Nashua (Pty) Limited will take over the principal team sponsorship of the leading force in South African domestic cricket, the Cape Cobras, for the 2014/2015-season.
The Cape Cobras, a domestic powerhouse who have won seven titles in the past four seasons, romped to the second successive Sunfoil Series title in 2013/2014-season, shared the Momentum One Day Cup title in a repeat of their success of 2012/2013 and also qualified for the Champions League Twenty20 event to be held this month.
Commenting on the announcement, André Odendaal, CEO of Western Cape Cricket (Pty) Ltd, said: “I am thrilled that Nashua (Pty) Limited will be on board. They are leading providers of both managed document services and office automation printing solutions in Southern Africa. As a force in South African cricket and a nursery for South African stars, we are glad to associate ourselves with a prominent industry leader. It is a perfect fit.
“We trust that this association will result in the Cape Cobras maintaining their recent momentum and pursuing even more silverware.”
The Cape Cobras will be participating in their 3rd Champions League Twenty20 in India and will leave for this prestigious event on the 13th September.
The Cape Cobras boast six players who are nationally contracted, while two players debuted for South Africa sin recent months.
Beuran Hendricks represented the Proteas at the T20 World Cup in Bangladesh, while Dane Piedt played in his first test for South Africa against Zimbabwe in Harare in July and captured eight for 152 on debut as off-spinner.
The 2014/2015 Cape Cobras squad for the season is:
CSA – Contracted Cobras Players
