At the Momentum Multiply Titans, there has been much movement in the 2020 transfer window. The departure of Farhaan Behardien was a massive loss of experience, while Tony de Zorzi and Alfred Mothoa have also moved on to new challenges.

Those departures have opened the door for new blood, one of those arrivals being Sibonelo Makhanya.
Makhanya is most experienced of the new signings, and he is looking to take his career to new heights, as he is now a seasoned campaigner with the Dolphins.

Makhanya will have plenty of familiar faces in the Titans, having crossed paths with players and coaches alike having worked with Geoffrey Toyana in the Mzansi Super League.

He also has happy memories with several players, who he shared a priceless piece of history with as a junior international. Makhanya represented SA under-19 alongside my new Titans team mate Aiden Markram, when they won the World Cup in Dubai. He then went on to captain SA u19 and started playing for the Dolphins from the age of 18.

Makhanya is a middle-order batsman who has shown glimpses of his full potential, particularly in the limited-overs formats. Born and bred in Verulam, Kwazulu-Natal, his career has been littered with lessons. Makhanya represented KZN at all age-group levels, culminating in his ascension into the South Africa under-19 squad. He still holds aspirations for higher honours, but concedes that he will have to rise to the Titans challenge first.
