George - The Proteas have gathered in George for their second out-of-season training camp under the direction of conditioning and fielding coach Rob Walter.

“By the time we come out of this camp we want everybody up and running for another busy and testing season,” commented Walter.

“The accent will be very much on conditioning but those players involved in the Champions League T20 will be doing some cricket specific work,” he added.

The Proteas have a full squad at the moment with the exception of AB de Villiers (ankle) and Wayne Parnell (groin) who are recovering from out-of-season operations. Parnell has already started bowling off a short run up and is targeting a return to cricket by the end of September while De Villiers is hoping to be back on the field in mid-October.

The Proteas start their season in the first week of October with two Pro20 International matches against Zimbabwe followed by three ODIs against the same opponents.
