SA Schools and Colts teams named as Khaya Majola week draws to a close

2010-12-23 00:00

HEAVY early morning rain made pitches unplayable on the final day of the under 19 Coca Cola Khaya Majola Week. Only two premier grounds, the OUTsurance Oval and Grey College Volsteedt Oval, were suitable for Twenty20 games.

Boland defeated Western Province by seven wickets at Grey College after rain interrupted their match and it was reduced to 10 overs per side.

Free State lost their unbeaten record against Gauteng when Quinton de Kock again impressed with the bat, making 53 in 39 deliveries. Free State had been restricted to 91 by some tight Gauteng bowling. With De Kock leading the chase, Gauteng reached the target with six wickets in hand.

The SA Schools and Colts teams were announced at the dinner on Tuesday evening. Two Glenwood players, Shahil Bissoon and Sumanth Sunkari, have been included in the SA Schools team, which will be captained by Free State’s Keagan Rafferty from St Andrews School.

This is the third time that Free State have hosted the week in recent times and each time the Free State captain has been selected as the SA Schools captain. In 1987 Hansie Cronje was the schools captain, Johan Botha in 2000 and now Rafferty. The only difference is that Cronje and Botha were both Grey College lads, whereas Rafferty comes from the Independent St Andrews School.

The SA Colts team has two KZN Inland players, Tyler Lortan from Maritzburg College and Mzamo Cele from St Charles, together with Coastal’s Mark Airey from Kearsney, amongst the nine provinces represented. This team will be captained by Gauteng captain, Keaton Jennings from KES. He is the son of national Under 19 and former Protea coach, Ray Jennings.

The spread of talent is clearly seen as there are 12 of the 15 provinces (Namibian players were not eligible for selection) that were represented in the two teams.

The SA Schools team will play the Chevrolet Knights team, captained by Morné van Wyk who played for SA Schools in 1997. He is joined by six other SA Schools players: Reeza Hendricks (2007), Dean Elgar (2005), Waldo Lategan (2007), Con de Lange (1999), Obus Pienaar (2007) and Charl Pietersen (2001) from their respective Coca Cola Khaya Majola Weeks.

In the Free State provincial side due to play the SA Colts are two SA School’s players from the past, Griffin Niewoudt (2004) and Lotle Sesele (2006). This team will be captained by Chevrolet Knights player Wian van Zyl.
