** Available for the UK/EU 2023 season **

Tladi Bokako is a genuine quick who has joined Central Gauteng for the 2021/22 season, following the recent CSA domestic restructuring.

The right-arm speedster formed part of a formidable Lion’s pace attack which included Kagiso Rabada, Lutho Sipamla, Duanne Olivier, and Wiaan Mulder.

In a side skippered by Temba Bavuma, with no less than 10 internationals within the Lion’s squad, Bokako is hoping the move will push him towards national selection.

Hailing from Port Elizabeth in South Africa’s Eastern Cape, “Laha”, as he’s affectionally known, is no stranger to Franchise cricket having enjoyed stints with the Warriors (2016/17-17/18) and Cobras (2018/19-19/20).

He has also been a stand-out performer in the CSA Provincial Competitions for Eastern Province (2012/13-17/18), South West Districts (2018/19), and Western Province (2019/20), and courtesy of his success, has earned numerous caps for the South African Invitation and Emerging Players, teams (2017-19).

In his career dating back to his first-class debut in 2012, Laha has played well over 100 domestic matches, where he has taken almost 250 wickets.

No mug with the bat, whilst opportunities have been limited in the lower order, he is nudging 1,000 domestic runs with a highest score of 56 in first-class cricket.

After a slow start to his domestic career, he really hit his straps for EP during the 2014/15 season, taking 33 wickets at 24.15 to including two 5-wicket hauls. He hasn’t looked back, with season tallies of 26 at 29.42 (2015/16), 32 at 22.44 (2016/17), 43 at 24.37 (2017/18), 21 at 28.52 (2018/19), and 20 at 25.70 (2020/21) in red-ball cricket.

The majority of his recent wickets have come at Franchise level, to include 28 wickets at 26.42 and 27 wickets at 34.77 for the Warriors and Cobras, respectively.

Whilst Laha has been a journeyman in South African circles, he hasn’t spent time abroad. After the current 2022/23 season, he plans to change that and pursue his maiden UK league opportunity for the 2023 summer.

A seriously high-class quick, who will be a more than useful contributor with the bat from the lower-middle order. Laha is definitely one to strongly consider if you’re looking for firepower next season!
