Kei cricket team were a South African first-class cricket team based in the Eastern Cape city of Mthatha.

When Cricket South Africa decided to expand the Provincial Three-Day Challenge in 2006, Kei were one of five provincial teams (along with KwaZulu-Natal Inland, Limpopo, Mpumalanga and South Western Districts) elevated to first-class status.

Kei played seven first-class matches in the 2006-07 season, losing them all by large margins, five of them by an innings. They also lost all six of their matches in the Provincial One-Day Challenge by large margins. None of their matches were played on their home ground in Mthatha.

Their most successful batsman in the first-class matches was Sivuyile Duda,[1] who scored 265 runs at an average of 18.92 including the team's only century, 102 against KwaZulu-Natal Inland.[2] Keeping wicket, Duda also made four catches and a stumping in that match, and finished the season with 12 catches and two stumpings. He played one match for KwaZulu-Natal Inland in 2007-08.

In a competition that was itself of borderline first-class status, Cricket South Africa considered Kei's performance (and those of Limpopo and Mpumalanga) too weak to justify their place, and after one season, all three teams were omitted.[3] They have played no further first-class cricket.

Lists of players[edit]
