Profile

Originating from South Africa and scored 52 from 89 on his one-day debut against England in June 2006 and also notched 56 in his third game against the Netherlands. He struggled with the bat in the 2007 World Cricket League but topped the Irish bowling averages with 13 wickets at 21.30. His 78 and 43 against Kenya were key to Ireland winning the Intercontinental Cup Final in 2005 and he continued his love affair with the tournament in February 2007 when, against UAE in a must win game his 157 was part of a competition record partnership of 360 with Eoin Morgan that set up a crushing win and put them in the final. He still struggled with the bat during Ireland's campaign in the 2007 World Cup, though he chipped in with five wickets.
