“We have a wonderful structure in place,” said Madibaz head coach Baakier Abrahams.
The club’s performances of late, which include a seventh straight premier league title for the first eleven this season, with the second team finishing runners-up in the same competition, bears testimony to this.
The league title has once again secured the team a place at the national club champs in Pretoria later this month and they will be hoping to extend their local success to the national realm after being beaten in the final the last two years.
He said that during the pre-season the club had focused on their processes and the brand of cricket they wanted to play.
“It was encouraging to see the players buy into those philosophies and in the process watch them grow and achieve some amazing things.”
Abrahams said the club was fortunate to have a crop of up-and-coming youngsters looking to make their mark as well as experienced players leading from the front.
The latter include Eddie Moore and Brad Dolley, who have established themselves as part of the Eastern province Senior Provincial team, and David White, who has represented the SA A team and will be attending the CSA National Academy in June.
Abrahams said young players on the march were Matthew Christensen, Ngazibini Sigwili and team captain Lloyd Brown.
