Profile

Morne van Wyk is another in the seemingly endless supply of quality sportsmen to be unearthed by Grey College in Bloemfontein, his home town. He reached junior provincial level in cricket, rugby, tennis and hockey, and earned South African under-16 hockey colours. Van Wyk was a member of the South African squad in the 1998 Under-19 World Cup, having represented his country against England at the same level in 1997-98. A naturally attacking player, he opened the batting for Free State in limited-overs matches and earned respect beyond his years at first-class level. Van Wyk is a manufactured rather than a born gloveman, but his natural ball-skills enabled Free State to use him as their regular wicketkeeper in both formats of the game in 2002-03.
