Written by: Lengwadishang Ramphele

Former Proteas players will be lending their skills to coaching clinics for new and developing talent at this weekend’s Sasfin Cape Town Cricket Sixes.

Cricket legends Allan Donald, Brett Schultz and Meyrick Pringle will give their time and expertise to workshop upcoming cricketers.

Ryan Christian, founder of Hit Poverty for a Six speaks to CapeTalk's Pippa Hudson about what is to be expected at this workshop.

I think it is important that everybody contributes.
