CRICKET EASTERN CAPE (PTY) LTD ANNOUNCES 2015-2016 SQUAD

7th October

Cricket Eastern Cape (Pty) Ltd today announced the 2015-2016 squad who under the captaincy of Colin Ingram will represent the Eastern Cape Franchise in the forthcoming season.

The squad will play their first Momentum One Day Cup match on Friday against the Titans in Pretoria and the team are raring to go. The off season saw some players undergoing medical interventions with Aya Gqamane and Christiaan Jonker both having had shoulder surgery at the end of last season. Under the supervision of the medical team both have made great strides in their rehabilitation and have been included in the team to play on Friday. Basheer Walters who had some minor injury concerns after a long season last year is now up to full strength.

Captain Colin Ingram had a great season with county Glamorgan and racked up the runs. With his 96 off 62 balls in a T20 match against Somerset Colin topped the runs list for Glamorgan. “I had a really good season there. I am however now looking forward to getting the domestic season going. With Malibongwe Maketa having taken over as Head Coach in December and the team playing some really good cricket at the end of last season I am very excited to take that momentum into the new season. As a team we have a lot to play for this year and under the leadership of Malibongwe who has such good values and energy I am confident we will have a good season” said Ingram

Five new signings – Mohammed (Yaseen) Vallie, Gihahn Cloete, Clyde Fortuin, David White and Somila Seyibokwe will bring to the squad a fresh approach and a new energy. Yaseen played for the Warriors last season when he was on loan from the Cobras for the T20 campaign. The 25 year old right hand batsman will strengthen the top order batting line up. As an effective off-spinner he took 2/5 when playing for the Warriors against the Titans in a T20 match last season.

Gihahn Cloete who played his first match for Griqualand West in 2009 is a left hand batsman who also keeps wicket. He went on to represent SA A and the Knights. An exciting prospect for the future, Gihahn toured with the SA A team to India earlier this year.

Cape Town born Clyde Fortuin joins the Warriors squad as a right hand batsman who can also keep wicket. The 20 year old made his Western Province debut in 2013 and will bolster the Warriors line up.

Somila Seyibokwe who was previously on a semi professional contract to Border Cricket has also been given a Warriors contract. Twenty seven year old Seyibokwe made his first class debut for Border in 2008.

David White (24) rejoins the Warriors squad as a contracted player after loosing his contract last season. David was at the National Academy this winter and toured Australia with the SA A team.

Rusty Theron has informed CEC that he will be retiring from cricket with immediate effect. Rusty is currently overseas and we are awaiting a statement from him but would like to (in his absence) thank him for the years he took to the field as a valued member of the Warriors team. His energy and precision death bowling made him one of the best in his field.

Coach Malibongwe Maketa said “We are excitied to have quality youngsters joining the squad. I am looking forward to the season and as this will be my first full season as head coach and I am eager to see what each of these players can bring to the team.”

The full 2015-2016 squad is as follows:
Colin Ackermann
Andrew Birch
Gighan Cloete
Clyde Fortuin
Ayabulelo Gqamane
Simon Harmer
Colin Ingram
Christiaan Jonker
Sisanda Magala
Lundi Mbane
Thandolwethu Mnyaka
Michael Price
Somila Seyibokwe
Jon-Jon Smuts
Yaseen Vallie
Basheer Walters
David White

The team to travel to Pretoria for the Momentum match against the Titans is as follows:

Colin Ingram (Capt)
Christiaan Jonker
Simon Harmer
Jon-Jon Smuts
Andrew Birch
Gihahn Cloete
Sisanda Magala
Lundi Mbane
Basheer Walters
Yaseen Vallie
Clyde Fortuin
Somila Seyibokwe
Jerry Nqolo
Aya Gqamane

Kit sponsors Fain have provided the team with a new look design element incorporating a “Battle Concept” which fits in with the team going out to battle each time they don their playing shirts. This concept also fits in with the region’s Frontier history.

The Warriors will again play in pink shirts for the month of October in support of Breast Cancer Awareness and their fundraising efforts for Reach for Recovery.

