Profile

Friedel de Wet came close to making a dream debut for South Africa. Called up for the first Test against England in December 2009 for an injured Dale Steyn, de Wet was handed the new ball on a meandering final afternoon and in seven overs of unplayable intensity, he claimed 3 for 11 including the key scalp of Jonathan Trott for 69 as South Africa came within a whisker of pulling off a remarkable victory. It was not to be, however, and his potency was lessened when he picked up a stress fracture of the back in the third Test of the series.
