“I have worked so hard over the years for this op­por­tu­nity,” Bukho said.

His dad, Sx­eaks Nk­winti, who grew up play­ing the sport, ex­pressed his ex­cite­ment and how proud he was of his son’s achieve­ment.

“The ap­ple doesn’t fall far from the tree – my son takes after me,” he said. “I grew up play­ing the same sport. When I was in Grade 6 I used to play for Mid­lands and a team called Bor­der.

“That was back in 1976, so most of the time I train him. Cricket runs in the fam­ily genes.

“All that trav­el­ling up and down, go­ing to Port Eliz­a­beth and back for train­ing has fi­nally paid off.

“Spend­ing all that time in the cricket nets fol­low­ing a gru­elling train­ing pro­gramme is fi­nally reap­ing ben­e­fits.

“I am very proud of him and I feel very happy, the re­sults of all that hard work is fi­nally show­ing,” said Sx­eaks.

Bukho will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in a re­gional tour­na­ment in Klerks­dorp from De­cem­ber 10 to 14.

“I am very ex­cited about the tour­na­ment.

“I have been train­ing very hard for this op­por­tu­nity and I am very ready for the match – I am proud of my­self and con­fi­dent too,” said Bukho.

Sx­eaks is look­ing for spon­sors to help his son’s bud­ding cricket ca­reer.

Any­one who is in­ter­ested in mak­ing do­na­tions can con­tact Bukho on 064-614-1581 or his dad Sx­eaks on 082-459-1627 for more in­for­ma­tion.
