Julia Fish: The Albany triangle is kind of known for its spiky fruit. It does help that a town just down the road has erected a giant homage to the juicy yellow produce. Though if your first thought when hearing the word pineapple is cricket, you are one of the lucky few to have been introduced to one of the most entertaining weeks the district has to offer.

The annual farmer’s league cricket tournament, called Pineapple Week, celebrated its 110th edition this year. Rhodes has three sides lucky enough to compete- the Rhodent’s, the Rats and the Shrews. All teams travel to Port Alfred and play on pitches around the town, with most of the Rhodes squad’s games taking place at the local Port Alfred School.

MICHAEL REINDERS: “Players like him are born once in a lifetime.” This is how former Indian cricketer and national coach Anshuman Gaekwad describes Sachin Tendulkar. Tendulkar, who is known as “the little master”, has announced his retirement from international cricket after a 24-year-long career for India.

Tendulkar began his career as an international cricketer at the age of 16 in 1989. Since then, he has gone on to become one of the greatest batsmen, if not one of the greatest cricketers, of his generation, as Jonathan Agnew, English cricket broadcaster and former cricketer, has stated.
