Profile

With just a clutch of domestic and Under-19 matches to his credit, Roelof van der Merwe marked his Twenty20 international debut for South Africa with a quickfire 48 and 1 for 30. He was duly named Man of the Match. It marked a quick rise for a tidy left-arm spinner who can hit the ball hard.
