STANGER Manor Primary School will host the 10th anniversary Shivendra Velan memorial sixes tournament, commencing on Thursday, September 20.

Isaac Abraham, principal of Manor Primary School, said: “Shivendra was a grade six pupil at our school in 2008 when he was hospitalised for a few days before passing away. To perpetuate his memory, his parents Ravi and Rohini Velan have decided to sponsor a tournament each year in his memory. He would have turned 21 years old on September 15.”

Matches will be played on a knockout basis.

The duration of each game will be five overs per side. Each over must be bowled by five different players with a dedicated wicket-keeper throughout the match.

A wicket-keeper is not allowed to exchange his gloves for the ball (to bowl).

Trophies will be awarded to the winners and runners-up and medals awarded to the third and fourth teams.

Special awards will be presented to the best bowler, fielder and batsman of the tournament.

At Dawnview Primary School, the hosts will entertain KwaDukuza Primary before Ashram lock horns with Harry Bodasingh Primary for a place in the place in the semi-finals.

Manor Primary will entertain Glenhills Primary in the opening round before Beaches Primary do battle with Stanger Heights.

The play-offs for third spot and the final will take place on Wednesday, September 26 at the Manor Primary School ground.

Lunch, sponsored by the Velan family, will be given to all participants.
