Bio

South African captain Mignon du Preez will join the Stars this summer. One of the Proteas’ most decorated players, du Preez debuted for her country at 17 years of age and has represented South Africa on over 100 occasions.

The 26-year-old has played 55 T20 Internationals and has passed 50 on five occasions, with a best of 69. She often bats at first or second drop and looks to get the side off to a positive start. Du Preez is very competent with the wicket-keeping gloves but is not a full time keeper, often relinquishing the gloves to focus on her captaincy.

She made her test debut last year, scoring a hundred against a strong Indian attack. Du Preez’s highest ODI is an unbeaten 100 which she scored against Bangladesh in 2013.
