Michel Rippon, born in South Africa and educated at Rondebosch Boys' High School, is a left-arm chinaman bowler who is also qualified to play in English county cricket because of a Dutch passport.
Rippon made his Twenty20 debut for Cape Cobras against the Knights in the 2010-11 Standard Bank Pro20. He made five further appearances for the Cobras in that competition, with his final appearance coming in the final of the competition against the Warriors. He made his debut for Western Province in a List A match against Boland in the same season ans a first-cass debut followed the following year.
Rippon signed for Sussex for the 2012 season and took four wickets on debut in a Friends Life t20 against Kent at Hove. Financial cutbacks put his involvement in doubt when his two-year contract came to an end. He also made international debuts for Netherlands in 2013.
