Armad Pansegrouw is a hero at Coca-Cola® T20 Schools Cricket Challenge
Opening batsman, Armad Pansegrouw of Pietersburg High School, Polokwane, has been recognised as an outstanding achiever in the Coca-Cola® T20 School Challenge, for the 92 runs he made in his side’s victory over Seshego Development School.
Coca-Cola® South Africa and Cricket South Africa (CSA) grant this honour to players who excel in the competition and they are awarded a special commemorative cap and a certificate marking the occasion.
Armad, who also excels in hockey and athletics, is only 16 years old and now in Grade 11. He has been described by cricket organiser, Linki Roodt as a steady and reliable batsman who is of great value to the team. “Armad is passionate about cricket and never misses a practice session, which is turning him into an excellent cricketer who should go far in the sport.”
Pieterburg High School has played four Coca-Cola® T20 School Challenge matches, winning two. They beat Seshego Development by 146 runs and Capricorn High School by 9 wickets. They still have a couple of games to play in their region before competing in the Regional finals.
The Coca-Cola® T20 Schools Challenge is about making heroes, explains Fetsi Mbele, Coca-Cola South Africa Marketing Assets Manager. “This grass roots tournament is where heroes are unearthed and then progress through to the Coca-Cola® Khaya Majola Cricket Week, an annual tournament, sponsored by Coca-Cola South Africa for over 30 years. It has to date produced over 200 Proteas players.”
