The Imperial Highveld Lions launched their 2020/21 season with a gaggle of new players revealed, reaffirmation from their sponsors and new initiatives to help build awareness around socio-economic problems that blight the country.

It’s true – it has been a tough few months for the game and Cricket South Africa (CSA), who have no doubt tarnished the image of the whole. The continued battle for the soul, and the money, of cricket, seems to have levelled out in recent days, the curve of maladministration now flattening out, although the skirmishes will still continue into the foreseeable future.

It is something none of the players can control, but ultimately it will be their job to show that despite the woes of CSA, cricket is nevertheless healthy.And Bavuma was not the only player who believed that getting onto the field, scoring a few runs and taking some wickets would go a long way to start the healing process between the game and its sundered supporter-base. It was a sentiment shared by new singing, and Protea, Lutho Sipamla as well.

“Primarily, what is needed from us, the players, is to put the performances on the field. That’s the way I think we can go about (building confidence with the fans).“We can’t really say much publicly, it is not our place … The only way we can build confidence is having prepared the way we have prepared now. We’ve put in the work, we’ve worked quite hard in the past 16 weeks and I feel the guys are ready.

"So, we need to go out there, take our preparation, and change that into performances that win games for the Lions,” the quickie said.Sipamla’s signature on the dotted line is also joined by three new players at the team in Wesley Marshall, Sisanda Magala and Tladi Bokako.
