THE 55th Oppenheimer Michaelmas Cricket Week hosted by Maritzburg College and played in and around the KZN capital as well as Richmond and Eston, has seen 27 matches played by the 18 teams over the last three days.

This feast of all that is good in schoolboy cricket has been marked by a healthy number of hundreds, tidy wicket-hauls and a host of exciting matches that have gone down to the wire.
