Mosehle

We caught up with South African wicket-keeper batsman, Mangaliso Mosehle as he continues to push his way into the Proteas plans, after making his international Twenty20 debut in the last year!

The 27-year-old has always been on the national side's radar and has come up through the ranks, playing for the South Africa U19s and going to the World Cup. We spoke to Mosehle about how his faith in Christ impacts his outlook on the game and how he plays it.

Two years ago, the 29-year-old Barbadian was an unknown all-rounder, on the fringes of West Indies cricket, however since smashing England's Ben Stokes for four consecutive sixes to win the T20 World Cup for his country, his stock has risen dramatically. He now balances his national commitments with domestic T20 leagues around the world, known for his power-hitting and accurate bowling, Brathwaite has finally hit the big time.
