Profile

Johannes Jacobus Kotze, known as 'Kodgee', was one of the fastest bowlers in the history of the game. Born in Hopefield, Cape Province, he toured England with the 1901, 1904 (104 first-class wickets) and 1907 South African teams, having a good deal of success on the first two tours, when Tlum' Warner thought him to be second only to Kortright for speed.
