Off to the World Cup

Hudson Park High pupils Akhona Mnyaka and Jason Niemand were selected to represent SA U19 side for the World Cup in New Zealand from January 13 to February 4. The Hudson pair will be joined by fellow-East Londoner, Thando Ntini, ex-Selborne College pupil and son of SA test cricket legend, Makhaya Ntini. All three boys recently played in the triangular series with England and Namibia that South Africa won. Niemand was man-of-the match in the final against England, with bowling figures of 3/52, but it was his heroics with the bat, scoring 60 runs off 53 balls, when his team was in trouble, that made sure of the award for the 19-year-old Picture: SUPPLIED
