Muhammad Moosa and Sonqoba Makhanya were selected to represent the U17 Kingsmead Mynahs team at a tournament held in Durban. At their first game against the Crickets at Luther Field, Kloof on 29 November, a former Protea captain and past Kingsmead Mynahs player and captain, Shaun Pollock, related some stories of his experience with the Kingsmead Mynahs and other cricket stories, encouraged the boys and then presented them with their Mynahs Caps.
The team played six games, winning all of them. A more successful tournament cannot be recalled in the history of the Kingsmead Mynahs U17 school boys side. The batting, bowling and fielding was of a very high standard during the week.

A superb offie who gives it a rip. Took 22 wickets in six matches which we think is a Mynahs record. A more than useful lower order bat. An enthusiastic cricketer with a bright future. Was also awarded Bowler of the Tour.
An athletic seamer who bowled some good spells on tour. Unfortunately, most of the pitches were not seamer friendly.
