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.

Cricket: Results & Fixtures for 15/11/14

The Cricket season is all but over although there will still be several key matches to be decided this week in the South African School cricket scene.

This week there is plenty of action on the cricket fields around South Africa which includes several key declaration matches and chance for some younger players to represent their First XI in the Coca-Cola T20  matches.

More big wins by the Waterkloof juggernaut keeps the Pretoria team firmly entrenched at the top of the Powerade Performance Rankings for the U15’s.

A breathtaking loss by St. Stithians over KES blunted their chances of reaching the top of the Powerade Performance Rankings where we find Waterkloof once again occupying the Number One spot and it is looking increasingly likely that they will remain there.

Cricket: Feature on Grant Roelofsen

Written by


King Edward VII School (KES) first XI captain and SA Schools and SA U19 wicketkeeper/batsman Grant Roelofsen is making waves and the SA School Sports mag went to find out the why and what of this impressive young man.

St Stithians made inroads into Waterkloof’s lead for the number one position in the Powerade Performance Cricket Rankings this week with a very successful week. Saints enjoyed a fine week of wins which included a solid victory over St. Andrews School and Grey College and are putting a great deal of pressure on the leading team.

The Latest Powerade Performance U15 Cricket Rankings:

It is always of great interest to see the how the U14 cricketers are fairing and it does help to gauge what the future First XI’s will look like for any particular school. A look at the current Powerade Performance Rankings for the U14’s makes some absorbing reading.

There is very little change to the First XI Powerade Performance Rankings this week with a wet weekend in parts of the country causing some teams to lose out on an opportunity to make further advancement up the table.

Cricket: St Stithians T20 Champions!

St Stithians won the 2014 Coca-Cola Schools T20 title, beating Waterkloof by nine wickets in the final at The University of Pretoria on Sunday.  This is not only the first time the Lions has won this tournament, but the first time they have played in the final.

It is perhaps the biggest week of School Cricket of the year and most if not all the top teams will be in action around the country.
