The KZN Coastal U17 cricket team for the Momentum U17 Week in Durban from December 11 to 15 has been named today.
The team will be captained by Jordan Bamber of Kearsney College with Bryden Sambhu of DHS vice-captain.

The 13-man squad is made up of 2 Kearsney cricketers, 4 Glenwood, 1 DHS, 2 Northwood, 3 Westville and one from Thomas More College.
The team has a host of players who have shown good form, not least of whom is Northwood all-rounder Jeremy Martins who played a match-winning role in the 64-run first XI win by the Knights of Durban North over Maritzburg College on Goldstones last month.
Coming in to bat at number 6 with the Northwood total four wickets down for next to nothing and then 47 for 5 it was Martins who compiled a mature century under considerable pressure to set up the Knights’ memorable victory.
Should the KZN Coastal U17 team play with that sort of grit it bodes well for the Durban-based province’s fortunes at the national week in their hometown come mid-December.
