Luthando Mnyanda (29) is an accomplished batting all-rounder on the verge of 200 domestic games across the three formats in South Africa. The talented right-handed batsman who bowls off-spin, has scored well over 5,000 runs and taken nearly 100 wickets, in a career spanning a decade.

Since his first-class debut for Border in February 2009, Mnyanda has scored 6 centuries including a highest score of 188 (in 2015/16), which superseded his prior career-best 175 scored two seasons earlier (2013/14). With the ball, he has taken 60 first class wickets including best bowling figures of 6-27. He has been particularly dominant in T20 cricket with 21 wickets at 21.71 all with an economy rate of 6.85.

During his illustrious career, he has featured for 7 domestic sides. After several seasons with Border (2008/09-11/12), he moved to South West Districts (2012/13-15/16) where he scored the majority of his first-class runs (2,021 runs at 28.87 with 4 centuries). In 2016/17 he played 3 matches for Free State before moving to current provincial side, Northern Cape, in 2017/18. In his prime, Mnyanda played 25 first-class Franchise games for the Knights (998 runs at 23.20) and a couple of matches for the Warriors.

He has become a regular for the Knights in recent years and is a key performer for his Northern Cape side. The talented all-rounder is now keen to make his mark in English club cricket over the next few seasons, so is seeking his maiden stint in 2019.
