The South African women’s cricket team is doing its best to focus on next month’s ICC World Cup qualifiers, despite a surprise decision by all-rounder and national vice-captain Johmari Logtenberg to quit cricket.
SAPA is reporting that prolific batswoman Logtenberg, who was chosen as gsport’s November 2006 gSTAR, has made the difficult decision to retire from cricket, to pursue a career in golf.
Logtenberg (18), who was also KwaZulu Natal women’s captain, was a solid performer for the national women’s team, and her experience will be sorely missed.
SA Captain Cri-Zelda Brits told SAPA: "We decided as a team that we would focus on what’s important, and that’s the World Cup. We are sorry about Johmari, but we can’t look back."
Boland’s Claire Terblanche will assume the vice captaincy for the ICC World Cup qualifiers which take place from 18-24 February in Stellenbosch.
