Profile

A useful legspinning allrounder, Jackie du Preez was a dominant player for Rhodesia in the Currie Cup, and in 1973-74 he completed the rare double of 2000 runs and 100 wickets. In more than 100 appearances over almost two decades, du Preez scored more than 3000 runs and took over 200 wickets. He played two Tests, both for South Africa in 1966-67, making a duck in each. An employee of a tobacco company in Harare, he later became one of Zimbabwe's national selectors.
