Club Cricket SA Player of the Week: Lenert van Wyk

Lenert van Wyk Club Cricket SA Player of the Week

Bellville Cricket Club’s Lenert van Wyk has secured the penultimate Club Cricket SA Player of the Week award for the year.

Van Wyk struck a masterful century in Saturday, 9 December 2017’s key Western Province Cricket Association premier league fixture against Rondebosch Cricket Club.

The talented right-hander’s superb 145, which spanned a mere 130 deliveries and featured 13 fours and seven sixes, earned the hosts a formidable first-innings lead over a visiting XI sporting the services of Cape Cobras batsman Andrew Puttick.

The 28-year-old van Wyk was well supported by middle-order half-centurion Handre Theron during a sterling 123-run partnership for the fifth wicket.

They were particularly fruitful against a Rondebosch Cricket Club attack serviced by just four bowlers, one of which delivered a mere six overs. Leg-spinner Alistair Gray, characteristically, bowled more than a third of the 60 overs.

Van Wyk narrowly beat Edgemead Cricket Club’s Simon Blake to this week’s accolade. Blake completed telling first-innings figures of seven for 26 in the WPCA first division A against Avendale Cricket Club.
