The end of the summer cricket season has arrived. Here are the South African high schools who made the top of the schools cricket rankings.
Everyone who knows anything about school sports knows how hard it is to rank schools, and how controversial it could be. But it you want to rank schools, ask SA School Sports who are always up for the challenge. They base their weekly and seasonal rankings on many metrics, which you can read about on their website.
This year's rankings look quite a bit different to last year's, as new boys enter the school and matrics leave. So here it is:
