Kleinveldt new Cobras T20 Captain
With the Proteas set to defend yet another title in the T20 format as the world’s number one, we can expect to see more exciting cricket closer to home when the domestic league kicks of soon.
Closer to the Cape, Western Cape Cricket (Pty) Ltd today announced that experienced all-rounder, Rory Kleinveldt, will captain the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras on their pre-season tour to Durban starting tomorrow. He will also take the reigns for the first few Sunfoil Series matches before captain Justin Ontong returns from duty with the Proteas in England and the ICC T20 World Cup. Vice captain, Dane Vilas, will remain in that position so that he can continue focussing on his game, contending for a spot in the national team and being mentored into leadership.
The Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras play against the Dolphins in a 3 day match from Thursday 13th to Saturday 15th September 2012.
