College, Kearsney face off

2010-10-09 00:00

THERE is a full programme of school cricket matches today, with 30 games scheduled. Most interest will be centred on the Durban area, where four matches between the top schools are being played.

Two sides who have both been unbeaten against other KZN schools, Kearsney and Maritzburg College, meet at Botha’s Hill. The game in the first term was washed out, but Kearsney won the last encounter between the two schools at the end of last year.

The two teams had similar results at the Oppenheimer Michaelmas Week, winning two, losing one and one with no result.

Today’s result could go either way, with in-form batsmen on both sides and the bowling attacks both competent. It could come down to the side who field the best, taking every chance that may come to them.

The other top game in Durban is at DHS, who will be hosting Hilton. The home side had a successful Michaelmas Week where they won two matches, lost against Hudson Park on the last day and had one match declared no result due to bad light. This was much better than Hilton, who had a poor week, losing three matches with the other rained off at lunchtime.

This will make DHS favourites.

Glenwood surprised all with a comprehensive win over Grey College, and if they can produce some of their good form from the Michaelmas Week, then they will make it tough for Michaelhouse despite the long trip to Balgowan.

St Charles host Northwood and since the latter were not at Michaelmas Week, St Charles, who played a mixture of good and bad cricket in their four games, will be favourites and hoping to play a good game.

Other selected fixtures: Westville vs Clifton, George Campbell vs Chatsworth, Carter vs Treverton, Hillcrest vs Voortrekker, St Henrys vs New Forest, Howick vs Westville II, Wartburg vs Maritzburg College III, Crawford LL vs Thomas More.
