Robin Peterson scouts for future cricketing heroes

Coca-Cola South Africa has added extra shine to the Coca-Cola KhayaMajola Cricket week by announcing former Proteas superstar, Robin Peterson as the face of the Coca-Cola® Hero of the Day.

Peterson, who is himself a hero of South Africa cricket, led a panel of experts tasked with selecting the coveted Coca-Cola® Hero of the Day award winners at this year’s Coca-Cola® KhayaMajola Week.

Robin Peterson said, “Having played in the Coca-Cola® KhayaMajola Week myself, I can testify that this tournament is a significant stepping stone in the career of a young cricketer.”

The Coca-Cola® Hero of the Day is not necessarily your typical man of the match award.  He is the wicketkeeper who made an amazing dive catch, a tail-ender who smashed a reverse sweep for six to win the match or even the player showing sportsmanship and embodying the spirit of the gentleman’s game

It’s moments such as these that Robin and his team, made up of some of the foremost cricket experts in South Africa, including key members of the national sporting and school sports media, will be looking out for and rewarding.

FetsiMbele, senior communications manager said, “The Coca-Cola® KhayaMajola Cricket Week is without doubt, the primary platform for identifying the future heroes of South African cricket. It is therefore fitting to appoint an established hero, who is also a graduate of the tournament, to scout our future stars.”

Mbele added, “At Coca-Cola we are immensely proud to continue our support of the development of youth cricket in South Africa through the Coca-Cola® KhayaMajola Week and the Coca-Cola® T20 Schools Challenge. We can’t wait to have Robin add an extra level of expertise to our Coca-Cola hero of the Day judging process.”
