Tall and taciturn, flinty and fastidious, Davy Jacobs is the kind of cricketer any captain would welcome into his team. For the first seven seasons of his career, his captains at Eagles and then Warriors knew they could depend on his forthright batting and solid wicketkeeping. Then the Warriors took the logical step of appointing Jacobs as captain. It took him just two seasons to repay that faith, when he guided his team to triumph in the Standard Bank Pro20 and the MTN40 in the summer of 2010-11, the first trophies ever won by the Eastern Cape franchise.
