The North West Dragons captain, Kagiso Rapulana and his Dragons team mate Isaac Dikgale have been  selected for the SA Invitation XI to face Zimbabwe in a three day warm-up tour match this month in Paarl.

This is well deserved following Rapulana’s excellent season where he has dominated with the bat in the longer format. He achieved his top score of 259* against Northern Cape in November and since then has been on a role.
