Ramela’s first challenge is the team’s first Cricket South Africa (CSA) Three-Day Provincial fixture against Griqualand West in Kimberly on Thursday, 03 October 2013 that will be followed by a CSA One-Day Provincial match on Sunday against the same opposition.
“It’s an honour and privilege to be part of this great province that has a lot of history. The aim this season is to rid the fear of losing and focus our attention solely on winning. We’re playing against good opposition and we need to ensure that we step up to the plate and also compete for higher honours” said a delighted Ramela.
The squad to Kimberly:
Matthew Kleinveldt, Sharn Gomes, Peter Malan, Omphile Ramela (captain), Sybrandt Engelbrecht, Shaheen Khan, Bradley Barnes (w/k), Aviwe Mgijima, Siyabulela Simetu, Travis Muller, Dane Paterson, GF Linde, Francois Plaatjies and Brandon Young.
