Beyers Swanepoel is an exciting pace bowling all-rounder who made waves in South African domestic cricket last summer.

Following two seasons with Free State (110 runs at 18.33 and 17 wickets at 22.17 in 5 first-class games), he moved to Northern Cape last season and excelled scoring 389 runs at 55.57 and taking 34 wickets at 16.76.

Season highlights included his blistering 188 not out (from 169 balls with 16 fours and 8 sixes) against KwaZulu Natal and a sequence of 5-wicket hauls against Eastern Province (5-84), Northerns (5-40) and his career-best against North West (7-50).

His success culminated with Franchise inclusion in January 2020, playing a Knights first-class match against the Lions. He was then selected to represent a CSA Invitational XI against the touring England side a few weeks later, where he produced notable performances in both games - 2-42 and 2-58 / 25* (20), including the wickets of Denly, Ali, Woakes and Curran.

The right-arm seamer and explosive left-hand batsman is now delivering the promise that saw him represent Northerns through all age-groups, the Titans Cubs, and South African Universities. For the latter, he was their leading wicket-taker during the South Africa Emerging Players Tri-Series in June-July 2019.

Following his 2019/20 domestic season, Swanepoel was excited to return to the UK having signed with reigning Cornwall Premier champions’ Penzance for their 2020 season. Unfortunately, COVID struck, putting pay to his Northern shores return. Nevertheless, the club was swift to defer the agreement through to 2021.

Swanepoel has previously spent a season abroad with Anston in the Bassetlaw and District Championship. He enjoyed a prolific maiden stint racking up 1,395 runs at 46.50 and 66 wickets at 17.61. Much will be expected from this promising all-rounder coming UK 2021.
