Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) will be holding a specialist spin bowling camp next week at the Powerade Centre of Excellence in Pretoria.

“This annual camp has particular significance this year,” commented Vincent Barnes, CSA High Performance Manager. “If one looks at our international fixture list for the second half of the year, we have the Proteas playing away Test series in both Bangladesh and India while South Africa A will be playing both four-day unofficial Tests and a triangular one-day series in India.

“Spin bowling obviously plays an important part on the sub-continent so it is important that we prepare players properly, particularly those who have little or no experience of playing in that part of the world.

“The camp will also be attended by some of our less experienced batsmen who will be representing these various squads. Some of our Proteas batsmen have also asked to attend in preparation for the tour of Bangladesh.

“Our Under-19 squad struggled during their recent tour to Bangladesh where they will be defending their ICC World title next year so we are also involving players at this level.”

Invited participants:

Spin bowlers: Aaron Phangiso (Highveld Lions), Ruben Klaasen (Northerns), Bjorn Fortuin (Gauteng), Tshepo Ntuli (Free State), Dane Piedt (Cape Cobras), George Linde (Cape Cobras), Shaun von Berg (Titans), Sean Whitehead (Free State/SA Under-19), Ndudoza Mfoza (KZN Coastal/SA Under-19), Tshepiso Ndwandwa (CSA Fort Hare Academy), Lizo Makhoso (EP Academy)
