Tando Ntini, son of the legendary South African bowler Mahai Ntini, has decided to change the provincial team from Cape Town to Pretoria. Nitin made his debut last season in Cape Cobras, where he represented the Western Province Cricket Association.
The fast bowler came fifth in a one-day league. Meanwhile, the Cobras finished with a wooden spoon in a six-man league in which Ntini scored fourteen points in nine games. The 19-year-old also played in 2019 in the Mzansiysk Super League (MSL) in the Faf du Plessis franchise led by Paarl Rox.
But he had to keep the couch warm all season long. Titanov’s head coach Mandla Mashimbay confirmed the course of events and welcomed Tando Ntini into the field. We are happy to see Thando playing the Sky Blues, Mashimbaya was quoted by sport.24.co.za.
CSA will cancel all cricket tournaments for a period of 60 days
Due to the growing popularity of Covid-19 Coronavirus Cricket, Cricket South Africa (CSA) has now postponed competitions such as First Class Cricket, Liszt A Cricket (Momentum Cup) and all semi-professional and provincial cricket competitions as well as all junior and amateur cricket competitions by sixty days.
At the CSA, we take this statement from the president and the cabinet very seriously, and we will certainly use our influence to minimize the impact of the virus on our space. We therefore call on all our members and affiliated organizations to refrain from participating in cricket-related meetings and other cross-cutting events involving large numbers of people and/or up to 100 people at this time of caution and absolute compliance, according to Dr. Jacques Faul, Acting Executive Director of Cricket South Africa, in a statement.
This announcement is part of the growing threat of a coronavirus pandemic that has paralysed the world. Most sports tournaments in the world, including the Premier League, La Liga and NBA, have been postponed because the world is preparing for a long period of self-isolation.
The Indian tour to South Africa was also cancelled last week after the CSA BCCI had asked for the tyres to be recalled due to the worsening situation.
