This weekend, Sunday 24th of January, the JIVE Super8 Cricket Tournament in Cape Town, South Africa will commence.

The excitement is mounting in the Cape Indian community as an IPL format cricket competition is set to get underway. The aim of the event, organisers say, is to celebrate the Indian culture through a past time which is well loved by most Indians – cricket. The event see eight teams put their cricket skills to the test, each being made up of players representing a specific ‘gao’ or village from which their forefathers – who came to settle in the Cape during the 18th and 19th centuries – originate from.

the tournament criterion will be the subject of intense legal analyses in the equality court of the republic of south africa,as myself and other progressive people view this a sectarian and racist.

basically the teams invited to this tournament(eight particular villages),its members had to trace their lineage patrilineally to that particular village in india.

so if a kokni woman had married a non kokni,the children were not eligible for this tournament.

Yes, understand this tournament had a few intense discussions. But it was a pilot project managed by the Kokni community/businessmen in Cape Town. Heard rules will change next year, let’s see.

Keep well
