KZN cricket mourns deaths of two deaf cricketers

Durban - The cricket fraternity in KwaZulu-Natal has been stunned by the deaths of two members of the provincial deaf cricket side in a car crash on the weekend.

Terrence Govender and Trishan Reuben were returning from a match on Sunday when the accident happened.

“We have lost two fine young gentlemen at such a young age,” said Steven Gertenbach, the chairman of the KwaZulu-Natal Deaf Cricket Association.

“This is a tragedy beyond words and we hope that their families, colleagues and team mates in the deaf cricket community draw comfort from the fact that they were loved, admired and respected throughout the community and on the cricket field,” he added.

“It is tragic to mourn the passing of these two enthusiastic young cricketers and this tragedy has shaken the entire cricket community in this province,” said KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union’s CEO Heinrich Strydom.
