Tazmin Brits and Nonkululeko Mlaba earn maiden CSA contracts

Tazmin Brits and Nonkululeko Mlaba have been rewarded their first central contracts by Cricket South Afica, with Nadine de Klerk the only player to miss out on the list from the last season. A total of 15 women have been contracted by CSA for the 2022-23 season.

Both Brits, a top-order batter who made her ODI debut last January, and left-arm spinner Mlaba were part of the 2022 World Cup in New Zealand where the team finished as semi-finalists.

Pholetsi Moseki, CSA’s chief executive officer, heaped praise on the newcomers’ “dedication and work on and off the field” in the last 12 months.

“After a remarkable year for the Momentum Proteas that saw the team climb to and maintain second spot in the ODI world rankings, it is with immense pleasure to announce next season’s squad of contracted players as they embark on their next challenge in world cricket.

“Just like the previous 12 months, the next year brings forth a hugely-anticipated calendar of international cricket for the Proteas Women and we strongly believe in the set-up in place at the top of our women’s game to continue breaking boundaries and make their mark in the game,” he said.

“On behalf of CSA, congratulations to Tazmin Brits and Nonkululeko Mlaba on their newly-awarded contracts. Their dedication and work on and off the field has not gone unnoticed and these contracts are a reward for their contributions.

The upcoming season will begin with South Africa Women touring Ireland for three T20Is and three ODIs from June 3 before a multi-format tour of England between June 25 and July 27. Then there are the Commonwealth Games T20s in August followed by the T20 World Cup in February 2023, with South Africa hosting the global event for the first time. CSA will play host to the inaugural Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup next year too.

Women’s contracts: Tazmin Brits, Trisha Chetty, Lara Goodall, Shabnim Ismail, Sinalo Jafta, Marizanne Kapp, Ayabonga Khaka, Masabata Klaas, Lizelle Lee, Suné Luus, Nonkululeko Mlaba, Tumi Sekhukhune, Chloé Tryon, Dané van Niekerk, Laura Wolvaardt.
