Rylands Cricket Club have appointed seamer Riaaz Teladia captain for the 2019-20 Western Province Cricket Association first division A.
Teladia joined Rylands Cricket Club from Rondebosch Cricket Club before the 2017-18 WPCA season.
He has succeeded former Rylands Cricket captain Zaheed Ismail. Seamer Munowar Samsodien has been named vice-captain – and head coach Rushdie Jappie retained.
What Teladia said
“I feel honoured to be named first team captain and would like to thank the club for giving me this opportunity to lead a great team. I am excited for the season ahead and I am looking forward to taking the club forward with promotion to 2020-21 premier league,” Teladia told Club Cricket SA.
Rylands Cricket Club have been promoted to the first division A on the back of a triumphant 2018-19 campaign in the first division B. They gathered 17 wins and one defeat – and finished a full 18 points ahead of second-placed Kuils River Cricket Club.
What Rylands Cricket Club said
“We feel that Riaaz brings the experience needed from a captain. He has put in some really good performances through his career. His levelheadedness combined with his will to succeed will stand him and the club in good stead,” added Rylands Cricket Club chairman Waseem Amien.
