Shortly after recovering from a wrist injury, Kieran Bowers went on to represent the Western Cape in a regional provincial cricket tournament.

Kieran is a batsman for the Kenilworth-based Primrose Hub u.13 team. He accidentally broke his wrist in September and had reportedly just had his cast removed when he played on Saturday 17 November in the tournament held at Aalwyn Park in Belhar, breaking a record for the second time this year.

Kieran scored 243 runs, beating his record of 202 runs he made in August this year.

He has even bigger plans as he will soon be participating in the South African Summer Games along with other selected local players.

These games will be held at Wits University in Johannesburg until Friday 14 December. They started yesterday, Monday 10 December.

Expressing his excitement, Kieran says: “I feel proud and excited, especially coming back from an injury and then making the team only a few days after I was fit to play again.

“I told myself not to lose focus and kept my head still throughout the game. Cricket makes me happy – even just watching cricket makes me happy. When I play with the people I know and trust, it just boosts my confidence and makes me want to carry on.”

He is looking forward to learning from other players and making friends during the Summer Games.

“However, I will be there to play cricket and I hope to score runs and take catches behind the stumps.”

“My partner and I reminded each other to stay in all the way.”

He gets his inspiration from spending time watching cricket on TV and attending matches at Newlands Stadium in his spare time. He looks up to JP Duminy.

“He keeps his shape, plays with style and is unpredictable.”

His teammate Yaseen Mohammed says Kieran really shone at the provincial tournament, saying: “The match was an amazing experience and it’s always a pleasure to bat with a dynamic batsman like Kieran.”
