"It's a very exciting period for me taking over from Salieg (Nackerdien) and we have set the standards very high, we obviously want to win all formats of the game at the end of the season seeing the type of combination that we have in our side. We've got very talented players in the Western Cape so we're setting the bar very high and we're looking to try and achieve that goal by winning all the trophies." Faiek Davids said.
The squad will be a dynamic one and will change after every three to four matches depending on performances both at first class and at club levels.
WPCA General Manager Nabeal Dien was also very happy with the commitment and dedication shown by all the squad members through the winter period and is hoping that their hard work will pay dividends when they take the field this season. He said:
"The squad had very useful pre-season period. They played a state side from India in a 4-Day match at UCT as well as a 1-Day match against Boland that allowed the players time in the middle and we were indeed fortunate to get in these matches with the consistent and continuing inclement weather in Cape Town. The young Travis Muller who played outstanding in these pre-season matches is rewarded with a place in both opening 3-Day and 1-Day matches against Border. Let us look forward to a great season and may we produce another few stars for the Cobras and hopefully our national team the Proteas."
Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras coach, Paul Adams has also requested the selection of Justin Kemp, Monde Zondeki, Alistair Gray and Qaasim Adams for the fixture against Border in order for them to get more time in the middle.
