The VKB Knights will be back in action in October, when they start off with the 4-day domestic series. On Monday, October 7th they will go up against the Warriors at the Diamond Oval in Kimberley. The Free State side is currently busy with pre-season preparations in Bloemfontein.

Earlier in 2019, the Knights finished off 4th in the last 4-day series that started in September 2018, a poor performance compared to previous years.

Knights’ bowler Shadely van Schalkwyk weighs in on their last 4–day series.

The 30-year-old from Cape Town looks into some of the lessons they have learnt from their last 4-day.

Van Schalkwyk has been with the Free State Union side for 10 years.

Van Schalkwyk is a product of the famous Wynberg Boys’ High School in the Mother City. He is looking forward to seeing what head coach Allan Kruger brings to the side.

Kruger was the assistant coach to Nicky Boje before taking the head coach role a couple of months back. Report by Tshenolo Meruti
