Eastern Province Africa Cup T20 team announced
The Africa T20 Cup Tournament gets underway in early September and the Eastern Province team to participate in the tournament has been announced.
This inaugural tournament will see thirteen provincial teams, including those from Kenya, Zimbabwe and Namibia contesting the cup. There will be four pools with four teams with the winners of each pool going through to the semi-finals. The matches will be played at Sahara Willowmore Park, Senwes Park, Diamond Oval and Mangaung Oval.
EP are in pool C with Griqualand West, Kwa Zulu Natal and Namibia and will play their first match against Griqualand West in Kimberley on 18 September.
Each provincial team may play 4 professional franchise players and must also field two under 21 players.
“The tournament is an added highlight to the season and we have a strong team participating. The players have been hard at work with some of our players playing overseas as well as a number of them being at the EP Academy over the past few months,” EP coach Piet Botha said.
“The balance of the team have been with the Warriors during their pre-season build up. All in all everyone will be well prepared and are looking forward to measure themselves against some top international and franchise players.”
