Burger's squad returned to training at the start of April after a period on furlough during the latest lockdown and he has been pleased with their performances in training. "We've had a really good block of training over the last six weeks and I've been impressed by how hard everyone has worked and the energy that we have in the squad at the moment. "It's just great to have cricket to look forward to. After such a long period without any matches it's really important for the guys to get out there and play again. They're absolutely raring to go. It's the start of an important six months for us and I know we would like to go out and perform to the expectations that we have set ourselves and also play a brand of cricket that will excite our fans."
