Profile

Western Province's first choice wicketkeeper since Richie Ryall retired a couple of seasons back. An athletic wicketkeeper with a flair for the spectacular, although it doesn't always come off. A useful right-handed batsman, especially in the limited-overs competition, he hits the ball hard and straight and has played a few invaluble innings for Province already. At the moment, Kirsten is a wicketkeeper who can bat, but with a few big scores in the 1997/8 season we could see another Kirsten seriously challenging for a berth in the South African team, especially so if his good understanding with incumbent test spinner Paul Adams is taken into account.
