Quinton De Kock stated that he was anticipating the unexpected.
“Pretty much it’s a new tournament, so, I guess looking forward to the unexpected, we’ve had a couple of these tournaments, and there hasn’t been one in a while. Obviously, it’s a quite big event, I think this would be one of the bigger events in the local franchise system. A lot of youngsters who haven’t been part of the big tournament will be involved in this, so it will be good for the new guys and obviously for the guys who’ve been around in serving cricket. This is also new for us, so, this would be amazing another new comp, so I can’t wait,”Quinton stated
“I’ve played with everyone, I know what I’m dealing with, and so, I know the boys are going to have a lot of fun with the children, with the fisherman as well. So I know that’s what I’m dealing with, so it’s pretty easy for me,”he continued
Keshav Maharaj stated that he was eager to interact with some fresh faces.
“I’m looking forward to obviously rubbing shoulders with some new faces, learning more about the game from some T20 specialist, but most importantly making new friendships on and off the field and yeah playing in my hometown, most especially Durban. The tournament will provide an opportunity for South African players to learn from some of the best in the world in T20 cricket. It will also allow young players to show their dexterity and skills on a bigger platform.
“Well, Quinton played with pretty much everyone, I’m looking forward to playing with Kyle Mayers and Jason Holder, having seen what they did in this last Caribbean League, it’s actually quite exciting, bringing some proper flair and some interesting cricketing shots, so looking forward to that,”Keshav said
