The Titans team for the 2023 Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Week has been named, with four players from their 2022 side in the line-up for the event, which visits Makhanda this year from the 16th to the 20th of December.
Tristan Luus and Hernus Marais, from Hoërskool Waterkloof, will head up the side from Pretoria’s bowling attack for the second time in as many years, while Menlopark’s exciting prodigy, Steve Stolk, and Garsfontein’s talisman Mohammed Aslam, will seek to spearhead their batting as two-time selections.
Stolk’s performances with the bat not only earned him a call-up to the week but also secured him a spot in the Pretoria Capitals’ squad for next year’s SA20, while Luus made a couple of appearances for the SA Emerging side in the CSA Division Two One Day Cup before he was sidelined with a hamstring injury.
Marcus Bakker, from Waterkloof, gets a call-up after an amazing season with both bat and ball, and he helps give the Klofies the largest contingent in the squad.
Jorich van Schalkwyk and Lukas Janse van Rensburg are the only two representatives from Afrikaans Hoër Seunskool, while Cornwall Hill College saw Lethabo Phahlamohlaka and Jason Jansen named in the Titans’ squad.
Lungile Mabuza (Atteridgeville) and William Tshoke (Mamelodi) represent the Atteridgeville Hub and Mamelodi Hub respectively, and Prestige College’s Modise Maloka completes the squad.
