Cricket Report 2017
2017 was an amazing year for Die Wilge on the Cricket field. The boys played this gentleman’s game with great pride and enjoyment. There were some great success stories throughout the year. New sponsors also jumped on board, and we would like to thank JLC Securitech for choosing and believing in us. We are more than grateful for your help and contributions.

SA LSEN CRICKET WEEK 2017 – East London

It brings me great honour to supply you with feedback of the Cricket Week that took place during the past school holiday.

Die Wilge had 5 players and 2 educators in the North West Dragons team for 2017:

Ramolatudi Lubby, Zolile Nyatela, Kurtley Jones, Bathabile Masigo and Tshepo Moswetsi were selected for the team. Mr. LP Geyer was the Chairperson and coach and Mr. RL Prinsloo was the Secretary.

We encountered different seasons in one day in East London, with heavy downfalls and rain over the week. This meant that we only played T20 cricket. This format was not at all our strength, as we taught the boys throughout the season not to play aggressive cricket. The results would have been even better if we could have played 50 over cricket, but that was circumstances out of our hands.

In summary, North West won 3 out of the 4 games played during the week. We convincingly won against SWD, Mpumalanga Titans and the Free State, but unfortunately lost against the Easterns. These good results made North West the Runners-Up for the Golden League.

North West Dragons vs SWD Dragons won with 5 wickets;
North West Dragons vs Easterns Dragons lost with 46 runs;
North West Dragons vs Mpumalanga Dragons won with 8 wickets;
North West Dragons vs Free State Dragons won with 43 runs.

The players that won the Man of the Match rewards in the 3 games was:

- Bathabile Masigo (Die Wilge) against SWD, and
- Zolile Nyatela(Die Wilge) against Mpumalanga Titans and the Free State.

The award for the Best bowler of the Week went to Bathabile Masigo, with bowling figures of 15.2 overs, 10 wickets and conceding only 61 runs.

One of our players received 3 years’ participation award:

- Ramolatudi Lubby

Die Wilge made new history in 2017, with 2 players being chosen to be part of the SA LSEN u/19 TEAM.
- Zolile Nyatela – 2nd year in the SA Team)
- Bathabile Masigo – This is a remarkable achievement as this boy is only 13 year old.

Ramolatudi Lubby will be on standby if anyone from the 13 players of the SA LSEN TEAM u/19 are unable to attend the u/17 Rural Cricket Week in White River in December.

This in summary means that Die Wilge has 3 out of the possible 14 SA LSEN players in the National Team.

This is a remarkable achievement and we apprize the selectors in believing and recognising the talent that was brought forward by the North West Cricket LSEN and Die Wilge High School.

In conclusion, we would like to thank every player and educator for their dedication and willingness to participate. Thank you for making 2017 yet another memorable year for Die Wilge Cricket. We would also like to thank the principle, Mr. AB Rudd, the administrative staff and the Hostel staff for your assistance and support. We couldn’t have done it without you.
