Daan van Bunge is a gifted allrounder who represented his country at various age group levels, including the 1996 Under-15 World Cup in England and the Under-17 tour of the UK two years later, he made making his ODI debut in Sri Lanka in 2002. Prior to the 2003 World Cup in South Africa he spent three months over there, which paid dividends as he hit his highest ODI score of 62 against India and followed that by picking up 3 for 16 against England with his legspin, dismissing Nick Knight, Michael Vaughan and Andrew Flintoff. In 2004 his reputation was further enhanced as he smashed the MCC Young Cricketers record for the fastest hundred when, against Surrey Under-19, he took just 38 balls to reach the landmark.
His form going into the 2007 World Cup was patchy, and although he hit the headlines there is was for the wrong reasons as Herschelle Gibbs smashed him for six sixes in an over. On his return home he surprisingly announced that he was making himself unavailable for international cricket, citing a lack of time as the reason, but returned in 2008. He comes from a sporting family and his brothers Job and Coen both play for VCC in Holland.
