South Africa has fared well against International opposition at Under 19 level. In 2008, the team made the final of the ICC Under 19 World Cup in Malaysia, eventually going down to India. To date, various Proteas stars have come through the SA Under 19 structures including speedster, Wayne Parnell, batting sensations, AB de Villiers and Vaughn van Jaarsveld. The sponsor has naming rights to the SA Under 19 team during all tours, except ICC events. The SA Under 19 team is due to visit England later this year.
The Coca-Cola Khaya Majola U19 week is the tournament that all young cricketers dream of taking part in. This is where the country’s future stars show the skills they have learned over all the years of playing schools cricket. The top provinces take part and the competition is extremely tough with a strength vs strength format. If you perform exceptionally well here, there is the possibility of being selected for the SA Schools side or the Schools Colts team.
The top performers in those chosen teams also stand a good chance of being chosen for the SA U19 squad and from there on your cricket career can only go on to bigger things.
