Daniel Pienaar THS first team cricketer and Grade 11 learner Kenan Smith has been selected for the South Africa U/19 cricket team.

The team will tour Sri Lanka from 18th June to 15th July 2016.

Kenan started his cricket career as a 12 year-old when he was encouraged by his coach, Zarier Sirkhotte, to join Union Uitenhage Cricket Club. Kenan played in the men’s league.

Kenan represented EP U/15 in 2014 and EP U17 in 2015. He was also a member of the SA U/17 training camp in Pretoria in 2015.

Kenan moved to his current club Northville CC in 2015 when his coach started coaching there.

He plays in the Clubs Premier League.

Kenan also represented Warriors U19 team at the Cubs Week in January 2016.

“It is an absolute pleasure coaching Kenan as he is one of the most hardworking and disciplined cricketers that I have ever coached. Kenan practises four hours per day and his work ethic is unbelievable,” said Zarier Sirkhotte.

What makes Kenan’s achievement more special is that he is only 17 years old.
