Bas Zuiderent
Born: 3/3/77
Team: Sussex
ODI debut: 17/2/96
Past World Cups: 1996

Right-handed batsman
Right-arm medium bowler

One of the stars of the Dutch team, Zuiderent first came to prominence during the 1996 World Cup when he scored an impressive 54 against England at the age of 18.

The right-handed batsman, who started his career at VOC (Rotterdam), has gained vital experience overseas, playing in South Africa in 1997-98 and moving to Sussex during the 1999 season.

The fourth Dutchman to make his mark in county cricket, and the only one currently playing in England, he won a regular place in the Sussex first team in 2001.

It was Zuiderent's respected decision to concentrate on his county contract that forced him to miss the Netherlands' qualifying campaign in Canada.

While the Dutch side managed to win the ICC Trophy in spite of his absence, they will definitely need his run-getting talents in South Africa.
