Durban – After a nail in the opening game at the Mzansi Super League, Durban Heat will welcome David Miller, Heinrich Klaassen and Brandon Mavut to the team for a fight with Tshwane Spartans in Kingsmead on Wednesday afternoon.
The Heat went to Cape Town, Blitz in his opening competition, however both coach Grant Morgan and Captain Albie Morkel were not disappointed by showing them and knowing he was very positive.
Like the protest stars Miller and Klaasen, who joined the mix and foot rotating Mavut of Zimbabwe, Morgan has made a number of difficult choices when he sets up his most powerful eleven for the clash.
Khaya Zondo and Keshav Maharaj played well on the side in their opening tournament tournament, so Heat's credibility will be more than encouraging by their international stars, backed by a strong team.
"We are excited to get such a kind of international quality into this team and that it can be good for your team," said coach Grant Morgan.
"We have made a certain amount of time to choose and ensure that we develop all possible options to get the best team together.
"Everyone is really excited to get there and play another game," said Morgan positive.
"I'm sure it's the same for all teams, but we have a very real and positive relationship among the teams," Morgan added.
"I really praise the boys for helping each other, and after the meeting on Sundays, fans have been involved. We have a lot of really good crickets, but more important are really good human beings."
The Spartans won one game and lost one game when starting two competitions. Like AB de Villiers in line, they have one of the best in the world and Captain Morkel knows the star better than most.
"I've played a lot of cricket with him, and we have some plans, but he'll have a lot of pressure on his shoulders," Morkel said.
"I'm not saying the rest of the team is not dangerous and they have a few good players, but it's probably a great one."
