Dolphins prepped for Momentum One Day Cup defence
Durban - An unprecedented Momentum One Day Cup kicks off this weekend with
Pool A fixtures in the bio-secure bubble in Potchefstroom as the
Hollywoodbets Dolphins prepare for their group fixtures against the
Momentum Multiply Titans and the VKB Knights.
After winning the competition last season the Dolphins are diligently
preparing for their title defence in a completely different environment
than they are used to.
Hollywoodbets Dolphins coach Imraan Khan says he is excited for the
upcoming campaign given the results that his side achieved last season.
"It's been an interesting experience in the bio-bubble here but the boys
are ready to go and are looking forward to playing some cricket," Khan
"As a team we enjoy the white ball formats so the guys are very excited
and motivated to play some good cricket.
"From a preparation perspective things are slightly different given all
our games are going to be on the Highveld as opposed to previous years
where we would play all around the country.
"That's probably the biggest difference but still the boys are excited to
get back out on the park and play some cricket," he added.
The Dolphins have taken an extended squad into the bio-secure bubble and
they welcome back Proteas star David Miller into the mix along with young
schoolboy all-rounder Andile Simelane amongst a few others.
Experienced all-rounder Rob Frylinck comes back into the squad after not
being part of the side during the 4-Day Domestic Series while top order
batsman Michael Erlank receives a call-up to the limited overs side.
The Dolphins will be without Keshav Maharaj, Keagan Petersen and Sarel
Erwee who were recently involved with the national side for the test
series against Sri Lanka.
"The squad is pretty much our contracted group of players with a few
surprises in there.
"There is a freshness to the squad and we get David Miller back, I don't
know when the last time he played for the Dolphins was, and there some
other new names so we are looking forward to seeing how they fit into our
culture and seeing them put in good performances for the team."
Having the likes of Miller and Andile Phehlukwayo in the squad will be a
big boost for the younger players. With over 130 ODI's to his name Miller
is a major asset to any team he plays in.
"Dave is a player with massive pedigree and we are expecting a lot from
him, as you do from all your international players.
"He's settled in really nicely into the environment and he's been himself
which is great and we're excited to see what he can do for us on the
park," Khan added.
In the absence of Maharaj experienced all-rounder Prenelan Subrayen will
captain the side for the competition.
The Dolphins begin their One Day Cup defence with a clash with the Titans
