One of the elite T20 players in the competition, the South African superstar led the Strikers during BBL|02 and took out the MVP award.
Already with one of the best T20 records in the world, Botha’s prowess with bat and ball proved pivotal in the Striker’s four wins for the season. He made 90 runs at 45.00, with a strike rate of 126.76 and took five wickets, with a best haul of 1/17 against the Melbourne Renegades.
Botha holds a superb overall T20 record, representing South Africa in 40 games, with an average of 18.27 runs and has taken 37 wickets. His domestic record is even more impressive with a total of 25 wickets and a batting average of 25.39.
Off the field he is Dad to son Austin, who was seen at a number of Strikers games having a bit of fun on the ground after a game, and young daughter Ashlee.
He brings class, experience and leadership - a quality player.
