The Knights have been promoted to division one ahead of South Africa’s 2024-25 domestic season.

The Knights were relegated to division two in 2023. KwaZulu Natal Inland replaced them in division one – and will be relegated to division two later this year.

“The Knights have shown incredible determination and skill in reaching this milestone. Their promotion to division one is a testament to their hard work and the high standards they set for themselves,” said Knights chief executive officer Johan van Heerden.

“Relegation was a tough experience, but it served as a learning opportunity for the team. They adapted their approach and built a stronger, more cohesive unit as a result.

“Our main goal is to establish the Knights as a competitive force in division one. We are focused on developing our players and investing in talent to ensure we remain at the highest level.

“We are confident in the Knights’ abilities, and we will continue to support them in their journey to success in division one as we believe they will thrive in this new chapter.”

Their promotion reaffirms the strength and depth of talent within our cricketing community.

“We wish them all the best as they prepare to compete in division one, carrying with them the hopes and aspirations of their fans and supporters, ready to write the next chapter in their cricketing journey.”
