I don't know at all which meaning Mr and Mrs Ntini, senior, intended when they named their son! Nor have I got any idea about their feelings about evil spirits etc. The meanings of names change.

He is certainly a magnificent player - I was privileged to watch him play against the West Indies last month; his bowling is wonderful to watch, and in the field he's never passive or inattentive for a moment - in fact he spends his time encouraging the rest of the team when he isn't chasing impossible shots to the boundary and stopping them. A couple of years ago the then South African and Australian teams did some fitness exercises together, and he was the best sprinter by far - better than some track athletes.
