Profile

A free-stroking left handed batsman with snappy wrists akin to the subcontinental breed, Rilee Rossouw, first made his mark in the Under-19 World Cup in 2008. He did not set the tournament ablaze, but provided glimpses of his blossoming potential with 136 runs in six matches, including two fifties in South Africa's run to the final.

Rossouw made his First-Class debut a few months before the Under-19 World Cup in Malaysia, top-scoring for Free State against Easterns in Bloemfontein. Catapulting his powers to an all new level, the southpaw cracked the hitherto fastest triple ton in the history of South African domestic cricket in an exhibition of enterprising batsmanship in March 2010. The purple patch got even better that season as Rossouw ended up with 1,261 runs at a stellar average of 57.61.

The young turk also created a splash in the Champions League T20, when he smashed a 19-ball 44 against T&T in 2009. The upshot was that the Bangalore franchise signed him up for the IPL in 2012. Though Rossouw did not get a game, sharing the dressing room with the likes of Ray Jennings, AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli would have sharpened his tactical nous.

With Nic Maddinson sustaining a finger injury, Bangalore re-enlisted Rossouw's services in 2014. Just before the 2015 World Cup, Rossouw also proved his worth in the international arena with a century against the West Indies in the fifth ODI in Centurion.
