Playing Role

Allrounder

Long before he turned out in Dutch orange, allrounder Sybrand Engelbrecht stole the spotlight with a stunning two-handed, diving catch at point for South Africa during the 2008 Under-19 World Cup in Malaysia - headlined on YouTube as 'the Best ever catch in cricket history'. But Engelbrecht struggled to take his sensational fielding into other aspects of his game. The bulk of his career was spent trying to become a franchise regular at Cape Cobras, where he often had to settle for a place in the provincial side instead.

Engelbrecht is a stylish right-hander who has spent time working on his power game as much as his staying power at the crease. He is also a handy offpsinner. Most of his runs were scored in South Africa's second-tier competition, including his 214* against Namibia.

He has had opportunities at higher levels though. In the 2014 Champions League T20, he was a late replacement to Cobras squad and played a starring role when he defended 11 runs in a Super Over to secure a win over Barbados Tridents.

In December 2015, Engelbrecht was cited for a suspect bowling action which was declared illegal. By January 2016, he had reworked his action and tests showed he had corrected it sufficiently to bowl again.
