Players to Watch

With the likes of David Miller, Heinrich Klassen and Hashim Amla, Durban Heat looks solid at the top of the order. Albie Morkel who has played for almost a decade for the national side and has also been part of successful T20 franchises all over the world. He along with Vernon Philander will bring the experience to the team. In the bowlers Kyle Abbott and Marchant de Lange are both well established players. Morne Van Wyk and Sarel Erwee bring the local talent to the team.

The Trump Card

In a predominantly proteas team where there is loads of experience and talent, the Trump card for the team and the most dangerous player is going to be none other than the young Afghan, Rashid Khan. At 20, Rashid has already made a huge impact on World cricket. He is currently ranked #1 among bowlers in T20 cricket. With vicious Googlies and leg spins , especially combined with unusual pace for a spinner, Rashid is one of the toughest players to face in the world at present. Rashid is also well known for his brief firework-show with his bat. He has got the strength and the technique to send the ball all the way to the stands. Rashid Khan is all set to trouble the opponents both with the bat and the ball.
