Pretoria – Three players have been released from the Castle Test squad to return to their franchises for the latest round of SuperSport Series matches starting on Thursday. The players are Johan Botha and Wayne Parnell of the Chevrolet Warriors and JP Duminy of the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras.

Meanwhile captain Graeme Smith had his first net session on Monday since being injured during the Test series against Pakistan and declared himself satisfied with his fitness ahead of the first Castle Test against India, starting at SuperSport Park on Thursday.

“I was very pleased with the way it went,” he commented. “I am following the same processes I have always followed when coming back from injury. I will step up my batting schedule over the next two days.”

Smith batted mainly against the spinners but will have a full session against the quick men at SuperSport Park on Tuesday.

SuperSport Series fixtures this weekend: Paarl: Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras vs. Nashua Dolphins; Buffalo Park: Chevrolet Warriors vs. Chevrolet Knights; Senwes Park: bizhub Highveld Lions vs. Nashua Titans
