Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) has identified four franchise players who have been placed in a high performance fitness and conditioning camp at the organization’s Centre of Excellence in Pretoria.

They will therefore not be available for selection for their franchises this week. 

The players - Lungi Ngidi (Titans), Sisanda Magala (Warriors), Jon-Jon Smuts (Warriors) and Tabraiz Shamsi (Titans) - are in consideration for future international limited overs series and have been enrolled into the training program in the hopes of assisting them in reaching optimum fitness for what promises to be a demanding cricket season. 

The camp is presided over by former Proteas Strength and Conditioning coach - now Sport Scientist - Adrian le Roux.  

He has been involved in professional sport since 1995 and has worked with other cricket teams such as the India national team from 2001 to 2003 and Indian Premier League (IPL) team, the Kolkata Knight Riders from 2007 until present.
