Proteas women’s all-rounder, Suné Luus, is the official Tshwane Spartans Media Ambassador for the second edition of the Mzansi Super League.
Luus recently captained the Proteas in India in place of the injured Dané van Niekerk, leading the team in three one-day internationals and six T20 internationals.
While her team-mates are away playing in the Women’s Big Bash League and in respective tournaments around the country, the 23-year-old has opted to spend the start of the summer enhancing her skills off the field.
One of her assignments will include conducting post-match interviews for the Spartans’ digital channels, and as a current BA Communications Sciences student, Luus feels she will benefit from the chance of working with some of the world’s best T20 cricketers.
“I’m very excited to be joining the Tshwane Spartans team this year. I think it’ll be a great experience and a massive opportunity to gain as much exposure to the other side of the lens,” said Luus. “I believe this is an opportunity to lay a platform for potentially pursuing a career in the media, after cricket. Being part of a team like the Spartans, surrounded by an awesome bunch of guys and support staff, will certainly help me enjoy this experience. They have a very strong side this year, with the likes of AB, Lungi and Heinrich just to mention a few. I think they have a very good chance of competing, if not winning the competition.”
The Spartans open their campaign against Durban Heat on Saturday, 8 November at the coast, before returning for their first assignment on home soil on Wednesday, 13 November against the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants.
