Fast bowler Malusi Siboto has left the Multiply Titans following the expiry of his contract.
Siboto, who enjoyed a successful two year stint with the Centurion franchise, was offered a new one-year contract. However, the right-arm seamer declined the offer, and opted to explore alternative avenues.
It is yet to be confirmed which franchise the 30-year old will be joining.
“It is disappointing to lose a player of Malusi’s calibre”, said assistant coach Mandla Mashimbyi. “He added value both on and off the field.
"He’s the type of player that every team would want to have - works hard, and puts in extra hours in the nets. He’s very much in touch with his game, so I hope he maintains that part of his game and keeps on pushing himself."
“We expressed interest in retaining his services for the upcoming season, as he was an integral member of our bowling attack and formed a key part of our success, and we believed he would continue to do so."
"We respect his decision to leave the franchise and wish him all the best for his future in cricket.”
Siboto joined the Titans from the VKB Knights in the summer of 2016, and went on to established himself across all three formats.
The paceman impressed in the shortest format, where his final-over heroics against the Warriors at SuperSport Park, played a pivotal role in clinching the CSA T20 Challenge.
The following season, he honed in his skills with the bat, and established himself as a bowling allrounder. His performances earned him calls up to the South African A side, against Bangladesh A and Australia A.
