The Northerns cricket team is a first-class team that has been playing in South Africa since 1937. The Northerns are now part of the Titans, so the best players from the Northerns roster can earn a place in this giant. We will tell you more about the team, its history, victories and current roster.
History and achievements of the Northerns cricket team
This team was founded in December 1937 and was then called the North Eastern Transvaal. In April 1971, the name changed to Northern Transvaal, and then, in 1997, to the current one. It was due to the renaming of the province of Transvaal.
The Northerns became part of the Team Titans in October 2004, a northern top-level cricket franchise.
The Northerns plays home matches at Centurion Park Stadium, located in the province of Gauteng. The capacity of this stadium is 22,000 spectators. The Titans team also plays here.
Northern competes in the Premier Cricket, Day One and List A Cricket Championships.
- In the 4-Day Domestic Series (first class), the team could not take a single title but played in the final three times (1984 – 85, 1994 – 95, 2001 – 02)
- In the Momentum One Day Cup (one day cricket) thr Northern also failed to win the title at the moment.
