Doug Meintjes played two Tests for South Africa against England in 1922-23 as a fast-medium bowler who could bat. He took six wickets for 115 and all the wickets were top-order batsmen. Meintjes was picked for the South African tour of England in 1924 but was never close to the Test team. Later, he became secretary to the Wanderers Cricket Club and was South African manager in 1948-49.
