One of the elite T20 players in the competition, the South African all-rounder has captained the Strikers throughout the three seasons of the KFC T20 Big Bash so far.

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.

Botha is consistently the Strikers' most economical bowler and is dangerous around the in-field, having affected a number of run-outs during the Big Bash.  

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. Darren Berry
