Marcia Letsoalo fell in love with cricket when watching the South Africa men play on TV. She kept her passion hidden for a while as she had never seen women play the game, but eventually was unable to help herself and ended up learning how to bowl on the streets of Phalaborwa, her home town.
After some impressive performances for Northerns she broke into the national side in 2007. She looks up hugely to Jacques Kallis for his measured approach to the game, but her favourite bowler in Makhaya Ntini and she is convinced that if she works hard she can match his career path.
Although she went wicketless on both her Test and ODI debuts, she has demonstrated the necessary skill and work ethic to be around the squad for some time. When she is not playing she coaches the Under-13 team at Atteridgeville Cricket Club, passing on her love of the sport to youngsters.

Some of the reactions on Twitter to Virat Kohli's record-equalling hundred during India's chase in Pune
In the past week, we have seen two shots that left us awestruck: Virat Kohli's jab that sailed over midwicket and Najibullah Zadran's six over the extra-cover boundary despite slipping in the process. Will either of the two top this compilation?
Stats highlights from the first ODI between India and England in Pune
Some of India's finest wins have come with Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni in harness at the crease. At Cuttack they rolled back the years to extraordinary effect
The Twitter world rose up to applaud Yuvraj Singh's hundred, in his second game since being recalled to India's ODI squad
Currently, Ajinkya Rahane doesn't quite have the body of work in ODIs that merit his inclusion. What can he do to press for selection in the Champions Trophy?
His Test stats as batsman and bowler compare favourably with some of the best allrounders, which is why his second-innings dismissal in Wellington is all the more puzzling
The shot Shakib Al Hasan played to be dismissed on day five at Basin Reserve defies explanation. It also prompts a few questions
As batting and bowling in ODIs takes on more of the attacking virtues of T20 cricket, where does the format stand as a product of its own?
