Spin bowling in South Africa is not a child's play. The wickets are usually suited for the seamers and spinners are most often than not second class citizens in the journey called cricket. Tshepo Ntuli though loves being an off-spinner. His rise from being a provincial amateur to being a first-class professional has been a patient one. Patience is one virtue that he has in truckloads as he is not afraid of tossing it up despite being hit. The fear of being hit dents the thinking process of many spinners but not Ntuli. He was chosen for SA's annual spin bowling camp in 2015 and 2016 and in the latter year was selected for Free State to participate in Africa T20 Cup.
