Westville, College at it again

2011-02-26 00:00

THERE are just two major games in the province today. In the capital Maritzburg College will be hosting Westville while Glenwood host rivals DHS in Durban.

The independent schools are away in Pretoria playing at the Independent Schools’ Festival, traditionally hosted by St Albans. At Hilton, an U16 festival is being held that involves six schools.

College are favourites at Goldstones after recently beating Westville in the final of the Sunfoil School’s Night League. However, they will have to bat well, as Westville arguably have the best spin attack in the province.

College have probably the best pace attack and if the home wicket suits the fast bowlers then it should be College’s day again.

DHS could surprise at Glenwood where the game has often gone the way of the underdogs, and on results the home side is the favourite today. Whatever the outcome it will be closely contested.

At St Albans the sides were involved in a two-day match on Thursday and yesterday. The weekend sees the sides from KZN, Kearsney, Hilton, Michaelhouse, St Charles and Clifton, involved in two 50-over games.

The U16 Festival at Hilton started yesterday and today there will be three limited-over games and tomorrow the teams play two Twenty20 matches. Hosts Hilton, St Charles and Clifton are joined by St Johns, St Davids and St Stithians from Gauteng.
