Grant Roelofsen is a high-end Top Order Batsman and Wicket-Keeper originally from Johannesburg but now playing his Cricket for Kwa-Zulu Natal Inland as a part of the Dolphins Franchsie system. A patient and focused right-hander, Grant is not only a former age group star for his native Gauteng, but a former South Africa U19 Test & ODI representative. In his first SA U19 test match, playing on the historic Fenner’s ground at Cambridge, he compiled a patient yet clean striking 149 (22 x Fours, 1 x Six).

Having transitioned to the First Class game, making his debut in summer 2016-17, his first season didn’t go as planned with just 97 runs @ 19.40 but he did make a classy 51 in his first outing, a clear sign of the talent he possesses. Roll forward almost 12 months and Grant had shifted provinces to KZN Inland and was back in the First Class frame. In his first season at the province, he smoked 781 runs @ 65.08 including a stellar 224* (276) against Namibia at Pietermaritzburg in February 2018.

Seeking his his second season in the abroad next summer, following a successful first stint with Barrow CC in the ECB Northern Premier League, Grant is seeking to join a Premier League club for his next sojourn to the UK and is fortunate enough to hold a UK Ancestral Visa which is in place. A high quality top order batsman that will no doubt be an exceptional pick up.
