Kamvalethu Feni (right) from Imizama Yethu Secondary School in Thembalethu and Ayabonga Ngondo (left) from Fezekile Secondary School in Bonngolethu, two of SWD’s promising schoolboy players, were included in the Cobras Cubs team for the annual Cricket South Africa franchise cubs week that will be hosted in Stellenbosch during January 2021.
Normally the franchise cubs’ teams get selected after the Khaya Majola national weeks in December but this year no national weeks are held due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The team selection process was therefore abnormal but both Feni and Ngondo deserve this opportunity to showcase their talent at a high level.
The full team is as follows: Daniel Smith (W.P.), Ethan Cunningham (W.P.), Kai Curran (W.P.), Siyambonga Nyawose (W.P.), Dewald Grove (Boland), Kamvalethu Feni (S.W.D.), Michael Levitt (W.P.), Nicholas Kevy (Boland), Kaden Solomon (W.P.), Nathan Jacobs (Boland), Darian Naidoo (W.P.), Ayabonga Ngondo (S.W.D.), Salman Ajam (W.P.), Ashake Tsaka (W.P.). The team manager is Graham October and the coach is Gurshwin Rabie.
