Former Proteas batsman Dale Benkenstein played club cricket last week.

Benkenstein played for DB Academy in the KwaZulu-Natal Inland Cricket Union premier league.

He struck a half-century during a key fixture against Masibemunye Cricket Club.

“Benkenstein’s academy is in the premier league for this season only, as a replacement for a team that withdrew,” a KwaZulu-Natal Inland Cricket Union representative told Club Cricket SA.

Benkenstein played 23 ODIs between 1998 and 2002. He was the Proteas’ batting coach during the 2019 World Cup.
