'I know Nortje is going to come in hot & he is going to bring his aggression': David Miller

Cape Town, Nov 25 (UNI) The newly formed Paarl Royals is a South African T20 franchise cricket team which will compete in the inaugural season of the SA20 tournament.
The team is based in Paarl, South Africa and is owned by IPL owners Royals Sports Group, who own the Rajasthan Royals. The team’s home ground is the Boland Park Cricket Ground and is captained by David Miller and is coached by JP Duminy. Paarl Royals will open the inaugural session of the SA20 in Cape Town, when they face MI Cape Town on January 10, 2023.

Paarl Royals has a star studded line-up, with some of the most prolific cricketers in world cricket such as Jos Butler, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi, Jason Roy and Eoin Morgan being a part of the squad. During the auctions, Paarl Royals pre-bought David Miller, Jos Buttler, Obed Mcoy and Corbin Bosch and spent R4.3 Million on Tabraiz Shamsi, the most expensive player in the squad.

Speaking exclusively in an interview with SA20, captain of the Paarl Royals – David Miller spoke on how excited he is to work with a new squad with a healthy combination of experienced senior players and young talent, he said “Yeah, I’m very excited. We’ve got a great squad and looking forward to linking up with all the guys early Jan. We’ve got some good experienced players, World Cup winner Captain Jos Buttler as well, so that’s going to be really cool and then Eoin Morgan as well with all the experience in the World Cup in his bank, so yeah good great experienced senior players and a lot of young players are looking forward to it.”

Miller further spoke on who he is looking forward to face the most and how he is going to handle
the opposition’s bowlers, he said “I don’t really have anything against anyone, probably going to be Anrich Nortje, fastest bowler on the circuit at the moment. So, I know he’s going to come in hot and he’s going to bring his aggression, but I’m looking forward to taking him down.”

Miller further said “There are so many good bowlers but I would probably say Sam Curran has definitely had little bit of an upper hand on me over the last couple years. He’s just got Man of the Series and Man of the Match in the World Cup and he’s in top form. So, I’m looking forward to
facing him but getting on top of him as well.”

The full squad of the Paarl Royals :1) David Miller, 2) Jos Buttler, 3) Obed McCoy, 4) Corbin Bosch
5) Lungi Ngidi, 6) Tabraiz Shamsi, 7) Jason Roy, 8) Dane Vilas, 9) Bjorn Fortuin, 10) Mitchell van, Buuren, 11) Wihan Lubbe, 12) Ferisco Adams, 13) Imraan Manack, 14) Evan Jones, 15) Ramon Simmonds, 16) Eoin Morgan and 17) Cody Yusuf.
