NEIL MANTHORP: It’s happening in SA cricket, but you must know where not to look

Competition for places is serious without being too intense and the quality of the cricket has been pleasingly and unexpectedly high. SA competed in the Veterans World Cup for the first time two years ago and they were caught off guard. To say the players and management underestimated the seriousness with which other teams treated the tournament would be kind.
