The Swaziland Under-17s travel to South Africa today for two matches, on Saturday and Sunday.

Swaziland Cricket Association (SCA) Chief Coach Sohail Khan, who is also the National Under 17 squad's Head Coach said he was confident that the team would raise the country's flag sky high in these friendly games. Khan has also been appointed by the SCA executive to accompany the team which is expected back home next Monday.

"We had enough time for preparations. I'm optimistic that we will do well and win. The players have been co-operative and supportive during our training sessions. They are all in good shape and were committed in all the exercises they have been engaged in," he said. He added that the squad will today converge at 12p.m at the Sizzlers Restuarant in Mbabane. The Under 17 team is made up of James Megenn (Captain), Harris Rashid (Vice Captain), John, Lutfo Dlamini, Brendan Linsey, Stephen Nodder, Thetho Sengwayo, Jason Weeve, Mangaliso, Adib Miri, Patrick Stewart, Shoaib Ahmed and Simon Bycott.
