Onke Nyaku returns to Western ProvinceOnke Nyaku.

All-rounder Onke Nyaku has returned to Western Province from South Western Districts ahead of South Africa’s 2023-24 domestic season.

Nyaku was capped by the Cape Cobras on several occasions before leaving for South Western Districts.

Nyaku captained SWD and, in November 2022, struck a maiden double-century in first-class cricket.

“Onke captained our side and scored a not-out double-ton for us against Limpopo. You’ve always got to take notice of guys who score double-tons. We wish him well,” SWD chief executive officer Albertus Kennedy told Rapport.

SWD have also lost spinning all-rounder Shaun Whitehead, who has joined the Warriors.

They are seeking a new coach, too, after former head coach Piet Botha joined the Proteas as bowling coach.
