25 March 2024 - Lions Cricket is buzzing with excitement as 17-year-old matriculant Kwena Maphaka joins the Mumbai Indians for this year's Indian Premier League. This marks the third Pride member from Lions Cricket to join the IPL this season, showcasing the talent nurtured within the Lions Cricket ranks.

President of Lions Cricket, Dr. Mohammed Moosajee, is proud to see Maphaka join the ranks of the Mumbai Indians, with the esteemed Dr. Moosajee himself serving as the official team doctor for the Rajasthan Royals.

Adding to the pride is #ThePrideOfJoburg's KG Rabada, who, after a stellar performance in the CSA T20 Challenge, has been signed by the Punjab Kings. Rabada's consistency and skill have made him a standout player, representing Lions Cricket on the international stage.

Russell Domingo, the Head Coach of DP World Lions, expressed his excitement for Maphaka's opportunity, highlighting the youngster's talent and work ethic. Domingo praised Maphaka's contribution to the team, especially his ability to take crucial wickets early in the game and perform under pressure.

Allan Donald, the Bowling Coach of DP World Lions, echoed Domingo's sentiments, stating that Maphaka is a rare talent with a bright future ahead. Donald compared Maphaka to Rabada, noting their shared determination and confidence in their abilities.

Maphaka's journey from the local schooling system to the IPL is a testament to his hard work and dedication, as well as the support of the coaching staff at Lions Cricket. His inclusion in the Mumbai Indians squad is not only a milestone in his career but also a source of pride for Lions Cricket and South African cricket as a whole.

As Maphaka embarks on this exciting chapter, Lions Cricket wishes him the very best and looks forward to seeing him shine on the international stage.
