The two most famous school cricket weeks (The Michaelmas Cricket Week & The Cape Schools Cricket Week) start this weekend.
Here is a Preview of the Michaelmas Week with former players both South Africa & International who have played at the week. New Zealand school Westlake are making their 2nd appearance after they participated in 2005 with Ross Taylor in their team.
Cricket: Oppenheimer Week! History, Fixtures & Results
Quite a few surprising omissions in schools this year. No Kearsney College (Andrew Hudson & current SA U19 captain Chad Bowes school), No Westville Boys (former SA coach Micky Arthur & school of three current Dolphins contracted players), No Michaelhouse (Herby Taylor & Dale Benkensteins school in the Balgowan Hills near Pietermaritzburg), No St John's College from Jhb (Clive Rice's school and current Lions players Jean Symes & Devon Conway).
Hopefully there will be a preview for the Cape Schools Cricket week soon. Obviously some huge schools from the Western cape & Eastern Cape there. Wynberg Boys, Rondebosch Boys, Bishops, SACS, Grey PE, Dale College, Selborne College, Queens College etc.
