Jovaun van Wyngaardt (25) is an exciting pace bowling all-rounder playing for the North West Dragons in South African domestic cricket. A skilful new-ball bowler, who moves the ball both ways, and hard-hitting middle-order batsman, van Wyngaardt is treading the right path towards Franchise honours.

He is a highly rated player who has already played warm-up matches for the Lions. The all-rounder has impressed in first-class cricket since his debut in December 2016, picking up 31 wickets at 27.09 and scoring 317 runs at 22.64 at the point of writing.

However, these numbers are on the rise – 11 wickets at 45.90 during his debut season in 2016/17 preceded a barnstorming 2017/18 season taking 12 wickets at 17.91. At present, he’s already taken 8 wickets at 14.50 in the current 2018/19 season.

Van Wyngaardt was always destined for professional cricket. He represented Northerns through the age-groups and topped the Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Week wicket charts in December 2011 (19 wickets at 10.15). He then starred for his club side, North West University (Tuks), helping them to Red Bull Campus and Momentum National Club Championship titles. In April 2017, he was a stand-out, averaging 79 and 18.62 during the latter tournament.

The star all-rounder headed to England last summer and, despite an injury that hampered the start of his summer he impressed, taking 41 wickets at 15.44 alongside scoring 358 runs at 23.87 for Blackpool in the strong Northern ECB Premier League. The talented South African will return to Northern shores in 2019, having recently signed with Lancashire League club Rawtenstall.
