The Cobras fast bowling resources will be somewhat depleted, but coach Paul Adams, fresh from coaching the SA ‘A’ team in Australia, remains quietly optimistic that the Cobras will be competitive. Beuran Hendricks was not considered for selection because of a back injury. Dale Steyn is not available because of the need to keep him fit for national commitments. New Cobras signing and national player, Mathokosizi Shezi, was ineligible because he did not play for the Cobras in the Ram Slam last season. Jacques Kallis will be playing for his IPL team Kolkota Knight Riders instead of the Cobras. The only new cap is fast bowler Zakhele Qwabe, who played for Boland as a semi-pro last season, while the veteran Charl Langeveldt has been recalled from retirement to add depth to the bowling as well.
The Cobras, who have now won seven of the last 12 South African domestic trophies, will be finalising their pre-tournament preparations in a training camp in Potchefstroom starting this week.
