Right-arm fast-medium bowler
Right-handed batsman

At just 20 years old, all-rounder van Rooi has already made a name for himself in the Namibian side.

The lightly built pace bowler first hit the headlines when he laid waste to Scotland's middle and lower order in a crucial Super League match during the 2001 ICC Trophy.

Van Rooi was central to Namibia's World Cup qualifying campaign, showing impressive consistency and ability to adhere to a metronomic line in the dying stages of matches.

As a product of the national development programme, he is one of the country's brightest hopes in cricket.

Despite back problems over the last year, the right-hander aims to be in top form in South Africa.
