averages after conceding only 16 runs per match, and is the third highest wicket taker with nine wickets for the Titans, only behind Shadley van Schalkwyk (11) of the Chevrolet Knights and Charl Langeveldt (13) of the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras. The action continues on Wednesday with the Chevrolet Warriors looking to cement their No.1 position when they take on the bottom-placed bizhub Highveld Lions in East London. The Sunfoil Dolphins take on the Nashua Titans in Durban and the Chevrolet Knights play the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras in Bloemfontein.
