Kirsten: No excuses for SA

2011-09-03 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Proteas coach Gary Kirsten said they won’t be able to blame a lack of preparation as reason should they lose to Australia this summer.

The Proteas will only have a week together before their first T20 game against Australia on October 13 at Newlands.

Thirteen of South Africa’s players that attended a practice camp in Kleinmond this week will be involved in the lucrative Champions League Twenty20 for their respective franchise teams.

The Champions League only finishes on October 9.

The players not involved in the Champions League will go back to their local franchises, preparing for the domestic season.

“It would have been nice to spend more time together with the players, but that is the cricket world that we are living in,

“It’s slightly disruptive, but in today’s professional environment you have to manage it correctly. It can definitely not be used as an excuse,” Kirsten said.
