The Jozi Stars have effectively apologised for a disastrous 2019 Mzansi Super League campaign so far.
The Stars are the reigning champions, after beating the Cape Town Blitz in last year’s inaugural final.
However, they have since suffered six consecutive defeats in 2019. Their latest loss was to the Tshwane Spartans at Wanderers on Sunday.
‘We’re doing this with the aim of finding corrective measures for our remaining games. We will look at both our on- and off-field approach with a special focus on our batting, bowling, fielding and our strategic approach,’ said head coach Donovan Miller.
Central Gauteng Lions chief executive officer Jono Leaf-Wright added: ‘From the Jozi Stars team management, we continue to get behind the team and provide continuous support and motivation.
‘We are fully behind the team. Mzansi Super League is a great platform that showcases and profiles local and international talent on a global footprint. The performance of each team is pivotal in the growth of the game and attracting new fans.’
The Stars will host the Paarl Rocks on Sunday and travel to Centurion to play the Spartans four days later.
‘As Jozi Stars we do acknowledge that we have disappointed our valued fans, however, having said that we’ve come up against superb competition which is exactly what this tournament is all about. We look forward to bouncing back in our remaining four games,’ added Leaf-Wright.
