Markram happy to be back in Proteas fold as Amla withraws for 4th ODI

Recalled batsman Aiden Markram admits that he was deservedly dropped from the Proteas squad a few weeks ago, but now hopes to make the most of his second chance when South Africa face Sri Lanka in their fourth one-day international in Port Elizabeth today. The 24-year-old lost his play in the ODI squad after a slow start to his career, which has seen him average a below-par 25.43 in 16 matches. It was a poor return for a player who averages well over 40 at domestic level and Markram says he was not hoping to make the most of his opportunity. Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that Markram’s fellow batsman Hashim Amla will miss the remaining matches of the series after being granted compassionate leave due to a family commitment. Reeza Hendricks has been recalled, and will join up with the squad ahead as his replacement. Proteas team manager Dr Mohammed Moosajee shed light on the situation.

Difficult to ignore off-field politics says Sri Lanka captain Karunaratne

Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne concedes that preparations for their Test series against South Africa have not been ideal due to off-field politics with their national board.

Things have been going from bad to worse in Sri Lankan cricket over the last few months, with the selectors sacked, the regular skipper Dinesh Chandimal dropped and plenty of other in-house wrangling taking place. Karunaratne says it has been tough to block out what has been happening.

Proteas Women’s captain Dane van Niekerk believes the change in culture within the team and building for the future helped them tremendously in their three-nil T20 series whitewash against Sri Lanka.

Highveld Lions coach Enoch Nkwe is proud by the fact that he has managed to win two out of two titles in his maiden season at franchise level. But he says that restoring the pride of the Johannesburg-based team was far more important than personal glory. The 35-year-old led his team to the 4-Day Domestic Series title in dramatic fashion last Thursday. It was another gratifying moment for Nkwe so early in his career and followed hot on the heels of guiding his Jozi Stars to the Mzansi Super League title in December. But he remained modest about his achievements.
