Rivaldo Moonsamy is a naturally gifted Batting All-Rounder, originally from Pretoria but now based in Kimberley with the Northern Cape Province. A stroke-making Right-Hander with shots all around the ground, he is also a front line wicket-keeper as well as being a better than useful Right-arm Off Spinner. He represented South Africa at U19 Level, contesting the 2016 ICC U19 World Cup in Bangladesh.

A schoolboy star and regular representative for his native Northerns Province through the age groups, he was selected to debut for the Northerns Senior side at 18, against Eastern Province in a T20 on his home ground of Centurion. 4-Day and 1-Day debuts followed and a little over 12 months later, the precociously talented youngster was selected for the South Africa Emerging players for their Tri-Series with the University Sports SA and Sri Lankan emerging players sides.

He has gone on to become a regular across all 3 formats but his aggressive style in red-ball cricket has been the most productive and the move to Northern Cape has been a good one starting the 2022-23 season on fire with back to back 4-day tons in November 2022.

Rivaldo has had just the one UK season to date, a 2017 stint at Greenfield CC in the now defunct Pennine Cricket League.

Seeking a return to the Northern Hemisphere next summer, Rivaldo is seeking to join a quality club in a top standard of cricket anywhere in Europe.
