20 Dec 2022 SA SCHOOLS TEAMS ANNOUNCED
JOHANNESBURG: Cricket South Africa (CSA) has announced the 2022 SA Schools teams for both
Under-19 Boys and Girls sides at the conclusion of this year’s national weeks.
The CSA Annual National Weeks, which take place in December each year form a huge part of CSA’s development structures. The best players from the Under 19 weeks go on to receive national colours in four of the teams, namely, SA Schools (Boys/Girls), SA Colts, and SA Fillies.
Western Province’s Juan James has been named the South African Schools’ captain of 2022.
James is joined by teammates, Bongile Mfunelwa and Liyema Waqu in the SA Schools side.
Mfunelwa was also named Player of the Tournament for his efforts during the week.
Waqu, Nathan Jacobs (Boland), and Richard Seletswane (Lions) received the second SA Schools Caps. The trio also made the side last year. Lions’ Kwena Maphaka and Seletswane earned selection, with both youngsters having already represented the SA U19-side during the CSA T20 Knockout competition.
CSA Youth and Tertiary Cricket Manager, Niels Momberg, commented on the different weeks and congratulated the selected teams.
“This year has seen our national weeks return to normal after the disruptions of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It has been good to see that our pipeline continues to thrive despite the challenges faced in the last few years,” Momberg continued.
“As CSA, we try our outmost best to keep developing talent in the country and seeing that young talent at the national weeks is always something to look forward to.
“Congratulations to all the teams on your hard work, I wish you all the best in the holidays and we will see you all in new year.” Momberg concluded.
