Profile

A product of the storied Soweto Cricket Club, Geoffrey Toyana was a prolific left-hander whose pull shot became the stuff of legend. He was classed as a development player which had benefits such as the opportunity to work on the MCC groundstaff in 1995 and drawbacks like the stigma surrounding being placed in that category. He played for Gauteng for several seasons with an average in the upper-20s, but only blossomed after moving to Easterns.
