Weekend of great cricket

2013-11-09 00:00

SCHOOLS cricket resumes this weekend with some mouthwatering fixtures that should excite cricket enthusiasts both young and old.

Michaelhouse, with their wealth of talent and on the back of a huge 157-run victory over Clifton last week, welcome Northwood High School in what should be a hard fought encounter.

The fixtures are:

Michaelhouse vs

Northwood High School

After a huge 157-run victory at Clifton last week, Michaelhouse will be confident to get the job done when Northwood High School visit Balgowan.

SA Schools and SA Under-19 all-rounder Greg Oldfield was in devastating form with both bat (59) and ball (3/8), and Northwood should have their hands full trying to restrict.

But even more dangerous was Oldfield’s KZN Inland team-mate Luke Stevens, who contributed 76 with bat, and 4/18 with ball.

Hilton College vs

Kearsney College

Kearsney are on the back of a thrilling win against Maritzburg College and will fancy their chances when they visit Hilton College today. Keegan Foss (72) and Ryan Wallace (79) will look to carry on where they left off against College. Hilton were beaten in a shortened tight game when they visited Westville Boys’ High, and will hope for blue skies for today’s game.

Maritzburg College vs

Westville Boys’ High

Maritzburg College will be on Goldstones for the visit of a Westville Boys’ High side that easily won a rain-delayed game against Hilton College last week. College’s KZN Inland players, Lwandiswa Zuma, Sohail Mahmoud (both Under-19) and Jean de Wet (Under-17), were all in the wickets, and they will be key if College want to walk away from the game with a victory.

St Charles College vs

Howick High School

St Charles College will be confident to get the win against Howick High School.

In last week’s loss to Glenwood, they were beaten by SA Under-19 star Andile Phehlukwayo, who contributed a score of 85 not out and took three wickets for just 24 runs.
