Beuran Hendricks hails from Belville Cricket Club in the Cape and was nurtured through the ranks in the province. He first represented them at the end of the 2010-11 season, when he was just 21. His ability to bowl at pace - in the 140s kph - and swing the ball was what caught the eye.
Hendricks developed into a prospect for the future in the 2012-13 season when he was a regular member of the Cobras set-up. Bowling alongside the likes of Johann Louw and Charl Langeveldt, he learnt from experience and was the fifth highest-wicket-taker of the first-class season with 35 scalps at 17.74.
He was selected as part of South Africa A's 2013 winter programme and prospered on flat pitches. Fiver-fors against Australia A and India A earned him the praise of High Performance director Vincent Barnes and set him up to lead the Cobras attack in the coming summer.
