Reeza Hendricks has fashioned a reputation as a destructive T20 opener, with crisp shot-making, particularly through the covers, and one adept at pacing a knock and scoring quickly at either end of an innings.
Hendricks made his international debut in a T20I series against Australia in 2014, where he made 49 in the third match. In August 2018 he joined the short list of South Africans to have made a century in their first ODI, cracking 102 from 89 balls against Sri Lanka to seal an away series win.
Hendricks rose through the South African domestic ranks with consistent performances in the limited-overs game, first for Griqualand West and then for the Lions franchise. His talent was spotted young, and he was part of South Africa's squad for the Under-19 World Cup in Malaysia in 2008, which met Virat Kohli's India team in the tournament final.
Hendricks became a regular starter for South Africa in white-ball cricket in 2018, following a domestic season where he was the first to score centuries in all three South African franchise competitions in a season, with three hundreds in the four-day competition in addition to those in the Momentum one-day and Ram Slam T20 tournaments. In the inaugural edition of the Mzansi Super League later that year, he played a crucial part in Jozi Stars' title win, with 412 runs in eight innings, including back-to-back unbeaten hundreds.
In mid-2022, Hendricks hit a rich seam of form ahead of the T20 World Cup, reeling off three fifties in a row against England, followed by 74 and 42 against Ireland in the space of ten days, and added 74 in an away ODI against India a couple of months later.
