Moreki is a fast-medium bowler who can swing the new ball away from the right-hander, and trouble batsmen with the delivery that nips back off the seam.
He was part of the Sunfoil Dolphins team that played at the Bidvest Wanderers against the bizhub Highveld Lions. The hosts romped to a 10-wicket win, courtesy of a 14-wicket haul by Kagiso Rabada.
“It was a great learning curve to play against international-class batsmen like Neil McKenzie and Alviro Petersen,” he added.
In a Momentum One Day Cup match against The Unlimited Titans, Moreki nipped out one for 29 in seven overs to ensure that the Dolphins host the semi-final play-offs.
Moreki said the social camaraderie at the Dolphins was enjoyable. He hung out with a couple of younger players like Khaya Zondo, Calvin Savage and Daryn Dupavillon.
“We not only shared barbeques and the odd drink, but also played a few rounds of golf together,” he added.
He said the greatest coaching influence in his life was Yashin Ebrahim, who mentored him while he was at the Dolphins Academy just after finishing his grade-12-year at Glenwood.
“My goal during this coming season as part of the Cape Cobras squad is to establish myself as part of the team in all three formats,” he said.
It will be quite a challenging apprenticeship for the exciting 21-year old new-ball bowler. Other young pretenders like Travis Miller and Mpilo Njoloza along the senior statesmen like Beuran Hendricks, Rory Kleinveldt and Mthokozisi Shezi will all be setting their sights on being part of the Cape champions’ starting eleven.
