Profile

Alviro Petersen, a right-hand opening batsman who forged a path to Test cricket in 2010 - nine year after his professional debut. It seemed as if he had turned his back on his country in 2011 after signing a county contract with Glamorgan but was picked again at the start of 2012 and has now cemented his place at the top order in international cricket.
