By on September 4, 2019

CAPE TOWN – Nine World Sports Betting Cape Cobras were snapped up in the marquee event of the Mzansi Super League season two, the MSL 2.0 draft which was held in Soweto on Tuesday.


There were 184 foreign players, including Kolpak players, in the draft which presented a massive increase on the 71 who applied in 2018.


Five of the World Sports Betting Cape Cobras players were picked by the Cape Town Blitz – Janneman Malan, David Bedingham, Vernon Philander, George Linde and Aviwe Mgijima.


Jozi Stars selected the World Sports Betting Cape Cobras fast bowler Lizaad Williams as they look to defend the title they won last season.


Nandre Burger, a new acquisition for the World Sports Betting Cape Cobras, was picked by the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants. Cobras left-arm seamer Akhona Mnyaka will be joining Burger at the Giants.

Boland and Cobras all-rounder Ferisco Adams was selected to represent the Paarl Rocks in the showpiece event starting in November.


World Sports Betting Cape Cobras CEO Nabeal Dien congratulated the players who were selected. “We are very proud to have so many Cobras players represented in the second season of MSL and we wish them the best of luck at their respective teams.”


JP Duminy was also snapped up by the Paarl Rocks. He is no longer part of the World Sports Betting Cape Cobras squad, having retired from the domestic game at the end of last season, yet he has a strong emotional bond with the World Sports Betting Cape Cobras.


Thirteen players were chosen on Tuesday and the 14th position will be a wild card to be selected at the conclusion of the CSA Provincial T20 competition. This will give all squads a total of 16 players.
