Wynberg Old Boys’ Union is proud to welcome former Proteas player and international cricketing legend, Makhaya Ntini, as our on-the-spot guest on Wednesday 16 May 2018 at 19h00 at the Bill Bowden Pavilion, Home of Wynberg Old Boys. As always, our Open Mic evenings are open to all, but we regret no school-goers & U18s.
STOP PRESS: MAKHAYA NTINI WILL BE JOINED BY SPECIAL GUEST, ASHWELL PRINCE
One of the leading wicket-takers in SA cricketing history, Makhaya will enjoy a frank exchange with Master of Ceremonies, Old Boy Brad Bing, about his extraordinary journey:
Makhaya’s cricket talent was discovered early when he worked as a herd boy in rural Transkei, although unable to speak English, he was awarded a bursary to Dale College, from where his passion and undisputed talent for the game saw him explode onto provincial and international ovals.
Makhaya’s professional career took him to top international bowling status in one of the most turbulently exciting and interesting eras of South African Cricket. After his retirement in 2011, Makhaya coached cricket in Zimbabwe and continues a close involvement in the sport today.
With our Special Guest and MC both proud fathers of current Wynberg Boys’ High School cricketers, Open Mic fans can expect an evening of off-the-record questions, not just about the past, but about the future of SA cricket.
Makhaya has promised to bring a mystery former team-mate with him to spice up the evening – do not miss this opportunity to meet and ask questions of a cricketing legend.
