Highveld Lions Players 2012
Highveld Lions – Lack of Experienced players may be the spoiler
Highveld Lions squad for clt20 2012 is placed here. The team is led by Temba Bavuma of indigenous origin, and thus there might be an occult finesse on display. Neil MCKenzie and Chris Morris head the willow-wielders and have some support from the likes of Bruyn and Kock. African sides have historically been magical fielding units, and this team does justice to its name with mesmeric movement at various fielding positions.
It’s the bowling which gives them something to write home about. Dirk Nannes with his Akram-like away swingers, Alviro Petersen with his cool skullduggery are both more than a handful. And who can forget how Sohail Tanveer relayed a poverty-stricken Rajasthan Royals to victory in IPL’s initial edition. Then there is the eternally dependable Ethan O’ Reilly as well.
The side may still rue the absence of a potential giant in their side. All players will have to contribute and let drops create an ocean.
Strengths – The strength of South African side is ever primarily its fielding brilliance. Highveld Lions is a habitual good starter and this should help them here. The immaculate Neil Mackenzie and mystical Gulam Bodi will be crackles in a hotpot. This side also boasts a long batting line-up with quite a few bowlers knowing how to handle a bat.
Weaknesses– The core of this team is indigenous and most haven’t played for the country. That will hurt them. There is a serious lack of long-handles in the side. South African teams have been seasoned chokers; and may show that tendency. Captain Temba may not be inspirational enough. Highveld Lions cricket team South Africa CLT20 2012 is placed below.
