Pretoria Mavericks Team Squad Players List
The Pretoria squad for Global T20 League can be found here. Pretoria, one of the three capital cities of South Africa, will be represented in the upcoming T20 Global League, by its city based franchise.
As the format of the T20 Global League dictated, each team was assigned a Protean marquee player, based on the ties the players have with the cities. In this regard, one can say that the Pretoria franchise has been quite lucky, as they have got AB de Villiers as their marquee player.
Undoubtedly, he is one of the most lethal batsman in the T20 format right now and on his day, he can single-handedly take his team to a win. In addition to this, the SuperSport Park can be expected to be completely packed whenever Mr. 360 is playing for Pretoria.
In the first round of the Global T20 Draft Draft, Pretoria selected the West Indian all-rounder Dwayne Bravo to their line-up before bringing in South Africa speedster Morne Morkel to lead their attack. It will be interesting to see what do the fans say about Farhaan Behardien’s selection to the squad but they also have Dane Vilas, Keshav Maharaj and Johan Botha to look up to during the competition.
Botha, who is now an Australian local, will return back to his roots having played all his international cricket in South Africa.
Cricket, which is a popular sport in the city, will now be taken to the next level with the introduction of this exciting new league in South Africa. The cricket fans in Pretoria are certainly excited with the prospect of the T20 Global League, which is set to be played in the final quarter of the year.
Since Pretoria hasn’t got an international cricket ground, its home matches for the league will be played in the SuperSport Park in nearby located Centurion. This stadium has hosted an array of thrilling tournaments, such as 2009 IPL and ICC Champions Trophy to name a few. It will now host its very first domestic cricket league, featuring a spectacular mix of local and international talent.
What is also known is that Russell Domingo will join de Villiers as the coach of the Mavericks, while Neil McKenzie will be his assistant coach. Lance Klusener, the former all-rounder, will come in as the bowling coach.
Certainly, it will be exciting to see the roster that the Pretoria franchise will build. Pretoria Mavericks squad team players list 2017 is placed below.
