At the close of the 2018 school year, KZN10.com asked St Charles College head of sport Rowan Irons four quick questions on Saints cricket.

1. Row, you have a passionate interest in St Charles College cricket. What was the highlight of the 2018 year?
2. Row, in what areas is Saints cricket looking to improve on in 2019?
3. Row, there were some remarkable Saints first XI wins in 2018 and also several close-run matches where Saints were well on course for victory only to see triumph slip from their grasp in the final session. Could the inconsistencies be chalked up to inexperience?
4. Saints cricket, how does St Charles College stack up against some of the bigger schools?
Thanks for your time, Row, I have found the chat to be enlightening, as it just goes to show that as passionate as us KZN10 cricket fans are, very few – if any – of us understand and appreciate the inner workings of developing a sport in an ever-changing school sport landscape.
