Schools’ inland cricket sides named

2013-10-26 00:00

AFTER a fairly long wait, the KZN Inland sides have been approved, signed off by Inland president Yunus Bhamjee and the sides’ names released.

The players in the four high school age groups, as expected, come mainly from the four major cricketing schools in the region. The U13 team has players from seven different primary schools, but surprisingly none from Merchiston.

In the premier school side to go to the Coca Cola Khaya Majola week, there are five boys from Michaelhouse, three from Hilton and two apiece from Maritzburg College and St Charles. Of the team, five were at the Coke week in 2012, including Lungi Ngidi from Hilton and Greg Oldfield from Michaelhouse, who were both in the SA U19 side that was in India recently.

Sohail Mahmoud made the SA Colts XI after taking 12 wickets at the event last year. The other two are captain Kyle Pyne-James from Michaelhouse and Lwandizwa Zuma from College. Seven of the 13 boys in the team had some experience with the U17 team last year. With this core of experience there will be an expectation for the side to do well.

The U17 team is spread among eight schools, with College supplying three and two each from Michaelhouse and St Charles. Three of the players will be at their second U17 week — Kurtlyn Mannikam and Shaun Wormington from College, and Justin Marshall from Michaelhouse.

The U15 team is dominated by College with seven players, and three from Hilton.

Seven primary schools have players selected for the U13 team, with St Charles Prep having four players in the team. There is a pair from Cordwalles, Cowan House and Winterton.
