The fact that the Titans brought Makwetu straight out of school and into their franchise squad shows how highly they rate the incredibly talented wicketkeeper batsman.
While he went to school at St Stithians in bizhub Highveld Lions territory, Makwetu is now enrolled at the University of Pretoria in the Commerce Department and his game can only grow in such a high-performance programme.
The captain of the SA U19 side was named in the team of the tournament for the junior World Cup and can bat in the top-order, meaning he won’t just be limited to competing with the other wicketkeeper batsmen in the Titans squad.
The 19-year-old will head into the season on the back of captaining the in England.
Coach Mark Boucher said he was particularly impressed by Makwetu’s ability to perform in pressure situations.
