Upcoming CLt20 Tournament in India- 16th September 2013

Alviro will shortly be jetting off to India to play in the CLT20 Tournament for the Highveld Lions. Having been finalists last year, they will have high expectations going into this year’s competition.

India is a known for its passionate cricket following, and this is one aspect which Alviro is looking forward to:

“I have always enjoyed playing in India, and I have been touring that country quite a few times with the Proteas, and South Africa A teams. I have played in 2 previous CLT20 tournaments, but both of them were played in South Africa, and I look forward to experiencing the tournament in India. Apart from playing in India, I love the way the people of India support cricket, they are very passionate and intelligent fans.”

“Last year the Bizhub Highveld Lions made the final of the CLT20 tournament, and hopefully we can have similar success, however we are mindful of the challenges that lie ahead. We will be playing in different conditions to what most of our squad are use to, playing a spinning ball and still have to score off of it, and at times very good batting wickets.”

“Preparations are going well, and I'm excited and look forward to the challenge that awaits us.”
