#6 Roelof van der Merwe 

The left-arm spinner made his debut for South Africa in 2009

Roelof van der Merwe recorded his debut for Northerns in South Africa during the 2006 domestic season. Bowling his slow left-arm spinners, van der Merwe proved his mettle consistently at the first class level and progressed to the national level in the year 2009. 

He made his One Day debut for South Africa in a home series against the mighty Aussies in 2009. Having dominated the T-20 format of the tournament with his all-around abilities, he was included in the One Day squad. Subsequently, the lack of wickets resulted in his omission from the national side. 

The 32-year-old received his Dutch passport in 2015 which authorised him to play for the Netherlands. He was picked up in the 15 member squad of the Dutch team for the 2015 World Cup qualifiers. 

Representing the Netherlands, he scalped 15 wickets in 11 games.
