The 2003 World Cup in South Africa proved a valuable learning experience for allrounder Gerrie Snyman. He played in all-but-one of Namibia's matches, opening the bowling and batting between six and ten. His batting was nothing short of a disaster as he registered three golden ducks in four innings, but he did collect six wickets, including those of Andrew Flintoff and Paul Collingwood.
A year on he hit 75 from 88 balls against an England XI who were touring South Africa, and although he is yet to hit a first-class century, he has two in South Africa's 45-over Provincial Cup, including 116 not out from 91 balls, which included eight sixes, against Easterns in January 2007.
He continues to open the bowling and, although not destructive, he picks up
useful wickets at a good economy rate. He played for Walsall in the
Birmingham League during 2006, starring with both bat and ball, and signed
for Staffordshire for 2007.
