Menlopark makes strides towards the top ten of this week’s Powerade Performance Top 50 Cricket Rankings for the First XI’s after winning the Coca-Cola T20 Challenge Finals over the weekend.

School Cricket Fixtures and Results for this week:

Declaration cricket at school level is currently not achieving the objects it was designed for. Instead of encouraging positive cricket and simulating test cricket scenarios, it is nullifying the massive gulf in quality between sides and more often than not it is ending in a stale draw.

The Coca-Cola® T20 Schools Challenge Finals are finally upon us. After a long and challenging road, over 72 cricketers from six schools will be in action this weekend at the University of Stellenbosch to determine who will take victory for their respective province in the Schools Challenge.

Cricket: The Main Verreynne Does Something Insane!

Written by

On Sunday the 15th of February 2015,  Kyle Verreynne took the Somerset College T20 festival by storm. He amassed a total of 211 runs in the two matches without being dismissed once, a feat that saw the Wynberg talisman notch up the “batsman of the tournament” award.

Johannesburg’s top team so far in 2015, St. Stithians, break into the top three of the Powerade Performance Rankings thanks to some very consistent cricket across the various formats.

What has been noticeable so far this season is how the traditional rugby schools like Potch Volkskool and EG Jansen have taken to the game and especially in the T20 format where they have been able to beat the big name teams.

Potch Volkies is the Highveld Lions’ T20 champion after they have beaten the Gauteng champion, KES, convincingly with 4 wickets at Senwes Park on Tuesday 10 February.

Wynberg and Rondebosch swap places on the Powerade Performance Rankings for the First XI’s this week which was most likely due to Wynberg able to secure a comfortable win over Paarl Gym, whilst Rondebosch had to settle for a draw against SACS.

Check out this week’s Fixtures & Results here:

Rondebosch hit the front and take the top spot away from Hilton College on the Powerade Performance Rankings after a comfortable victory over Boishaai!

Regularly updated cricket fixtures and results for this week and for over the weekend.

An impressive win by high-flying Hilton College over Kearsney College helped to consolidate their position at the top of the Powerade Performance Cricket Rankings for this week although the likes of Rondebosch and Waterkloof move up the table as they mount a challenge for the top spot.

AB de Villiers copied a matric pupil from Volkskool Potchefstroom on that Sunday when he hit that magnificent innings at the Wanderers Bullring on the 18th of January!

A cracking season of cricket is underway with many of the teams that will be in action over the weekend having already participated in several festivals and tours, so the quality and form of the players should be very good.

Most of the top teams across the country have taken part in several festivals that were held during January which has helped to reignite their form for the 2014/15 season.

The culmination of the Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Cricket week each year is the announcement of the SA Schools and SA Colts teams.  The SA Schools team will play a Titans team tomorrow, Monday, 22 December at SuperSport Park and the SA Colts team will play a Titans Invitation XI at St Albans College.  Both games start at 10am.

Gauteng won the main game at the Coca-Cola Khaya Majola for the second year in a row when they beat Western Province by four wickets at St Alban’s College in Pretoria on Sunday.

Despite losing almost a full day of play due to rain at the U19 Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Cricket Week, currently taking place in Pretoria, by lunch time of the third day there were a number of players who had produced a few excellent performances, putting their hands up as players to watch out for in the remaining games, which is what the tournament is all about – making heroes.

Western Province’s Kyle Verreyn and Stefan Klopper of Northerns were the individual heroes of the opening day of the U19 Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Week in Pretoria on Wednesday.

The best up and coming cricketers in South Africa will come together in Pretoria from 17-22 December for the Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Under-19 Week. This Week is Cricket South Africa's (CSA) top cricket development programme and one of the biggest influences in the CSA development pipeline. 

A mighty effort by Hilton College who managed to go unbeaten in what was a terrific season for the KZN team, almost saw them overtake Waterkloof in the final placing on the Powerade Performance U14 Rankings for 2014.

Waterkloof led from start to finish in the Powerade Performance U15 Rankings during 2014 and are congratulated for ending up as the leading team in South Africa once again.

Only a handful of matches were played over the past week as the 2014 cricket season finally draws to a close. However with several outstanding results now flooding in we do have some movement on the Powerade Performance Rankings which has looked fairly settled during the past few weeks.

In November 2014, ten year old Malikah Hamza, a Grade four learner at Wynberg Girls Junior, became the youngest cricketer ever to play against a senior international cricket side.
