Cape Town - Former Proteas fast bowler Makhaya Ntini's playing days for the Warriors is likely over after he failed to earn a contract for the the 2013/14 season.

According to Die Burger's website, the 35-year old's name was among the 18 players named in the Eastern Cape franchise's squad on Thursday.

Ntini made his first class debut in the 1995/96 season and went on to play 101 Tests, 173 ODIs and 10 Twenty20 internationals for South Africa.

"The tempation is always there to let players stay on too long," said Warriors CEO Dave Emslie.

"We had to think about what he could still offer us as a player. We had a long chat with Makhaya and he left it up to us to make a decision."

Warriors squad:

Colin Ackermann, Ryan Bailey, Andrew Birch, Athenkosi Dyili, Aqa Gqamane, Simon Harmer, Davy Jacobs, Christiaan Jonker, Vuyisa Makhaphela, Solomzi Nqweni, Michael Price, Ashwell Prince, Gurshwin Rabie, Jon-Jon Smuts, Kelly Smuts, Rusty Theron, Craig Thyssen, Basheer Walters.

Note: Proteas players Colin Ingram and Wayne Parnell will also be available for the Warriors.
