A versatile wicketkeeper-batsman, who has became a more accomplished batsman as his career progressed to the extent he opened the batting at times for Transvaal in the Castle Cup in the absence of a genuine opening batsman. He is, however, better suited to the middle order where he can play his shots freely and without pressure. He joined Hampshire in 2002 and quickly became a consistent performer in front and behind the stumps. He also appeared for the Indian Cricket League's Delhi Giants team in March 2008. Although he never crossed 1000 runs he was close on a few occasions. Returns started to slip, due to injury, in 2010 and he suffered appendicitis part-way through the 2011 campaign which was the beginning of the end for his Hampshire career. He was released at the conclusion of the season having scored more than 10,000 runs in all cricket and taken more than 500 catches.
