Luvuyo Nkese is an exciting prospect coming through the Titans ranks in South Africa.

Recommended by former Lions, and Northerns coach, Geoffrey Toyana, Nkese has progressed through the Northerns and Titans age groups and is now making his way in the professional game.

To date, Nkese has played 47 domestic matches for Northerns, although surprisingly, only 12 in the CSA Provincial 3-Day Competition since his debut in October 2017.

In these 12 matches, he has taken 22 wickets at 30.31, with best match figures of 6-67. However, it's in the white-ball formats where Nkese has really made an impression, cementing his Northerns spot in both List A and T20 cricket.

To date, Nkese has played 24 one-day matches for Northerns and boasts an impressive record with 36 wickets at 20.19, all with an economy rate under 5 runs per over.

In his 11 T20 matches, Nkese has captured 12 wickets at 15.25 with an economy of 7.41 and a strike rate of 12.3 balls per wicket.

His numbers rank amongst some of the best in South African domestic cricket, particularly his low economy, and impressive strike rate.

Nkese's success has already generated national interest with inclusion to play for a South African Invitation XI against the touring Sri Lankans at Willowmore Park in Benoni in February 2019.

An incredibly skillful bowler, Nkese bowls with decent pace and has bagged some big wickets in domestic cricket to date. He is now looking to progress in the game and push for global T20 cricket in future.

For now, though, he wants to secure a domestic spot this summer following the recent CSA restructuring, before exploring an overseas club for the UK 2022 season.

There are no overseas stats available for this player.
