Hilton College trampled all over Glenwood in merciless fashion bundling the Durbanites out for a paltry 29 runs and handing them a mammoth defeat.

Cricket: Rondebosch Raze SACS

Rondebosch have been threatening in the early parts of the 2018 season to stamp their authority on the game and prove they are the big contenders to finish the year as the leading team in the country.

This Week’s School Cricket from around South Africa:

A brilliant unbeaten 133 run Zack Momberg from KES help to fashion a big win over St. Andrews School and in so doing nudge the Johannesburg team into the top three of this week’s U15 Belgotex Sports Rankings.

Yet another half century by Daniel Smith helped to secure a victory for the unbeaten SACS team who rest on top of this week’s Belgotex Sports First XI Rankings.

There are some promising matches that take place this week as the cricket season gets into full swing with most schools participating.

Cricket: The First 1st XI Rankings for 2018

The opening Belgotex Sports First XI Cricket Rankings for 2018 is out and even though the season is still barely crawling most of the expected front runners have already risen to the top of the ladder to occupy familiar real estate.

Perfect days on the cricket field are rare especially in school cricket where records tend to stand for decades without being challenged.

The history books of Graeme College however were re-written this past weekend when their two opening bowlers put in a performance that saw the opposition bundled out for a mere 25 runs.

I asked Pietermaritzburg-based physiotherapist Neil van Biljon to chat about fast bowling as it pertains to the body as well as general pointers to guide schoolboy athletes in whatever sports code.

Another Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Week has come and gone and as per usual the two most elite teams for any schoolboy to play for have been announced.

Two of the more fancied teams in this year’s Coca-Cola Khaya Majola week locked horns in the first encounter of the week at the Soweto Oval and it proved to be a confidence boosting win for KZN Inland.

Cricket: Pacemen Aplenty in KZN Midlands

Cricket history is littered with the tales of fast bowlers winning Test matches and more. You can score 1000 runs in a match but if you can't take 10 or 20 wickets - depending on the format of the game and other variables like declarations - you're not going to win many.

Hilton College’s rise to the top of school cricket in South Africa has been refreshing for the alumni of this famed school but it’s no accident and comes after a committed investment in setting up expert coaching during the past few years.

The U15 Cricket Rankings displays a distinct leaning towards the Eastern and Western Cape with only KES from Gauteng able to place amongst the top five.

Maritzburg College came down to earth with a bump last week after their crushing win over St.Charles College, which included several centurions.

As the final matches for the 2017 season get played we have a very settled table for this week’s First XI Belgotex Sports Top 60 rankings.

As the 2017 season draws to a close we have the usual suspects challenging for the top spots and this week it is still St.Stithians who are the leading team on the First XI Belgotex Sports Top 60 Rankings.

The Cricket results from around South Africa:

SACS lost a bit of traction on the top of the table following a draw with Rondebosch but not enough to knock them off the No.1 spot on this week’s U14 Belgotex Sports Rankings.

Rondebosch move up a place on the table into the top three on this week’s U15 Belgotex Sports Rankings after taking on a strong SACS team and outplaying them.
