Bio

Playing Twenty20 cricket for over 10 years, the captain of the Strikers squad brings a wealth of international experience to the squad. 

The former South African T20 skipper, Botha was just as handy with the bat as he was with his trade mark off-spin bowling. 

A more than handy average of 18.27, Botha has so far played in every BBL tournament and recently made his first first-class hundred for South Australia, scoring 109.

Botha also has a strong Twitter presence with over 150K followers and 1K tweets.
