With pension pots not being what they used to be, coupled with the high cost of living and extortionate petrol prices, the current financial situation has resulted in retired cricketers having to go back to work. To make ends meet, poor old AB de Villiers has had to dust his bat and pads down for another T20 Tournament. At least his travel expenses won't be through the roof, as he has joined his local side, the Tshwane Spartans, who play out of SuperSport Park. This team makes up the six franchises who are taking part in the inaugural Mzansi Super League. We are at all the matches throughout the next month, with the Cape Town Blitz hosting the Tshwane Spartans at PPC Newlands in the opening fixture.

Congratulations to Steve Haag who walked away with the coveted 2018 SA Sport Awards, Sports Photographer of the Year award. Steve has had a relationship with Gallo Images for over 10 years, primarily providing rugby coverage, specifically of his local side, the Sharks, as well as the Springboks when they are on their travels. He was not in Bloemfontein to collect his award on Sunday night, as he was making his way to Scotland to help us with coverage of the Springboks third Castle Outgoing Test Match.

Lastly, we have coverage of Bafana Bafana's crucial 2019 Total African Cup of Nations qualifier against African powerhouse, Nigeria. This really is a must-win fixture for South Africa, as the nations football team can't afford to miss out on another major football tournament. This is followed by an International friendly against Paraguay next Tuesday night.
