KZN face SA’s top schools

2013-09-17 00:00

THERE are some mouth-watering clashes ahead at the 54th Michaelmas Week to be hosted by Maritzburg College starting on Saturday.

The cream of KwaZulu-Natal schools face the cream of schools from the north for four days. The first three days see 50 over matches and on Tuesday, the last day of the week, there will be nine T20 matches.

There are seven grounds in Pietermaritzburg being used, two at College, two at Varsity, the St Charles and Maritzburg Oval and Collegians, with two country district club grounds: Eston and, for the first time, the Richmond Country Club.

Affies, King Edward and St Stithians are arguably the top sides from outside the province, although Grey College can never be taken lightly. Pretoria Boys’, St Alban’s, St John’s and St David’s will also be stern opposition. The ninth side are Hudson Park and each year they are getting stronger, so there will be few easy games for the KZN teams.

Saturday: PMB Oval — Northwood vs KES; Varsity Oval — Kearsney vs Grey College; Goldstones — M College vs St Stithians; Varsity 2 — Glenwood vs Affies; St Charles Oval — St Charles vs St Alban’s; Collegians — DHS vs St David’s; Barns — Hilton vs Hudson Park; Eston — Westville vs Pretoria BHS; Richmond — Michaelhouse vs St John’s.
