Profile

A feisty, efficient wicketkeeper-batsman, Kruger van Wyk learnt his cricket at Northerns in South Africa. There, he emerged as one of the likeliest candidates to succeed Mark Boucher behind the stumps. But Boucher showed few signs of relinquishing his position and when van Wyk's coach, Dave Nosworthy offered him the opportunity to move to Canterbury, New Zealand, he took it. By his second season, van Wyk was named captain and lead the Wizards to their first State Championship title. He was stripped of the captaincy midway through the 2009-10 season and left at the start of the next summer to play for Central Districts. van Wyk's batting has developed since that move and he featured among the top five ranked batsmen at his state since joining. He was named in the New Zealand squad to play the touring Zimbabweans in January 2012 as a specialist opening batsman.
