South Africa Cricket Players
Nico "Nicky" Boje (born 20 March 1973, Bloemfontein, Orange Free State) and attended the prestigious Grey College in Bloemfontein is a South African cricketer who has played 41 Tests and 115 one-day internationals for South Africa. Boje's international career began in 1995 against Zimbabwe, and although he has been in and out of the team due to injuries he has established himself as South Africa's first choice spin bowler. Due to the amount of all-rounders in the South African team, Boje has usually batted at eight or nine in the batting order, despite a first class batting average of 32 and both Test and ODI averages around 26, which is the highest for a regular number nine in Test cricket in the 2000s. However, despite the reasonably high average he is yet to hit a Test century, although he has made two ODI centuries against New Zealand in 200001.
