Yesterday, at SuperSport Park in Centurion, the Tshwane Spartans announced their participation in the T20. None other than AB de Villiers will be captaining the side. He seems excited to come out of retirement to do this, personally after witnessing his excitement I imagine how hard it must be to balance family life and sporting passion but he seems to be well rested and ready to do the job.
I was asked yesterday whether AB is really a nice person. Yes, he is – he is real, honest and funny. I enjoyed my quick two-minutes with him and my nephew Jethro thinks he is a real life hero – he is!
There was lots of talk about how great the stadium is for families to enjoy the T20 with grass embankments, a swimming pool and of course a luscious green pitch for the cricket. Yes, Supersport Park is looking ready for an exciting tournament for those cricket-lovers who are looking for the pump and jam in what is traditionally a slow game.
I’m not much of a cricket fan, except for T20 and I’m looking forward to this one.
