“We entered a sixth XI into the WPCA for the 2022-23 season. This is the first time we have done this,” said Wynberg Cricket Club life member Craig Young.

“The sixth XI is generally made up of four or five senior players, with the rest being under-14 players. Donavon committed himself to this team from the beginning as he wanted to assist with the nurturing of these youngsters.”

What Koen said

Koen added: “I’m not one to harp on individual achievements, but this is one that I am very proud of. What a great club Wynberg Cricket Club is to reach this milestone with. Truly blessed to still be able to play this game.”
