Profile

Few people in South African cricket doubt that off-spinner Thandi Tshabalala has what it takes to perform at international level. But there is a diverse array of opinions when it comes to just when the black Free Stater will be properly ready for the step up. Tshabalala had his first national call-up in February 2006 when he was named in the squad for the Twenty20 international against Australia. He eventually did not play, but was chosen for the tour to Sri Lanka in July before finally making his ODI debut against Ireland in Stormont in June 2007.
