Description:
Thami Lungisa Tsolekile (born 9 October 1980) is a South Africa cricketer who has played three Test matches for South Africa as a wicket-keeper in 2004–05. He was educated in Cape Town at Pinelands High. He failed to pass 25 runs with the bat, and though his glovework has been described as sound by Cricinfo journalist Neil Manthorp, it was not enough to keep his place against established wicket-keeper Mark Boucher. Tsolekile's selection over Boucher also prompted commentaries in the press that positive discrimination had gone too far.

In first class cricket, Tsolekile was a regular wicket-keeper and captain of the Cape Cobras. At the beginning of the 2009/10 season, Tsolekile moved up to Johannesburg to go play for the bizhub Highveld Lions, after losing his place in the Cape Cobras side to Ryan Canning. During the season so far, he has scored his second first-class century and improved his highest first-class score to 151 not out in a drawn match against Warriors at East London. He was involved in a South African record partnership of 365 for the sixth wicket with opener Stephen Cook, who went on to make a record 390.

He also played hockey for his country at international level, scoring on debut, and played soccer during his childhood.
