The South African cricket team endured a miserable World Cup tournament, but will now turn their attention to the longer format of the game.
The Proteas will face India away in a test series and one new face has been added to the squad.
Senuran Muthusamy has been chipping away at domestic level and was thrilled to make the national team.
In a recent interview with East Coast Radio, Muthusamy shared some details regarding his background and how he rose to prominence.
Muthusamy was raised by a single mother in the suburb of Westville in Durban and he identifies her as an incredible pillar of strength.
Although he plays cricket professionally, Muthusamy was able to complete a degree and plans to complete his honours in media and communication studies.
Briefly.co.za understands that Muthusamy looked up to Sri Lankan cricketer, Kumar Sangakkara, growing up for the way he played the game and adapted to various conditions around the world.
Although quite young himself, Muthusamy mentors other youngsters at the B.E.S.T cricket academy.
Should he get the call up to play in one of the tests, Muthusamy can count on strong support from his home town.
