The on-form player who only dropped one game in this event says that everything went well.
The Northerns were declared the best of U-16A province after winning the 2019 ITP by 158 points out of 160.
The 14-year-old Malinga described the tournament as a success.
After Wednesday’s tournament, Malinga will take a well-deserved break ahead of the forthcoming national championships set to take place on the 23 – 29 of June in Pretoria. – Report by Sinovuyo Ndudane
