Spinner Lizo Makosi has joined Mpumalanga for South Africa’s 2022-23 domestic season.

Makosi played for the Warriors during the 2021-22 season. He featured in their T20 Challenge campaign more than at first-class or List A level.

Left-arm wrist spinners – such as Makosi, Border’s Thomas Kaber and the Titans’ Tabraiz Shamsi – are uncommon in South African professional cricket.

Confidence is a big part of wrist-spin bowling, so that was something I also had to work on to improve,” he told the HeraldLIVE last year.

“When everyone speaks of leg-spin bowling, you have to mention Shane Warne, but in modern-day cricket, I have also watched a lot of videos of Imran Tahir and Shamsi, who¬†gave me some great advice, too.”
