The bizhub Highveld Lions have pleasure in announcing the contracted squad for 2013/14.

“The team has had a phenomenal season and we were happy to keep the bigger pool of players consistent, as this allows for continuity. The squad shows the inclusion of some younger players that have been on the fringe of the franchise for the past couple of years and we welcome them into the side. I believe that we have the squad to build on the successes of the 2012/13 season and look forward to see the progress of these individuals as a unit,” said Cassim Docrat, Chief Executive Officer.

Head Coach, Geoffrey Toyana, is excited about the potential this group of players have. “I have personal insight into the cricket abilities of these players and can tell you now that this squad has what it takes to have another magical season. I am also happy to welcome into the side Lopsy (Lowabo Tsotsobe) who has opted to play for the bizhub Highveld Lions this year. He has a tremendous amount of ability and I believe that he will bring experience and guidance to some of the younger players in our squad,” Toyana said.

The side reconvenes at the end of the month to start their off-season programme. “There is a lot of hard work ahead of us and we will have to put in the work if we want to impress on both the international and domestic stage. We have the players to achieve this, the ball is now in our court,” Toyana added.
