Profile

A patient opening batsman, Rudi Steyn played three Tests and one one-day international for South Africa in the mid 90's. A player that never rose to his true potential made a solid Test debut when he was involved in a hundred-run opening partnership with Gary Kirsten. His highest Test score, 46 in 220 minutes, was made against New Zealand at Eden Park. An enthusiastic and good close-in fielder, he did duty with three provincial first-class teams before finishing his career with Northerns in 2002. In the latter part of his career his strike rate did improve, recording five one-day hundreds to go with his 11 in first-class cricket.
