Sun Valley Primary cricket boys return from India

Sun Valley Primary School boys Giyan Sulcas, Benjamin Hansen and Kei Lalor in India.

Three Sun Valley Primary School boys, Giyan Sulcas, Benjamin Hansen, and Kei Lalor, have just returned from the trip of a lifetime to play cricket in a major tournament in India.
They were part of a Western Cape contingent invited in December 2016 to don the green and gold after Giyan Sulcas was named the most valuable player, as captain of the Western Province under-11 Pups team, and Benjamin and Kei had stand-out performances at the Pitseng Feedem Cup tournament in Worcester.

There were 13 boys on this under-12 team from South Africa, with the “valley boys” achieving highest honours.
Giyan Sulcas, an opening batsman/all-rounder, finished the tournament at the top of the batting averages with an average of 70.0, that included an undefeated innings of a milestone 54 not out off 50 balls, for which he was awarded man of the match by the tournament organisers.

Benjamin, a wicketkeeper-batsman, was awarded most promising under-12 player.

Kei, an opening bowler, was recognised for his accurate and economical seam bowling, on some difficult Indian tracks, which significantly contributed to the team’s success
