KZN Coastal announces school sides for national weeks

Durban – The KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union announced its various schools sides taking part in the national schools weeks around the country over the December period.

The six provincial teams were capped at a ceremony at Hollywoodbets Kingsmead Cricket Stadium on Friday evening.

Coastal Cricket Services Manager Ritesh Ramjee wished the coaches and players all the best while thanking those people who were responsible for getting the players into the various squads.

“A special word of thanks to the Schools Associations, and the teachers that do such an amazing job ensuring that our mandate to grow and improve the quality of cricket in our province is achieved,” Ramjee said.

“To the coaches and staff of the KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union, as well as the selectors, thank you for the role that you have played in getting our teams to where they are today.

“Lastly congratulations to the players on their selection. We are confident that the group of players, along with management, have done all the necessary work to perform at their best when the national weeks commence.”

The flagship side, the KZN Under 19 side will contest the Khaya Majola Cricket Week just up the road in the KZN Midlands at Michaelhouse from 16-20 December.

Unfortunately for the side they will be without the services of SA Under 19 seamer Lifa Ntanzi who has been ruled out of cricket until 2020 with a stress fracture in his back.

Kenneth Mafunga will be the coach of the Under 19 side while former Hollywoodbets Dolphins seamer Ugasen Govender will be his assistant coach.
