The new season starts in earnest in the first week of October. We are all hopeful that there will be a full season, for the first time since 2018/19. We have two new teams and can cater for cricketers of all ages and abilities, men, and women.

Practices are in full swing on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and we welcome any newcomers.

Congratulations to long-standing Wanderers Club member, Dom Hendricks, on his appointment as captain of the Lions for the 4 day and 50 over competitions.

After a break of a year because of Covid, the Wanderers hosted the Women’s T10 tournament. 12 teams battled it out over 3 days, with Soweto CC coming out as the eventual winners.

Well done to Maddy Wolmarans and the team for hosting a successful event over the long weekend in glorious weather.

Cricket Section Annual General Meeting 2021

On 2nd September 2021, the cricket section held a well-attended and successful AGM.

The Chairman, Frank Auger, remarked that the previous year had been a very difficult one for everyone. However, the cricket club had shown great resilience and we were one of the few sub clubs that had grown its membership during the past year.

The Chairman referred to the preamble of the MCC Laws of Cricket;

“Cricket is an exciting game that encourages leadership, friendship, and teamwork, which brings together people from different nationalities, cultures and religions, especially when played within the Spirit of Cricket.”

With all that is going on with the game in the country, the Chairman requested that the members remember why they play the game. For enjoyment, camaraderie, and all that the spirit of the cricket embodies.

The meeting re-elected the existing committee members and added Maddy Wolmarans to represent women’s cricket.
