Profile

Johan Botha is the quintessential limited-overs player, who does several things well, adding value as a thrifty offspinner, a useful lower-order batsman and a fine fielder. During the late 2000s, he was a regular in South Africa's ODI and T20I squads, though his brand of economical offspin bowling was considered too limited to make him a regular in the longer format - he has played only five Tests for South Africa.
