I have mentioned Jon Jon Smuts previously on here about Jon-Jon. I am sure his classmates will tell you he is destined for greater things, after breaking the school record for the amount of runs scored for the first team. To recap, Jon-Jon’s statistics include:
-played 80 matches for the Graeme College 1st team
-represented E.P. U18 team for 3 years i.e. 2004, 2005 and captain in 2006
-scored 4220 runs at an average of 57,8 runs per innings
-scored 14 centuries. His highest was 190 runs (see detail below)
-took 141 wickets at an average per wicket of 19.4 runs
Smuts, reached 150 today, his second hundred in the supersport series, which was curiosly curtailed by a declaration on 315/3 some 76 runs BEHIND the Eagles total. After this knock Jon-Jon should keep a regular place in the squad, however he has performed well in the lower tier the CSA provincial challenge this year.
Keep an eye on Jon-Jon and his younger brother Kelly Smuts
