Taking a cue from thousands of KFC Mini-Cricket kids who have found ways to continue to play their favourite game under lockdown, KFC is challenging them to share how they’ve turned their passages into pitches and stoeps into stadia, with Minier Cricket.


KFC Minier Cricket is all about substituting household items for traditional cricket gear – like rolling pins instead of bats, socks instead of balls and washing baskets instead of wickets – to keep the passion for cricket alive under lockdown. Josh Hendricks and his dad – Proteas player Beuran Hendricks – have led the way when it comes to finding innovative ways to play their favourite game, while staying safe at home. Hendricks alongside Rassie van der Dussen and Temba Bavuma, are sharing their Minier Cricket moments with South Africa whilst under national lockdown.

This initiative is KFC’s continued efforts to help promote children keeping active as means to help them develop as it forms part of learning and skills development. This will also help them navigate through everyday life, keep their energies up and give them an environment to improve other skills.

Cricket enthusiasts are encouraged to show their creativity and share their KFC Minier Cricket moments on social media and tag @KFCSA and using #minicricket to stand a chance to win epic KFC Mini-Cricket hampers.

There’s no reason to let staying at home interfere with your love of cricket – and plenty of opportunity to keep fit, stay active and work on your technique with KFC Mini’er Cricket.
