There were a number of Jeppe boys in action, across various age groups (under-14 to u-17), at the SAICF and Action Sports interprovincial Indoor Cricket tournament inĀ Pietermaritzburg during the holidays.

The tournament doubled up as trials for the SA Indoor Cricket Federation to pick SA teams to participate in the World Cup, hosted by the World Indoor Cricket Federation in Dubai, in 2018. Three of the Jeppe players – Joshua Taylor, Connor Parsons and Breidyn Schaper – were included in the squad from which the 17 and under team will be chosen.

The three represented the country at 12 and under level inĀ 2012.

Joshua and Connor were part of the Eastern Gauteng team that won the under-16 final at the tournament. Breidyn was in the Central Gauteng team that was beaten by them.
