Pheko Moletsane is a skilful young all-rounder from Welkom in South Africa’s Free State. A flashy right-hander suited to the Middle order, Pheko is a very capable Right-arm Off Spinner that represents South Western Districts in the South African Professional system, having relocated from the Free State head of the 2021-22 summer. Pheko has also represented South Africa U19.

A junior star, Pheko was a regular selection for Free State from Under 13 right through to the U19 Khaya Majola Coke Week side, for which he was selected two years running as a 15/16 year-old. In 2019 at just 17, Pheko made his First Class debut for the Free State against Border, scoring a gritty 22 batting at 10.

By the end of 2019, it was no surprise that Pheko was selected for the South African Under 19 side to contest the 2020 ICC Under 19 World Cup, played in South Africa. He played half a dozen games for the junior Proteas in all and has gone on to make himself a regular selection for SWD since shifting down to Oudtshoorn. Summer 2023-24 saw Pheko start to live up to the expectation, scoring his debut hundred against Northern Cape, an outstanding 120 (157).

Seeking his first season in the UK in 2024, Pheko will be a good pick up for any club seeking a spin-bowling all-rounder for the summer keen to use his time here to bat up the order as he did through the age groups. Pheko is CSA Level One qualified coach.
