Congratulations on this excellent venture… what a great idea! I love everything about cricket.

I know I don’t look like I always eat salad all the time but I enjoy a good steak and salad.

It’s always as if you can never quite get there, so you always strive to be better in every game and every season. Dane van Niekerk (born 14 May 1993) is a South African cricketer born in Pretoria and educated at Centurion High School. It will enhance any encyclopedic page you visit with the magic of the WIKI 2 technology. You are always competing against yourself.

“Even getting into the South African side it took two or three years to believe in my skills and back myself as a bowling all-rounder at the time. COVID-19 makes us a bit unsure about what is going on. We didn’t win a World Cup. Even if it meant their preparations for WBBL|06 would take place in the confines of an Adelaide hotel room.

“It’s fair to say there hasn’t been the bounce from the World Cup two years ago,” she admits. I was just hoping to land it to be honest because I bowled so many full tosses (in practice) yesterday. It’s not that we don’t want to win, I’m just saying it’s a mindset more than anything else. Yet at the same time remarkably self-deprecating. It’s just sad that we could not continue with that unfortunately with the COVID-19 pandemic that’s been sprang onto everyone quite quickly.

"A few days ago I was watching the Australian and New Zealand girls play, and I (was thinking) what high quality the Big Bash is," Kapp said. We just got to the semi-final.

And after an injury-plagued 2019 and early 2020, which included everything from foot problems to a cut hand after attempting to slice an avocado, van Niekerk has declared herself fit and ready after the longer-than-expected break from the game. To celebrate the day of her birth we chatted to her to get to know a little bit more about her and what she has been doing in her free time during lockdown. For fast bowler Kapp, bowling a ball into a wall of pillows pushed against the hotel room door has been another way of keeping herself on track. But they won't have access to any training facilities at all until they're released from quarantine on Monday and fly to Sydney, where the entire 59-match tournament will be played. The stark warning comes from no less a figure than Proteas skipper Dane Van Niekerk as she reflects on her country’s near-miss at the World Cup two years ago and its seeming failure to progress since. Kapp has also returned to full fitness after a mystery illness prevented her taking the field for their T20 World Cup semi-final against Australia. I guess I’m just very biased when it comes to leg-spinners.”.

She was the first South African female cricketer to be inducted into the men's side at the Eastern Province cricket academy. “Sometimes we take it too seriously and we think it is the end of the world if we get out for nought, but when you listen to these people that have been around and the way they may be bounce back from a disappointing innings or two or three even, it just puts things into perspective.”. Rajasthan Royals beat Mumbai Indians by 8 wickets, Chennai Super Kings beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 8 wickets, Kings XI Punjab beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 12 runs, Kolkata Knight Riders beat Delhi Capitals by 59 runs.
