AJ van Wyk is a tall off-spin bowling all-rounder from Bloemfontein in South Africa’s Free State. A former age group representative, AJ was a stand-out performer for the province at the CSA Under-17 Week in December 2012, although at that time, he was an opening bowler!!
Having made the switch to Off-Spin in early 2016, AJ has worked hard not only to master the discipline but has continued to work hard on his contributions with the bat scoring 912 runs @ 30.4 for University of Free State in 2016-17. Opening the bowling in T20 and sometimes in One-Day games also AJ has collected 68 wickets @ 24.78 across 2016-17.
With good controls and a great cricket brain, AJ has previous UK experience, with Babbacombe CC in Devon in 2014 as an 18yo. In this stint, he averaged 30.8 in 35 games for Babbacombe in 2014 and collected 81 wickets.
Seeking a return to the UK, AJ will be avialable from Early June through to the end of the 2017 season.
