National (235)

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.

This week’s cricket fixtures and results:

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.

The fixtures and results for this week’s school cricket from around the country.

During the school holidays around the country there was plenty of action taking place with the 55th Oppenheimar Week in KZN, Cape Schools Week and the Coca-Cola T20 Schools Challenge Finals sharing the lime-light and those results have had a significant bearing on the Powerade Performance Rankings.

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.

U15 Cricket: The Top 40 Rankings for 01/10/2014

Take a look at this week’s Powerade Performance U15 Cricket Rankings.

In October 2013 over 11 000 cricketers from over 650 schools started on their journey to represent their respective franchise in the national finals of the Coca-Cola® T20 Schools Challenge.  The grueling qualifiers are now over and Grey College (Knights), St Stithians College (Lions), Waterkloof Hoerskool (Titans), Kingwood College (Warriors), Wynberg Boys’ High (Cobras) and Westville High School (Dolphins) will lock horns at the Tuks High Performance Centre, Pretoria, from the 3rd to the 5th October.

Steady progress by Hilton College, who enjoyed a hugely successful tour of Zimbabwe where they won the Ram Slam T20 Tournament, sees them climb into the Top 10 for the first time this year in the Powerade Performance First XI Rankings.

THE indications are that the Maritzburg College first XI are raring to go for the Oppenheimer Cricket Week, but there are a couple of hurdles to overcome first.

Cricket Results and Fixtures for the Week ending 27th September, 2014 here:

Like the U15’s and First XI Rankings we find Waterkloof at the very top of the U14 Powerade Performance Rankings after the resumption of the season in 2014.

The U15 Powerade Performance Rankings takes on more importance as the season gets underway in earnest in this week but already there is a familiar look with Waterkloof way out in front with an unbeaten record so far in 2014.

A comprehensive win by St. Stithians over St. Johns College kept them in the hunt for the top spot in the Powerade Performance First XI Rankings but it is still Waterkloof who keep extending their mammoth unbeaten run who hold on to the number one position.

Cricket gradually starts to take centre stage in more weekend sports of more schools this week and if the weather is favorable there will be plenty of opportunity to get some early form in.

Cricket resumes this week although most of the school’s are still preparing for the various festivals and tournaments that will take place next month.

A highly successful St. David’s T20 Festival has seen a few teams move on the Powerade Performance Cricket Rankings although most of the school’s are yet to resume playing after a long wait for the rugby season to end.
