Cape Town Blitz veterans Dale Steyn and Farhaan Behardien will return “home” to Centurion Park on Saturday uitgehonger for some action.
With the top-of-the-table Mzansi Super League match against the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants having rained out on Tuesday night, Blitz still tops the log comfortably heading into Saturday’s match against the Tshwane Spartans.
For pace ace Steyn and captain Behardien, who both ply their trade at the Titans, the field at Centurion will be a second home.
Both 35, they are the oldest in the Blitz squad and will look to show the jongmanne in the squad how it’s done on their turf.
Veteran Steyn has been one of the standout stars in the competition to date, taking six wickets at an average of 18.33.
This despite a swak start in his tournament opener against Durban Heat where he was smacked for 45 runs without taking a wicket in his four overs.
But while the Phalaborwa Express has since been ruthless, Behardien is due to a big knock.
The former Proteas "finishing" batsman has only cracked one six in the tournament to date and averages 17 in his three innings.
Behardien believes not having played the match against the Giants will help his team be fresh.
He says: “We have been on a bit of a tight schedule, so the guys can rest up and be fresh for [the Spartans]."
