Profile

Riki Wessels, a batsman-wicketkeeper, is the son of the former Australia and South Africa player and former Northants coach Kepler Wessels. He achieved British citizenship in 2016, but it came just as England assembled one of their most exciting batting line-ups for years in limited-overs cricket, tempering suggestions that he might win international honours.
