With the Mzansi Super League just around the corner, former Proteas star fast bowler Dale Steyn says he cannot wait to pull on his Cape Town Blitz jersey.

Steyn will once again be part of the Blitz franchise for the MSL 2.0 and is hoping to help them to another good tournament.

Last year the Blitz were losing finalists, and Steyn says he would love to help them reach another final this time around.

The 36-year-old is looking forward to the challenge of playing against some of the world’s best T20 cricketers. Steyn has no concerns over his own fitness, and says while it has been a while since he played, he is raring to go.

Steyn does not hold back his excitement for this competition and says he really enjoys the competition. He says the MSL is a great opportunity for aspiring cricketers to make a mark, and also a chance for some of the more experienced players to show why they are international stars.

The Mzansi Super League 2.0 gets underway at the Wanderers on Friday the 8th of November, when last year’s winners the Jozi Stars host runners-up the Blitz. – Report by Rob Delport
