Budding cricket star Owethu Saqaza (17), a learner of the Louis Botha Technical High School in Bloemfontein, has been chosen as the SuperSport Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month for Express.

He was chosen as the July winner for his achievements in cricket.

Owethu was included in the Regional Performance Centre’s u.18 squad, and he excelled at the provincial cricket trials.

His selection continues his steady rate of improvement since 2017.

He obtained half colours at his school, and also played in the Free State League last year.

His excellent performance saw him awarded the Standard Bank Trophy for being the best fielder.

This achievement was followed by a promotion to play for his school’s first cricket team.

This year, he was appointed as the team’s vice-captain.

Owethu’s motto is: “Be your own competition.”

  • More on the Let’s Play initiative:

Over time, SuperSport has evolved as the quintessential sports authority.

It has been perfectly poised to harness this power and rally the public and corporates to truly make a difference in society.

SuperSport identified issues severely inhibiting the development of children through skills learned by playing, physical education and sport.

It was with this insight that Let’s Play was born in November 2005.

The aim is to elevate awareness of the social situation and introduce and encourage play, activity and sport in schools.
