An imposing allrounder, with the skills to take pace off the ball and a strong lofted drive, David Wiese was a late bloomer who came to prominence in the shorter formats. He began his career at Easterns and in 2005 established himself as a regular at the provincial union and the Titans franchise.
As Jacques Kallis' career wound down and South Africa needed to search for other options, Wiese came into contention. He was taken on the 2013 tour of Sri Lanka and played in the three T20Is, but modest returns sent him back to the domestic system.
The 2014-15 summer was among Wiese's best. He was a key performer in the Titans' one-day cup win, picking up seven wickets and proving a handy lower-order contributor, with four fifties. Those performances helped him nail down a more regular place in South Africa's T20I squad but it was only in early 2015 that he showed his true worth.
Wiese was the top wicket-taker in a three-match T20I series against West Indies that year, which also included a career-best 5 for 23. In that match, Wiese showed his ability with the cutter, an important skill on subcontinent pitches.
The IPL was watching and in that year's auction, Wiese was picked up by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for US$460,000. He finished the season with 16 wickets - the fourth-highest tally among RCB bowlers.
Wiese featured regularly for South Africa's T20I squad throughout 2015 and was part of South Africa's 2016 World T20 squad.
