Reeza Hendriks scored 154 overs helping South Africa with an overall lead of 140 before they were bowled out in their first innings today against their Bangladesh counterparts at Sedgars Park, Potchefstroom.
Yesterday Hendriks and Jonathan Vandiar both scored superb centuries to put South Africa under 19 in control over their three day match.
“Bangladesh made 294 on the first day with South African’s supplied with 393 by the close leading with 99 runs,” says Cricket South Africa’s Michael-Owen Smith.
18 year-old Hendriks and 17-year-old Vandiar have been playing first class cricket in the SA Airways amateur competition for Griquas for more than a year and has an aggregate of more than 500 runs at that level.
The match is a forerunner to the triangular under-19 series, which involves India and starts at Sinovich Park, Pretoria 1st January 2008.
