Profile

A leg-spinning all-rounder who turns the ball prodigiously, Dane van Niekerk made her international debut for South Africa at the 2009 World Cup in Australia, playing in South Africa's loss to the West Indies in the group stages, and then taking 3 for 11 as South Africa beat Sri Lanka in the 7th place play-off later in the tournament.
