Cricket

Cricket has been offered at Midstream College since the school started in 2007. After two years of hard work and dedication the first team took to the field in 2009. Since then cricket has grown astronomically with seven fielded teams playing in the Northerns Cricket Union leagues.

During the third terms the teams play in the Northerns Cricket Union’s leagues. The first team started its journey in 2009 playing in the F-league, but since then they have done exceptionally well by progressing all the way to the B-league. The u/14A and u/15A teams currently also play in the B-league. We are confident that they will soon compete in the A-league. Midstream also plays in the Finsbury Series, which takes place in the first term. Here we have also been promoted from the E-league to the B-league, where we will play in 2020.

In 2015 Midstream College celebrated its first provincial player, Olebogeng Buffel, representing the Northerns Titans u/15 side. Olebogeng went on to represent the provincial u/17 team and u/19 sides in the following two years. In 2016 Nathan Jooste represented the Northerns Titans u/15 side. Jonathan Muller also represented the Northerns Titans u/15 in 2019. We are also very proud of Merrick Brett who represented the Northerns Titans u/17 team in 2018 and will represent the Northerns Titans u/19 team at the Coca-Cola Khaya Majola National Week in December 2019.

Very few schools have the facilities that Midstream College has, which include modern nets and four exceptional fields. We are also fortunate to have well-trained ground staff who prepare the fields and pitches. Furthermore our coaches are skilled and dedicated. We are in the privileged position that Pierre de Bruyn, the current Namibian national coach, runs our high performance programme, coaching our top players.
