Robin Peterson has had a solid career for South Africa, but has failed to cement a consistent spot in any form of the game.
After making his Test debut back in 2003, the left-arm finger spinner has managed just five more matches in the premier format of the game.
Despite limited opportunities, Peterson boasts a five wicket haul against Bangladesh in the Summer of 2008, where he took 5/33. That was also the last time he played a Test.
Peterson has enjoyed a little more experience in ODI’s, having played 60 matches for his country. After a two year hiatus from the national side, Peterson was South Africa’s leading wicket taker at the 2011 World Cup. The outstanding efforts on the sub-continent have led to regular appearances for his country.
The all-rounder has applied his trade with several T20 sides across the world, including the Mumbai Indians in the IPL. His last eight appearances for South Africa have all been in T20 matches. An impressive 2/25 in his last outing against India has him in good stead for the upcoming tour of Australia.
