Thamsanqa Lungile Tsolekile

Thami had a brief run as Test match wicketkeeper for the Proteas Castle Lager squad when he played three matches against India and England during the 2004/05 season on the only occasion that Mark Boucher was dropped.

Since then he has been the top gloveman in South African domestic cricket and was selected for the Test squad for the 2012 tours to England and Australia as the back-up to AB de Villiers following the retirement of Boucher.

He has made more than 450 first-class dismissals including a South African record of eight dismissals in an innings for South Africa A against Sri Lanka A during the 2011/12 season. He is also a reliable lower order batsman with five first-class centuries and 5 000 first-class career runs to his credit at an average of 30.
