first_imgCricket South Africa (CSA) on Sunday named Titans batsman Aiden Markram and the Warriors duo of fast bowler Anrich Nortje and wicketkeeper-batsman Sine Qeshile as new caps in the Proteas’ squad for the three-match T20 series against Sri Lanka which starts next week.Markram and Nortje are in the squad for all three matches while the 20-year-old Qeshile has been selected for the second and third matches only.“The first match forms part of our vision 2019 to continue exploring our options for the World Cup,” said CSA’s national selection convener Linda Zondi, “and the squad for that match consists largely of the squads that have been doing duty in the Momentum ODI Series against Pakistan and Sri Lanka. We would have liked to include Hashim Amla but unfortunately he remains unavailable because of his family situation.“We have used our T20 International matches in the past as the first port of call to widen the pool of talent. This has resulted in Rassie van der Dussen, Gihahn Cloete, Janneman Malan and Lutho Sipamla being brought through the pipeline with considerable success during the course of the current season.“Sine Qeshile has had an outstanding rookie season of franchise cricket and is certainly one of the form batsmen in franchise cricket at the moment. He looks a really exciting prospect.“JP Duminy will take over the captaincy for the last two matches while we give a short break to Faf du Plessis, Quinton de Kock, Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi who are involved across all three formats for the Proteas,” said Zondi.For more news your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.last_img read more

Powered by Firework Matthijs De Ligt is hot property as we speak. At the age of 19, he is a tall figure in the centre of Ajax’s incredible defence. Not to forget, he’s the captain of the club’s first team. Yes you read that right – the first team. No wonder Barcelona are keen to bag the services of the Dutchman after already securing the transfer of Frenkie De Jong, who’s another talented Ajax midfielder.Advertisement De Ligt has suitors from all across Europe. Liverpool have recently involved themselves in the transfer saga but the latest to court De Ligt are none other than the Biaconeri. Juventus are going full throttle to become an European superpower. With the talismanic services of Ronaldo upfront, a promising defender in the form of De Ligt would certainly take them to the pinnacle of European football.Advertisement Speaking to Tuttosport, De Ligt said: “[A move to Juventus] could happen, but there are others who are also interested.“We’ll see at the right time. At the moment I’m fully focused on Ajax and my agent [Mino] Raiola is taking care of the rest. Also, De Jong hasn’t spoken to me about a move to Barcelona.Advertisement “I really admire [Giorgio] Chiellini, he’s a very strong centre-back and one of the best ever. I also appreciate [Leonardo] Bonucci. They are two of the best centre-backs in Europe and two examples to follow for a young player like me.”This statement does give the transfer saga an entire new dimension. However, in today’s world of 200M deadline day transfers, anything could transpire from here on. Advertisementlast_img read more
