Cricket


16 January 2022
The Bishops' 1st XI and 15A cricket sides represented the school at the 20-team Peninsula Cricket Festival (PCF), staged in Cape Town, between the 11th and 15th January 2022. The PCF is arguably the most prestigious schoolboy cricket festival in the country and, it is an undoubted feather in the school's cap that both sides returned perfect - and highly-impressive - five-from-five win ratios and a combined total of 10 victories from a possible 10. The 1st XI registered wins v St Charles' College (declaration); Waterkloof (declaration); Pretoria Boys' (50 overs); Affies (50 overs) and Hilton (T20). The 15As followed suit with consecutive victories, in the same formats, against St Charles' College; Waterkloof; Grey College; Affies and Hilton. Special mention to Kashief Joseph (1st XI) for scoring 113 v St Charles' College; Storm Matthews (1st XI) for taking 6-61 v Waterkloof and to Fayyaad Domingo (1st XI) for all-round and consistent excellence during the festival in the form of a combined 183 runs and 12 wickets. Adnaan Lagadien (15A) deserves praise, too, for scoring 207 runs in four innings at an average of 51.75.
