The Cape Cobras have announced the signing of KwaZulu-Natal Inland wicketkeeper-batsman Mangaliso Mosehle on loan for the remainder of the One-Day Cup.
The 29-year-old has played for South Africa in seven T20Is and also has 123 List A matches under his belt and has had previous stints with the Lions and Titans.
He was also part of the Paarl Rocks team which won the 2019 Mzansi Super League.
Cobras assistant coach Faiek Davids believes that he will be a valuable signing for the Cape side ahead of three crucial games in the One-Day Cup.
‘With Kyle Verreynne being called into the Proteas team for this current Australia series and now the upcoming India series, we needed an experienced wicketkeeper and Mangi is one of the few very experienced guys around. I think it was a good call for us to get his services for the Cobras. He has international experience as well and we can use him in our top order and there’s no doubt that he is one of the best glovemen in the country, so he will be a real asset to the team and we welcome him to our set-up,’ said Davids.
Mosehle is looking forward to the challenge that lies ahead.
‘I never thought I’d be here at Newlands, it’s a fantastic ground and the Cobras are a wonderful team to be playing for. I was very grateful to receive the call and I’m looking forward to the next few games and hopefully being able to contribute to winning causes for the coach and the team,’ he added.
