Profile

A right-arm fast-medium bowler with an effective offcutter, Theunissen enjoyed a good summer against the English tourists in 1888-89, taking 34 wickets in all at 10.73. This secured him his one Test appearance, and his first-class debut, at Cape Town, where he went wicketless. He had two further first-class outings the following season.
