Christiaan Jonker is an explosive batter who was finally rewarded with international selection in 2018, following years of domestic dominance.

The Warriors Franchise star played 4 matches for the Proteas (2 ODIs, 2 T20Is), with the highlight, a 24-ball 49 on debut against India. However, despite his immediate impact on the international stage, Jonker hasn't featured for the Proteas since.

Jonker's national selection was based on years of domestic toil across the three formats for Provincial sides North West, Border, and South West Districts, not to mention his Franchise exploits for the Warriors.

Whilst Jonker has excelled in first-class cricket (4,241 runs at 38.90 in 71 matches), he has gravitated towards white-ball cricket in recent years. In-fact, his last first-class match was in October 2017, albeit he's set to feature for Boland in 2021/22, having recently signed for their CSA Division 1 campaign.

Despite not featuring at first-class level recently, he has continued to shine in T20 cricket, in-particular, playing various tournaments both home, with the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants (Mzansi Super League), and abroad Rajshahi Kings (Bangladesh Premier League), Edmonton Royals (Canadian T20 Global League).

He boasts tremendous numbers in white-ball cricket. To date, Jonker has played 102 matches in List A and T20 cricket apiece, scoring 2,918 runs at 36.93 (List A), and 1,894 runs at 25.59 (T20).

Jonker has also been prolific in league cricket and has shown a penchant for chalking up big scores. Dating back to his UK debut in 2006, he has racked up over 7,000 runs at 65 with 20 hundreds. With his handy medium-pace, he has captured almost 150 wickets at a tick over 20 with best figures of 7-35.

In 2006, he topped the Bristol and Somerset Division of the West of England Premier League hitting 988 league runs at a Bradman-esque average of 99.80, including three hundreds (122*, 125, 154). He also captured 39 league wickets at 15.87 to finish sixth in the division wicket charts.

In 2008, he spent a successful summer in Northern Ireland for North West club Fox Lodge (629 runs at 48.38 and 22 wickets at 17.45). Two years on, in 2010 he played in the Norfolk Alliance Premier League for North Runcton belting a 119-ball 194 (18x4s, 13x6s) en-route to 567 league runs at 51.55. He continued his merry way in 2011 for Birmingham Premier League side Walsall finishing inside the top five leading run-scorers (790 runs at 46.47), ahead of the likes of Douggie Brown and Wasim Jaffer. His tally included a best of 169 and he also took 23 wickets at 23.09 with his brisk medium pace for good measure.

He returned in 2012 to continue his run spree, racking up 560 runs at 56 helping his side to the Championship. In 2014, Jonker once again dominated league cricket - this time for Monton and Weaste, helping the club win the Championship division of the Central Lancashire League. He was one of the CLL stand-out's hitting 1,253 runs at 78.31 with a league best 222 alongside an averaging topping 32 wickets at 10.69. He returned to the club in 2016 for their inaugural Pennine League campaign and starred again, hitting 939 runs at 55.25 in the league amongst 1,326 runs at 63.14 in all cricket.

Jonker has enjoyed tremendous success both home and abroad in recent years and is now eager to return to Northern shores once more in 2022. Given his performances, Jonker will definitely be one of the most sought-after players on the market next summer.
