South Africa’s T20 superstar AB de Villiers has sent out a gevaarlike warning to Cape Mzansi Super League teams ahead of this weekend’s matches.
The Spartans superstar wants to play cricket and he wants to win the Mzansi Super League.
Frustrated after three of their matches have rained out, Spartans have won the other two to remain the only unbeaten side in the competition.
Currently in third place on the log and facing Paarl Rocks on Friday, before facing Blitz at Newlands on Sunday, De Villiers wants to wrap up qualification for the playoffs.

He says: “The rained-out games certainly didn’t help us.
“When we hopefully lift the trophy in a few weeks’ time, we’ll maybe look back and say they did help us. But certainly when you work so hard to prepare, you just want to get out there and win games of cricket.
“Then the rain comes and that’s really frustrating... we’re a group of competitive guys, we just want to play cricket and win games.”
Out to stop him on Friday is Rocks allrounder Ferisco Adams, who helped his team to victory over the Giants on Wednesday with bowling figures of 2/27 and an unbeaten knock of 23.
He says: “Hopefully we can go to Pretoria now and get another win there. We’re improving all the time...”
