Grey Fest 2020Some of South Africa’s top cricket playing schools will attend the annual Grey Cricket Festival hosted by Grey College in Bloemfontein from Thursday. Grey College hosts the festival on a bi-annual basis with Grey High School also hosting it every other year.

The hosts will face three of the top KwaZulu-Natal cricket schools during the festival. They will play St Charles College, Northwood and Durban High School in three of their four matches during the festival.

Grey College’s opening match will be against Selborne College of East London. The hosts will play all four their matches at the Johan Volsteedt Oval. All four these matches will be live-streamed by Grey TV on DigiTV.co.za.

Grey High School of Port Elizabeth has a team with a lot of potential and will face St Andrews of Bloemfontein in their opening match. The team from the Windy City will also face Durban High School, Affies and Maritzburg College in their other three matches.

George van Heerden and Joshua Stephenson will lead the team’s bowling attack. Van Heerden also scored a century at Cricket South Africa’s Cubs Week in Stellenbosch on Tuesday.

St Stithians College and King Edward VII of Johannesburg have been two of the top school sides from the City of Gold for a couple of years now.

Matches start daily from 09:00.
