Nonelela Yikha – South Africa

Nonelela Yikha is a 19 year old genuine all rounder with tons of ability, he is a strong top order batsman and an attacking right arm off spinner who gives it a right rip. A product of Hudson High School an establishment that has produced many fine cricketers Nonelela showed lots of promise from an early age and was a stand out throughout the age groups. On leaving school he was picked up by the Border Provincial Set up and made his debut in January of 2020 against Provincial Powerhouses Northerns. His debut couldn’t have gone much better, having been forced to follow on Border were staring down the barrel at 106-6 when the 18 year old debutant strode to the wicket, he crafted a patient disciplined 66 in a stand of 105 with number 9 Clayton Bosch to steer his side to a creditable and unlikely draw. Nonelela went on to play 3 more 1st class games and 4 One dayers before the end of the season and left no one in any doubt as to his ability. There is much more to come from this young man and his 2 appearances for the SA U19 team may not be his last in the Green and Gold, He is available for 2021 and represents fantastic value.
