Cricket: Mynahs select school team

2012-11-20 00:00

EACH year the Kingsmead Mynahs select a cricket side of schoolboys, all of whom will be returning to school the following year, in other words Grade 11 youngsters. This is only done once the selectors from both KZN Coastals and KZN Inland have selected their U17 teams.

Those chosen for the Mynahs would have been on the fringes of selection for either the Coastal or the Inland U17 sides. There is a full programme organised for these boys starting with a full practice session at Sahara Kingsmead on Sunday, December 2. Thereafter, the boys have five matches. They will have a match against both KZN Coastal and KZN Inland and will be very competitive in both. There are no quotas with the Mynahs team. Against Coastals, they will play a 50-over game at Lahee Park and against Inland they play in a two-day game at Eston. It is a tough week with play, consecutively over six days.

Two players have played cricket for their first XI’s and can be considered to be the “seniors” of the team. Karl Hillermann has been a regular for College and C. Flowers has played for Glenwood this term.


A Hughes (Westville), S Buthelezi (Howick), C Flowers (Glenwood), K Hillermann (Maritzburg College), R McGrath (Kearsney), T Louw (Gwd), M Naidoo (Gwd), S Rugbar (Wvl), M Hay (Gwd), J Smit (Wvl), J Foster (Howick), A Whitelaw (Ksy), C Gordon (Wvl).
