Nashua Titans - South African Great Whites

The Nashua Titans is the name used by the combined Easterns and Northerns first class cricket teams in South Africa.The home venues of the Titans are SuperSport Park, Centurion and Willowmoore Park, Benon

Nashua Titans are the reigning twenty20 domestic champions of standard bank pro20 series beating Nashua Dolphins.They are certainly great white sharks in their own territory. Pierre Albert their captain has made his first class debut way back in 1995/96 and as of the end of the 2006/07 season has 179 wickets at 22.81 to his name with best figures of 7/32.If not for Shaun Pollock and Ntini he would have had a South African jersey on.He is experienced and talented which is a potent combination when it comes to captaincy.In his long career he must have ssen every possible scenario and this more than any skill or strategy should come in handy for Pierre in leading his side.

The most lethal weapon in nashua titans arsenal is Dale Steyn.He has been terrorizing batsmen with his raw unrestrained pace bowling, he reminds me of Allan Donald when he burst into the international scene. He is fast, accurate and intelligent. He will definitely be the star to lookout for in this team.Nashua titans bowling looks even stronger when you take Morne morkel-the tall fast bowler and Paul Harris - the left arm spinner into consideration. Paul Harris if you remember performed relatively well in India during the India-South africa Test series last year.

AB dellivers and Martin van Jaarsveld are the two batsmen that you would look out for. Their fielding is one of their strength and adds another dimension their game.Overall Nashua titans are a good competitive side that we can expect to give their best everytime they set foot on a cricketing field.
