Makhaya Ntini is set to open a cricket academy in Mdantsane, East London. The South African fast bowler hopes to unearth talented black youngsters to follow in his footsteps and become international cricket stars.
Cricket has no shortage of support among young SA fans, according to a new survey. It's the only sport to feature in the top three most popular among South Africans aged 13 to 18 across all race groups. And bowler Makhaya Ntini is a massive hit.
Jacques Kallis and Makhaya Ntini were honoured as two of SA's five cricketers of the year for a record-equalling fourth time at the launch of the 2005 South African Cricket Annual. Andre Nel was recognised for a second time, while AB de Villiers and Boeta Dippenaar were honoured for the first time.
