The Warriors is the name used by the combined Eastern Province and Border first class cricket teams in South Africa. Their home venues are St George's Park, Port Elizabeth and Buffalo Park, East London.
The combined team, previously known as the Chevrolet Warriors for sponsorship purposes, play in the Sunfoil Series first-class competition, the Momentum 1 Day Cup and the Ram Slam T20 Challenge limited over competitions. They were the 2009/2010 MTN Domestic Championship and Standard Bank Twenty20 winners, as well as runners-up to the Chennai Super Kings in the 2010 Champions League Twenty20 held in South Africa.
Since the 2011/2012 season, they have been participating in the Momentum 1 Day Cup. They also currently participate in the Ram Slam T20 Challenge, and the Sunfoil Series, both of which came into inception in the 2012/2013 season.
During the month of October each year, the side eschews their traditional black and electric green colours in favour of a bold pink playing kit to show their support of Breast Cancer Awareness as well as their fundraising efforts for Reach for Recovery.
