TEAMS

A tall left-arm swing bowler, Tsotsobe, made an immediate impression in his first season for Eastern Province, taking 16 wickets at 17.75 in 2004-05. However, it wasn't until he moved to Warriors in 2006-07 that his obvious ability bore fruit. Three five-wicket hauls and his first ten-for in a match were followed by 49 wickets at 23.59 the next year. There were concerns, however, that his fitness and stamina would prevent international recognition, and in addition his pace; a medium-pacer, he is certainly not in the Brett Schultz league. Nevertheless, another encouraging start to his 2008-09 season (28 wickets in six matches) earned him a call-up to South Africa's squad to tour Australia. He impressed in his debut ODI, taking 4 for 50 and that was good enough to earn him a central contract. With Wayne Parnell injured, Tsotsobe was taken on South Africa's tour of the Caribbean in 2010 as a left-arm option, and admirable returns in the one-day leg lead to a Test debut at Port of Spain
