Boeta Dippenaar

Hendrik Human Dippenaar, known as Boeta (born 14 June 1977, Kimberley, Cape Province) is a cricketer who has played Test and one-day international cricket for South Africa and the ACA African XI. He has played as a specialist batsman in most of his matches, and has played Test cricket in all batting positions from one through seven . He bats right handed and bowls occasional off breaks. Dippenaar made his international debut in September 1999, playing two of South Africa's four one-day internationals as an opening batsman during the LG Cup in Kenya, which South Africa won, and he also played both Tests in the home-and-away Test series with Zimbabwe in October and November that same month, making 56 runs in four innings. He was in and out of both the Test and one-day international team during the next five years, never playing more than eight Tests in succession, but during the tour of the West Indies in 200405 Dippenaar's showed signs of improving. He was selected for two Tests against the West Indies, recording two fifties in three innings, and subsequently averaged 105.66 in the 5-ODI series against the West Indies, which earned him the Player of the Month title from cricketweb.net. However, he made four sub-25 scores in his next ODIs, before a wrist injury ruled him out of the remaining four matches against New Zealand and the tour of India in November. By December, Dippenaar had recovered, and he turned out for the Eagles in three Standard Bank Cup matches in that month, scoring 49 runs in his three innings. The South African selectors did, however, call on him for the one-day leg of the tour of Australia , which will include the VB Series.
