Warriors coach Malibongwe Maketa went to the same school and played in the same provincial team as Makhaya Ntini, but has never really had the chance to go up against him until now. Chicago Cubs Jerseys . Maketa has been handed the South Africa A coaching duties and will take the team to Zimbabwe, where Ntini is currently the national teams head coach. Maketa admitted he is looking forward to the challenge of facing a former team-mate and another countryman Lance Klusener, who is also working with South Africas neighbours.Theyll have a little bit of a know-how of what we are going to bring in terms of intensity with them being South African. And theyll know the aggression we are going to bring and can prepare accordingly, Maketa said. They could most probably play their Test team so it will give a lot of our guys a lot of confidence to do well.Zimbabwe, who have yet to confirm a head coach after elevating Ntini to the interim role for their India series last month, will use the two matches as preparation for their upcoming Tests against New Zealand. They have not played Test cricket in 19 months, since a tour to Bangladesh in November 2014, and are likely to give their best players and their new permanent coach a dry run before taking on New Zealand.That means South Africa A can expect tough competition as their own side prepares for an 11-Test summer which is certain to test their depth. To ensure they have a large pool of players to choose from, South Africas selectors have sent current Test players and hopefuls on the A trip. Among them are opening batsman Stephen Cook, who will captain the side, recovered quick Vernon Philander, who missed most of last season after tearing ligaments in India, offspinner Dane Piedt, fast bowler Hardus Viljoen who debuted against England last season, and Test discards Stiaan van Zyl and Dane Vilas. Maketa expects all of them to use these matches as auditions for the 2016-17 season.Weve got guys on different journeys: guys who are preparing for Test matches and guys who are trying to get into Test teams, everybody thats here should believe they are the next best to play for their country, he said. Its a great opportunity for them to get the first showing in terms of our summer to say to the selectors we are here and ready to play Test cricket.At the same time, the tour could also be seen as a place for Maketa to show what he is capable of. Although he has only spent one full season in charge of a franchise, and did not win any trophies in his debut summer, Maketa has served as an assistant coach over several more years, with both Warriors and Titans, where he enjoyed success alongside Rob Walter. With pressure mounting on current coach Russell Domingo, its not too far a leap to conclude that Maketa may be being groomed for higher honours in the future.If he is, it is something he would welcome. I would be lying if I said I was not interested in coaching the national team. In whatever career you are at, you want to be the best at it. To coach a national team would be a benchmark for any coach who is out there. I am no different, he said. At the moment its great for me as a coach of a team like this, with guys who seriously want to go somewhere. When youve got cricketers who want to go somewhere, you will always be chasing something special.Maketa will also be in charge of the team when they travel to Australia for two more first-class matches and a quadrangular 50-over tournament and wants to be measured on his results. Its not easy to stamp my own style on the team in such a short time but what I want is having the common goal of performance, he said. We measure everybody on performance. In that way, its much easier for me to measure myself and to measure the team on the journey we are taking.It will not go amiss in South Africa that Ntini can be measured the same way. The countrys third highest Test wicket-taker has never coached at home and, a few weeks ago, lamented the lack of opportunities in an interview with the Sunday Times . Ntini has only enjoyed small success with Zimbabwe. They won one T20 against India in an otherwise dismal series but if he can build on that, South African administrators may come calling for him too. Koji Uehara Jersey . Irving scored 23 points, Tristan Thompson had 20 points and 10 rebounds and the Cavaliers beat the Denver Nuggets 117-109 on Friday night. Custom Chicago Cubs Jerseys . LOUIS -- Lance Lynn was one of