Cricket Eastern Cape continues its search for a naming rights sponsor for the team after long time sponsor Chevrolet ended their association with the team last season. “We have met with some potential sponsors but as yet no-one has signed on the dotted line. We are hoping that there might be a local sponsor out there who is willing to back our team. As the only franchise in this region the team deserve to have local business come out and support them in their efforts. We are calling on business to help us make sure we are among the top teams in the country and we can only do this with support and some financial backing” said CEO Jesse Chellan.

AB DE VILLIERS REPEATS AS SA CRICKETER OF THE YEAR

AB DE VILLIERS matched the performance of Makhaya Ntini (2005 and 2006) when he was named South Africa’s Cricketer of the Year for the second successive year when he received the 2015 award at a gala Cricket South Africa (CSA) banquet in Midrand on Wednesday night.

Only eight players have received CSA’s most prestigious award and Jacques Kallis (2004 and 2011) and Hashim Amla (2010 and 2013) are the other players to be awarded twice. The other previous winners are Shaun Pollock (2007), Dale Steyn (2008), Graeme Smith (2009), and Vernon Philander (2012).

De Villiers swept the board of almost all the accolades available to him, winning five awards. He thus emulated the performance of Hashim Amla who won five awards in 2010. De Villiers was also named Castle Lager ODI Cricketer of the Year while his peers and his fans honoured him by voting for him as SA Players’ Player of the Year and SA Fans’ Player of the Year respectively. He also received the KFC So Good Award for scoring the fastest century in the history of ODI Cricket against the West Indies in December 2014.

The other major awards went to Hashim Amla as Test Cricketer of the Year and Morne van Wyk as Ticketpro T20 Cricketer of the Year while Dale Steyn won the RAM Delivery of the Year and Rilee Rossouw was named SA Newcomer of the Year.

Shabnim Ismail was named Momentum Women’s Cricketer of the Year.

“This has been another great year with truly wonderful achievements from our top players,” commented CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat. “AB is just so special and surely he must be the best all-round cricketer in the world. His performances are sheer class and his No. 2 ranking in Test match cricket and No. 1 in ODI cricket only tells a part of his amazing skills.

“He has always been an entertainer and a trendsetter while at the same time he has that unique ability to dig really deep when it matters.

“AB de Villiers has modestly taken limited overs batting to a new level and he has done it with style and panache that is simply beyond the reach of most. He is a true batting genius! He now holds the world records for the fastest 50, 100 and 150 in ODI cricket

“We are proud of the scale of his achievements and, more importantly, the manner in which he does it. He is an exceptionally talented cricketer who always adapts to the needs of the team.

“Our Proteas have again displayed true world-class performances in the past year and I salute not only the Award winners but all of them for a year of great performances. The fact that there were again as many as five worthy candidates for the top award speaks volumes.

“Our domestic cricket remains blessed with great talents and congratulations to all the winners in that category as well.”

“I warmly congratulate all our winners including the likes of our umpires, grounds staff and scorers, without whose contribution the game cannot be played.

The bizhub Highveld Lions and the Nashua Cape Cobras dominated the domestic professional category. The Lions had three winners in Geoffrey Toyana (Pitchvision Coach of the Season), Stephen Cook (Sunfoil Series Player of the Season) and Kagiso Rabada as Domestic Newcomer of the Season. The Cobras’ players honoured were Robin Peterson (Momentum One-Day Cup Player of the Season) and Dane Paterson (Domestic Players’ Player of the season). The RAM SLAM T20 Player of the Season went to Kieron Pollard of the West Indies who represented the Cobras.

Paterson also won the SACA Most Valuable Player award while The Unlimited Titans won the CSA Fair Play Award. Rudolph du Preez, the curator at SuperSport Park, was named CSA Groundsman of the Year.

Johan Cloete was named CSA Umpire of the Year while the CSA Umpires’ Umpire of the Year went to Adrian Holdstock.

The Khaya Majola Lifetime Achievement Award went to Shepherd Ngcaba for his services to the game over nearly half a century. He has been the driving force behind the success of the Good Hope Cricket Club in King Williamstown and has played a major role in the development of facilities in the surrounding rural areas. He has also served on the executive of the Border Cricket Board and is still very active in serving the game he loves.
