As we approach the final round of games for the season, all the Wanderers senior cricket teams find themselves in the top half of their respective leagues.
Team of the Season is undoubtedly the Saturday 4 side, which is on the brink of winning the league is its first year – a team that didn’t exist last season as it was born out our Sunday 5th team that we so often struggled to fill.
Under the astute (and passionate) leadership of Thabo Kalabatane the team is now it is a true stepping stone from Junior to Senior Cricket – indeed some of the players play for Wanderers U13’s in the morning and SA4 in the afternoon.
With a convincing win over relegation rivals Pirates, the Premier League team have ensured that they will be in the Premier League A section next season.
With a number of players moving on at the end of the season, the club will spend much of the off season looking to rebuild the team.
Final league positions will be in next month’s newsletter.