the more enthusiastic participants as the St. . Only three players drafted by NHL clubs were included on the Czech selection camp roster on Wednesday. Those players were Dallas Stars 2012 first-rounder Radek Faksa, Winnipeg Jets 2013 fourth-rounder Jan Kostalek and Phoenix Coyotes 2012 seventh-rounder Marek Langhamer. CINCINNATI -- No blown leads this time. The Cardinals bullpen made one big inning stand up.Brandon Moss drove in a pair of runs during St. Louis four-run first inning, extending his season-long streak against the Reds, and the Cardinals held on for a 5-4 victory over Cincinnati on Wednesday night to even their series.St. Louis had lost back-to-back games on walk-off hits, including a 7-5 loss to the Reds on Tuesday night that ended with a three-run homer off Seung Hwan Oh. The Cardinals fill-in closer was the one celebrating this time after getting his eighth save in 10 chances.Some games you need to remember, and also there are some games you need to forget, Oh said, through the teams translator. I want to remember that (loss) and move forward.St. Louis sent nine batters to the plate against Cody Reed (0-6) in the first inning, with Moss and Greg Garcia each driving in a pair of runs. Stephen Piscotty added a solo homer, the Cardinals fifth in two games.Moss and Jhonny Peralta returned from the disabled list at the start of the series and have contributed as the teams split the first two games. Moss is 5 for 9 with three doubles and a homer.For the season, hes 12 of 28 (.429) against the Reds with three doubles and five homers.Hes taking some great swings, manager Mike Matheny said. In the first inning, that was a great at-bat he put together.Michael Wacha (7-7) gave up a pair of runs in five innings as he won his fifth straight decision, and the bullpen took it from there.Weve got some pretty good options to throw out there, said left-hander Zach Duke, obtained in a trade with the White Sox on Sunday.The NL Central rivals conclude the series on Thursday. The Cardinals have won 18 of their past 22 series, including eight of 11 at Great American Ball Park.St. Louis had chances to pull out to an even bigger lead against Reed, but had a pair of runners thrown out at the plate as they tried to score from third base on grounders. Another was caught in a rundown between third and home.It seems like Im giving the same interview, said Reed, who allowed eight hits and a walk in five innings. Im not really performing. Its a battle for me right now.Joey Votto extended his ccareer-high hitting streak to 17 games with an RBI single in the first inning. Javier Baez Jersey. Its the longest streak by a Reds player since Brandon Phillips hit in 22 in a row in 2007. Votto is 29 for 58 (.500) during the streak.The Cardinals Yadier Molina went 0 for 2, walked and was hit by a pitch, ending his 16-game hitting streak.Piscottys 15th homer made it 5-2 in the fifth. He was involved in helping the Reds cut the deficit in the sixth.Adam Duvall hit a fly ball down the right field line, and the ball deflected off Piscottys glove as he tried to make a sliding catch, resulting in a triple.Phillips singled for a run, and then was called out at second base as the Cardinals tried to turn a double play. Phillips was ruled safe at second after a review, and he scored on Ivan De Jesus Jr.s single.STATSMolinas streak was the longest by a Cardinal since David Freese hit in 20 straight in 2013. ... Reds reliever Josh Smith pinch-hit for Reed in the fifth and doubled. He stayed in the game to pitch. The Reds had only three healthy reserves on the bench. Smith is the first Reds pitcher with a pinch hit since Micah Owings singled in 2010.LONG INNINGReed needed 36 pitches and 16 minutes to get three outs in the first inning. Wacha also struggled in the first inning, throwing 34 pitches while giving up a pair of runs.TRAINERS ROOMCardinals: Reliever Tyler Lyons went on the 15-day DL with a sore right knee. Den Kiekhefer was recalled from Triple-A.Reds: Shortstop Zack Cozart was out of the lineup for a second straight day with a sore finger on his throwing hand.UP NEXTCardinals: Mike Leake (8-8) hasnt walked a batter in his past 30 innings spanning five starts, a career best. Its the longest active streak in the majors and the second-longest this season behind Matt Schoemakers 30 1/3 innings without a walk for the Angels.Reds: Brandon Finnegan (6-8) is 1-1 against the Cardinals in five starts with a 3.66 ERA.
