The Momentum Multiply Titans are looking forward to kickstarting their 2022/23 season with a strong push for the CSA T20 Challenge. The Sky Blues have enjoyed a productive pre-season campaign, including several team-building sessions, and they are ready to hit the ground running.
“Every new season is an opportunity to do great things as a team, and we are very excited for this campaign,” coach Mandla Mashimbyi explained.
The T20 Challenge is an early chance for silverware, and there is a lot of excitement in the Titans ranks, especially after a dramatic SA20 auction saw many of the Sky Blues scooped up by franchises.
“It is a great time to be a professional cricketer in this country. Young guns like Donovan Ferreira and Dewald Brevis have seen their lives changed, and that kind of excitement bodes well for the entire squad. Sometimes we all need reminding of just how this game can transform lives,” Mashimbyi added.
In the spirit of new beginnings, the Titans have also made Sibonelo Makhanya the club captain for the season. This comes after he led the team with aplomb in the 50-over competition last season.
“Sibz is a wonderful team man, and someone who has made the most of his opportunities since moving to SuperSport Park. It is very encouraging to see him take to leadership so well, and also to see the support he has enjoyed from the rest of the squad,” Mashimbyi concluded.
Momentum Multiply Titans Squad for CSA T20 Challenge: Sibonelo Makhanya (capt), Theunis de Bruyn, Neil Brand, Aaron Phangiso, Dean Elgar, Corbin Bosch, Aya Gqamane, Dayyaan Galiem, Donovan Ferreira, Junior Dala, Jiveshen Pillay, Simon Harmer, Dewald Brevis, Matthew Boast, Musa Twala.
