One of the hardest workers and most intense players in the Dutch Team, with a very good sense of humour. Has been playing in Australia and South Africa over the last two winters (2001-02-03) and he should be able to take this experience with him and become Holland's number one left-arm spinner during the World Cup. Exciting middle order batsman with a strong accurate arm when fielding.
Has played for Somerset 2nd XI.
