Pieter Strydom made his Test debut in the controversial forfeited-innings Test played against England at Centurion in 2000. Selected as an allrounder he only bowled six overs and scored 30 in trying conditions. In his following, and final, Test against India in Mumbai he did not bowl and failed with the bat. He also played 10 one-day internationals. During the Hansie Cronje betting scandal - uncovered on that tour to India - Strydom pleaded not guilty to a charge of attempting to place a bet on the outcome of the Centurion Park Test match and was acquitted of all charges. He came to the fore in 1987 when he was selected to play for the SA Schools side, going on to gain Border Provincial colours in 1992-93 season. A useful left-arm spinner and middle-order batsman, he never reached his true potential as an international player.
