Exciting matchups for 2024 Peninsula Cricket Festival

By Willem Louw , in Cricket | News , at 2023-11-29 Tags:

Cape Town is braced for another exhilarating instalment of the Peninsula Cricket Festival early in 2024, featuring 10 of the nation’s cricketing powerhouses kick-starting the new season in the southern suburbs.

Diocesan College takes the lead in orchestrating the event, which is sponsored by Old Mutual and Loughborough University, alongside their local rivals’ Rondebosch Boys’ High, Wynberg Boys’ High, and SACS.

Those four schools make up the majority of Western Province’s provincial teams and have established themselves as intimidating challengers, which they underlined at the Cape Schools Cricket Week in late September/early October, where Bishops, Rondebosch and SACS compiled perfect records.

They are joined by a formidable lineup of visiting teams, with KZN’s Hilton College and St Charles College, Johannesburg’s St David’s Marist Inanda, and Pretoria’s Waterkloof, Affies, and Pretoria Boys High all making their way to the Western Cape for five days of pulsating action.

The matches begin on the 9th of January, with Bishops taking on Hilton College in a declaration match. They face St David’s next before tackling Northerns’ powerhouses, Affies and Waterkloof, in their two 50-over matches before taking on Pretoria Boys High for the final T20.

Bishops will be especially eager to avenge a 46-run loss to Klofies, the only blemish on their record, at the 2023 festival.

Rondebosch were the only unbeaten team at this year’s festival. With their rich history of cricketing excellence, and following an outstanding 2023, they’ll go into the event carrying the weight of expectations. Their youthful, talented squad, which remains largely unchanged for the forthcoming season, positions Bosch as one of the teams to beat.

Raeeq Daniels steps into the role of Rondebosch’s 1st XI captain for 2024. His leadership will be put to the test against formidable adversaries in the form of St David’s, Waterkloof, Pretoria Boys High, Hilton, and St Charles, as the local side strives to build on the triumphs of the past season.

The participants all sport established records of cricketing success and the event offers up an early opportunity to assess those schools’ classes of 2024, some of which will, undoubtedly, rank among the best in South Africa.
