Divan Posthumus is a skilful and experienced seam bowling all-rounder from Kempton Park, South Africa. A hard-hitting middle order Batsman, his dominant discipline is his Right-arm Fast/Medium new ball bowling. A bit of a late bloomer, Divan is currently representing the Easterns Province in the South African domestic system.

Having represented Easterns at Under-19 level during the 2012–13 Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Cricket Festival, Divan then drifted from the game to pursue work and life outside the bubble of professional sport. He continued to play Cricket but in season 2021-22 was given an opportunity to push his way back in to the Provincial game with his home province.

He made a cracking start to his First Class debut, bagged a pair of LBW’s in just his second over in the big time, finishing the innings with 3-10 (8.4). He would finish with match figures of 5-46 (18.4) and scores of 19 & 20 in his two stints at the crease. Divan has gone on to also represent the Province in the one-day format bagging 3-15 against South Western Districts in his first white-ball foray.

Seeking his first season in the UK in 2023, Divan joined Rugby CC in the Warwickshire Premier Division as player/coach. His first up performance was excellent with 35 wickets @ 14.91 including a best of 5-40 to go with 666 runs.

Divan will be an excellent pick up for a club seeking a genuine new ball bowler that can be a sound middle order contributor next summer.
