Cricket: 9 Wickets and 197 not out!

 

Ever heard of the cricketer named Dayyaan Galiem? Perhaps not but pencil in that name because there is every chance that the young Capetonian will be the next big thing to come out of Rondebosch Boy’s High.

 

Eastern Cape Cricket: Cricket at St.Andrew’s College seems to be at an all time high as they continue to produce some high class cricket and are proving to be a difficult team to put away.

The sparkling performance of young bowler Malusi Siboto, who took a 5-wicket haul for the Chevrolet Knights in the domestic 1-Day Cup, as well as the Cobras’ Richard Levi’s mind-boggling 110 off 56 balls, throws up the question, “Where do these youngsters come from?”

De Kock & Savage Warming Up English Weather

In what has been at times some pretty poor weather for cricket the SA U19 team has enjoyed a great tour so far and several players have shown some great potential. Two of these players are Quinton de Kock and Calvin Savage.

Three teams of Hoërskool Die Wilgers in Pretoria, last week ensured that their school's trophy cabinet is well stocked when they recorded some memorable victories in the Tshwane city cup finals.

In a Landmark judgment yesterday, a former school rugby player won his case against an opposing player who injured his so severely during a scrum that it left him with a broken neck, reported the Mercury newspaper.

T20 cricket has taken the world by storm. One only has to look at the millions spent on top players for the T20 Indian Premier League to realize, whether us purists like it or not, that T20 is here to stay and revolutionise cricket as we know it. While I write this article the Cricket World Cup is raging on, with the minnows looking decidedly out of their league in the 50 Over format of the game. Its only natural as the longer the game the more skill, technique and dare I say professionalism is required in order to perform effectively.

(Stellenbosch 20 February 2011) The Standard Bank Schools Pro20 Challenge in Stellenbosch ended in sensational style on Sunday, when it required a Super Over to separate victors Hoërskool Waterkloof from Hoërskool Noordkaap.

 

(Stellenbosch 20 February 2011) Titans representative Hoërskool Waterkloof and Knights team Hoërskool Noordkaap went through to the final of the Standard Bank Schools Pro20 Challenge in Stellenbosch on Sunday after both beat established cricket schools in their third round matches on Sunday morning.

Jason Smith made an unbeaten 54 to help Wynberg Boys High of the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras to a seven-wicket victory over Grey High in the first match in the national finals of the Standard Bank Schools Pro20 Challenge at Sahara Park Newlands on Friday afternoon.

THE signs are already there that Maritzburg College and KwaZulu-Natal Inland schoolboy fast bowler Daryn Dupavillon has the talent, aptitude and big-match temperament to go all the way in the game."He is a Daryn_Dupavillonright-arm quick bowler with enormous potential," says College first team coach and SA U19 selector Mike Bechet.

MOSIKILI TAKES FIVE FOR ONE FOR FREE STATE!

(Potchefstroom 16 December 2010) Six Accolades - two for bowling and four for batting -- were awarded on a rain-interrupted fourth day of the Standard Bank Cricket Week in Potchefstroom on Wednesday.
Because of rain in the morning, no play was possible until after lunch, and the scheduled 50-over matches were reduced to 36 overs.

At the age of just 21 Hashim Amla was already a test player and at the tender age of just 17 had started his first class career in KwaZulu-Natal with the Dolphins. Now he has become a fixture in the Protea's lineup and one of the leading batsmen in the world in all formats of the game. With 28 Test centuries to his name Hashim has proven that there is still place for gentleman in the sport who are able to dominate the opposition and still remain humble.  But where did it all begin? Hashim Amla talks exclusively to School Sport - The Magazine about his schooldays.

Calvin Savage- College Speedster!

Sports clubs the world over are littered with the tales of former schoolboy sporting prodigies who never quite made the grade. 'Sure things' who were going all the way, until the responsibilities of life and the emergence of their own limitations came to the fore. These savageymen often sit at the corner of the bar as their colleagues reminisce of a time when they reigned supreme. This is not such a story; it can't be.

James Price! He's Not Cheap!

The small town of Grahamstown in the poverty stricken Eastern Cape will most certainly have something to write home about in the next couple of years. If everything goes according to plan they will be able to lay testament to nurturing and producing one of SouthJames_Batting_18_-_Copy Africa's up and coming young cricket sensations. To be more direct, the real credit will be given to St Andrew's College, one of South Africa's oldest educational institutions for they have developed James Price from the tender age of 5.

One of the most humbling sites awaits any school cricketer who receives the privilege of playing on Lower field towards the end of an exhaustive day of cricket. With the sun setting amidst the famous clock-tower in the background dedicated to those lost in wars gone by you feel a sense of pride and duty to uphold the gentlemen's game.
