Fast bowler Thando Ntini will play for the Titans, not the Cape Cobras, during the 2020-21 season.
Ntini debuted for the Cobras in October 2019. He took the most wickets for the franchise in the recent One-Day Cup, which was cancelled prior to the semi-finals as a preventative measure against the coronavirus pandemic.
The Cobras hadn’t qualified for the semi-finals despite the success of the 19-year-old, who is the son of former Proteas fast bowler Makhaya Ntini.
Ntini was also part of the Paarl Rocks’ squad during the 2019 Mzansi Super League. The Rocks won the title, while the Tshwane Spartans finished runners-up.
‘Thank you so much for this lovely opportunity, it’s a dream come true,” Ntini said on Instagram at the time.
‘I would like to dedicate this special moment to my family, coaches, close friends and all the people at Western Province for making me the person and cricketer I am today. The journey only gets better from here.’
