“South Africa has unfinished business, as the previous test series between the Proteas and England finished in a stalemate, and we hope that the fans will support South Africa at Newlands,” said Nabeal Dien, chief executive officer of the Western Province Cricket Association (WPCA).
“The T20-campaign against Australia will be the last action for South Africa before the squad departs for the ICC Twenty20 World Cup later in March.
“The match at Newlands offers the fans an opportunity to witness the skill and mastery of our team and to give them an appropriate send-off before they depart for the global showpiece.”
“The Newlands fans have made this world-class venue a domestic fortress for the Cape Cobras and an international stronghold for South Africa. We want to thank the cricket fraternity for the enthusiastic ticket-support of the past, and trust this will continue in the 2015/2016 season.”
The Cape Cobras team are in full swing with their preparations for the upcoming season. The Cape Cobras continued their successful pursuit of silverware by winning the RAM Slam T20 Challenge in the 2014/2015 season. They also hosted the final of the Momentum One Day Cup at Newlands in February 2015.
The Cape Cobras are looking forward to another FANgTastic season ahead with our Champion FANgS!
The domestic season kicks off in October with the Momentum One Day Cup and the Cobras and The Unlimited Titans, the finalists in the 2014/2015 edition of the domestic 50-over showpiece, will be at loggerheads on 16th October 2015 at Newlands.
The first match in the RAM Slam T20 Challenge will be in November. The defending champions, the Cobras, will clash with the Warriors at Newlands on 1st November.
