STELLENBOSCH. – Wynberg Boys’ High’s Juan James has been named the South African Schools’ captain of 2022.
Western Province also came out on top by 146 runs against KwaZulu-Natal in the main match of the Khaya Majola Week at the Coetzenberg Oval here.
James is the first player from Wynberg Boys’ High to be named SA Schools’ captain. The first SA Schools’ side was chosen back in 1940.
Bongile Mfunelwa from Rondebosch Boys’ High and Liyema Waqu of SACS are the other two WP teammates from James who made the SA Schools’ side.
Mfunelwa was also named the Player of the Tournament for his efforts during the week.
Waqu, Nathan Jacobs (Boland), and Richard Seletswane (Gauteng) added a second SA Schools’ Cap to their collection. Meeka-eel Prince who represented the side last year in Potchefstroom did not make the cut this year. Prince was also not named in the SA Colts side.
St Stithians College of Johannesburg produced another two SA Schools’ players with Kwena Maphaka and Seletswane both earning selection. Both have already represented the national u19-side this year during Cricket South Africa’s T20 series.
