Border, EP, SWD results and player stats at U19 Khaya Majola Week

The Under-19’s Coca Cola Khaya Majola Week 2016 was held in Bloemfontein over mid to late-December with each provincial or district side playing through all three formats of cricket, namely: T20, 50-overs and one-day matches.

Each side played two matches over each format, meaning a total of six games all together, which spanned from December 16th until December 20th in the Free State city. Border U19, South Western District U19 and Eastern Province U19 each won three of their six games, drew one and lost two respectively. However, it can be argued that EP and Border had played stronger opposition than the likes SWD had to face.

Over all three formats combined, the averages of both batsmen and bowlers from each side can show some fine recognition and exposure for young rising stars of the future.

Top EP U19 batsmen at the Khaya Majola Week (all formats) on averages:

Chris Benjamin (Avg- 65.00, HS- 105*); Matthew Breetzke (Avg- 61.00, HS- 101) and Jarryd Lookwhy (Avg- 55.00, HS- 134).

Top Border U19 batsmen (all formats) on averages:
