An attacking right-handed batsman, Riki Wessels, the son of former South Africa captain, Kepler Wessels, Riki has built quite a reputation in Nottinghamshire - as a white-ball basher and one who could win England honours in the near future. Born in Australia, he signed with Northamptonshire as part of their second XI in 2004, a team that was coached by his father. Wessels' started his career on a promising note and it wasn't a surprise that he broke into the first eleven at Northants. His consistency saw him get rewarded with an extension in 2008, but had to be released from the squad at the end of the 2009 season after the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) tightened the Kolpak rules. Wessels had a spell in Zimbabwe with the Mid-West Rhinos, but was back in the United Kingdom ahead of the 2011 season - this time having signed a deal with Nottinghamshire. Wessels has been hot and cold ever since his return to the UK. He has made plenty of runs, but those have come in the midst of plenty of average scores, which finally resulted him being dropped from the Championship side after the county was relegated to the second division in 2016. While his four-day career hasn't been smooth, Wessels has been very useful in the shorter formats of the game. He once shared a then record 342-run stand with Michael Lumb in a Royal London Cup match against Northants, beating the previous 318-run stand - between Rahul Dravid and Saurav Ganguly, for India against Sri Lanka, during the 1999 World Cup. His attacking batting style has meant that Wessles has been part of several cash-rich Twenty20 leagues, notably with the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash and Peshawar Zalmi in the Pakistan Super League.
