Choirboy Fundisi Lwana
From a rural background in the mountains of the Drakensberg, his first love was singing in the Drakensberg boys choir, but it was there his sporting talent was discovered and a scholarship to Maritzburg College beckoned and then onwards to the Westville CC academy.
A diminutive but gritty batsmen, the Zulu version of Temba Bavuma. The first black batsmen to play for the Westville CC first team, a true trail blazer and role model for those on the margins of the sport, earning his way into the first team in season 35 through weight of runs in the second team and maturity beyond his years, at 21 a future first class captain.
Suffered a near career threatening injury in a freak fishing accident and an encounter with a crocodile in which he lost his pinky finger. Poor form followed and some time away from the game before re-entering the first team fray in Season 40, and cracked a 1,000 run season at number 4.
