Eastern Cape Gets New Cricket Academy
Former Protea cricket legend Makhaya Ntini officially opened the Makhaya Ntini Academy in Mdantsane, outside East London, on Tuesday.
The Mdingi Express, as he is known, said the opening of the Academy is a dream come true.
“I’ve long dreamt of having a School of Excellence,” Ntini said.
Every second Friday Ntini will run cricket clinics in an attempt to unearth the talent he is aware is available within the Eastern Cape, ready to be tapped and nurtured.
“We call these Fun Fridays,” he said.
“Someone has to go out there, visit the schools and find the talent which I know is out there.
“And that someone is me. I will go out there and look for that talent.
