Paul Harris was only bowled nine overs in the entire Castle Test series against New Zealand thanks to the dominant Dale Steyn and the rest of the Proteas seam attack.
“But he can look forward to getting much longer spells when he plays his first SuperSport Series match of the season for the Nashua Titans against the bizhub Highveld Lions at SuperSport from Thursday,” says Michael Owen-Smith Cricket South Africa’s Media Officer.
The Titans have had their pace bowling resources severely tested by the absence of the Morkel brothers, Steyn and Andre Nel and they well turn to spin as their main source of attack as they and the Lions attempt to get off the bottom rungs of the log in this derby match according to Owen-Smith.
“Morne van Wyk has returned from Standard Bank ODI squad duty to play for the log leaders although it may still be some time before their leading bowling all-rounder, Ryan McLaren, returns after a serious illness,” says Owen-Smith.
