    Nice looking squad for SA u19s

    Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Wednesday named the 15-man, Coca-Cola South Africa under-19s squad that will take on 2016 ICC U19 World Cup winners, West Indies in a five-match, Youth One-Day International (ODI) series from 09 to 19 July 2017 in Durban and Pietermaritzburg.

    Raynard van Tonder, who was named as the new team captain, will have nine new caps to lead, including Thando Ntini, son of former Proteas fast bowler, Makhaya. The remaining six boasts players who were part of the team that beat Sri Lanka in an ODI series in January of this year, including experienced campaigner Wandile Makwetu, who is the most capped player in the side, having made his debut at the 2016 World Cup in Bangladesh.

    Coach, Lawrence Mahatlane is pleased with the team selected and believes that this series will do well to begin the team’s preparation for the 2018 U19 World Cup in New Zealand.

    “Testing ourselves against the world champions is an ideal opportunity for us as a team to see where we are with the 2018 World Cup just around the corner. It is an exciting team with only six players having previously represented South Africa, this is a great opportunity for those selected to showcase their talent.”

    CSA High Performance Manager, Vincent Barnes said; “With the ICC U19 World Cup only a few months away, the West Indies series is a very important series for our team. There have been a few changes to the squad that beat Sri Lanka earlier this year and the West Indies, who are the current World Cup champions will provide the required stiff opposition for the home side.”

    South Africa will arrive in Durban on 28 June, while West Indies will arrive on the 30th.

    That's a very nice fast bowling group. All can bat as well.

    I think this team could give a good account of themselves. Won't be too many changes ahead of the world cup I would imagine. van Tonder and Breetzke should get more amateur cricket into them. Also excited to see a bit of Jacob Miltz who there is a bit of a buzz about. Once again the Lions are the biggest contributors to SA u19 teams.

    Remember calling Tom Curran out when he left SA after being part of CSA u17 camps even though a Zimbo at boarding school.

    One of the best if not the best fast bowlers at Csa u15 week last year was a lad called Michael Booth. Exact sam circumstances and school as Curran. He just won KZNI u15 cricketer of the year and had a very good first term with Hilton College first XI. Wonder what his future holds. SA, Zim, Eng. I think with our difficulties it wouldnt surprise me if he made a similar move as Curran if the opportunity arose.

    A few bits and bobs for SA u19 squad.

    St Andrews Bloem have had a few players in SA u19/SA Schools squads in recent years but never had one break into the professional cricket with much success. They've always lived in the shadow of Grey Bloem.

    Their two stars go back to Lindsay Tuckett and Peter Carlstein who both played for SA.

    Great little piece with Gerald Coetzee and their Lindsay Tuckett High Performance Centre. They genuinely believe he will go all the way with the hard work to come.

    Gerald Coetzee selected for SA u19 cricket team | St Andrew's School - Bloemfontein

    Probable team

    Breetzke
    Makwetu (wk)
    Christensen
    van Tonder (c)
    Miltz
    Mokgakane
    Coetzee
    Jones
    Ntini
    Smith
    de Klerk

    * Breetzke or Miltz could easily keep wicket too.

    Pillay (reserve opening bat) - may open with him and put Makwetu down the order.
    Rolfes (reserve middle order)
    Campher (will push Jones & Ntini)
    Molefe (will push Smith/de Klerk)

    CSA 2017 Academy launch yesterday evening.

    19 year-old Michael Cohen replaced Ngidi. That is a fair effort from him. They must rate him as older guys like Dudgeon, Glover and even contemporaries like Sipamla (who will no doubt be next year) weren't chosen.



    CRICKET SOUTH AFRICA (CSA) today launched this year’s Powerade National Academy Programme for the selected men’s and women’s squads inspired by the results achieved by last year’s intake.

    Several candidates from last year’s squad such as Mbulelo Budaza, Bjorn Fortuin, and Leus du Plooy went on to serve their franchises with distinction while Patrick Kruger was named Africa T20 Cup Player of the tournament, Jason Smith was selected for South Africa A and Andile Phehlukwayo went all the way to become a regular fixture in the Standard Bank Proteas limited overs squad.

    CSA also announced the appointment of Malibongwe Maketa as head coach for this year’s Academy Programme which runs until the end of July to be followed by the SA Emerging Squad tour of Zimbabwe in August for two four-day matches and three List A unofficial ODIs.

    The women’s programme will take place in September and October 2017. The modification of the dates will allow the National Women’s Coaching staff to work with both the National and Emerging women cricketers in preparation for the ICC Women’s Championship campaign which begins in January 2018.

    “The National Academy Programme forms a very strategic part of our developmental pipeline,” commented CSA General Manager: Cricket, Corrie van Zyl, “and has as its aim to prepare young players for the demands of professional cricket. These selected players that are carefully identified include previous graduates of the SA U/19 programme, performing Senior Provincial and emerging Franchise players.

    “This past year saw a highly successful SA Emerging Squad home series against Sri Lanka and it has been highly encouraging to see the manner in which a number of them have gone on to the next level of making their franchise squads while one, Andile Phehlukwayo, made his debut for the Standard Bank Proteas.

    “This confirms that this programme is living up to its expectations to assist CSA and its Members to develop the identified players in such a way that will produce quality players for our domestic competitions as well as prepare them for future international participation.

    “Once again I must extend our thanks to Powerade. As the CSA High Performance programme sponsor, they have made a meaningful impact on the development of these upcoming players,” concluded Van Zyl.

    Powerade SA National Academy Men’s Squad: Karabo Mogotsi (Gauteng), Wihan Lubbe (North West), Yaseen Vallie (Gauteng), Tony de Zorzi (Northerns), Janneman Malan (North West), Senuran Muthusamy (KZN), Isaac Digale (North West), Michael Cohen (WP), Lwandiswa Zuma (Free State), Tladi Bokako (EP), Okuhle Cele (KZN), Migael Pretorius (Northerns), Ndumiso Mvelase (Gauteng), Kyle Simmonds (Boland), Thomas Kaber (Northerns), Kyle Verrynne (WP), Matthew Christensen (EP), Wiaan Mulder (Gauteng)

    Mulder will join the squad once he has completed his SA A commitments.

    Management team: Malibongwe Maketa (Head Coach), Shane Burger (Assistant Coach), Nandile Tyali (Fitness Trainer), Michael Gwilliams (Physio), Hendrikus Coertzen (Video Analyst)

    2 warm-up games for SA 'A' washed out but I don't think it's the strongest competition.

    Zondo & Smith were the best in the first game.
    Hendricks and de Bruyn in the 2nd.

    Next up is England Lions.
