Menlopark will start-off their title defence of the North/South T20-tournament against Wynberg Boys’ High this Thursday at Camp Discovery just north of Pretoria.
The annual T20 tournament of which AB de Villiers is the patron is probably the toughest schoolboy competition in the country. Menlopark, Waterkloof, St Stithians College, St Andrews of Bloemfontein and Rondebosch Boys’ High won the most of the national T20 titles between them.
Last year’s losing finalists, Centurion, will face Rondebosch Boys’ High in their opening clash. The team from Cape Town has in Lehan Botha one of the best schoolboy batsman in South Africa.
Botha boasts centuries against Grey High School (123*) and Selborne College (102*) so far in limited overs matches this season.
All the matches hosted on Waterkloof and Menlopark’s fields will be live streamed via digitv.co.za
The quarterfinals and semi-finals of the competition will be decided on Saturday, while the champion will be crowned on Sunday after the final which will also be hosted by Camp Discovery.
