Jesse CHristensen is an exciting young up and comer from Capte Town, South Africa. A attacking Right-hander that can bat anywhere in the top order, Jesse is also a more than capable Right-arm Off-Spinner. A schoolboy star and the brother of Eastern Province gun, Matthew Christensen, Jesse was a regular feature at the various National age group weeks and ultimately for the South African U19 team throughout 2016/17. He represented South Africa U19 on 20+ occasions.

Dominant at age group level, Jesse was Western Provinces leading run-scorer at the 2015-16 Cricket South Africa U17 week, scoring 204 runs @ 51.00. He backed this up with 281 runs @ 56.20 the following year at the prestigious Khaya Majola U19 championship in 2016-17. First Class and List A debut’s would follow in March 2017 for his native Western Province.

In summer 2019-20, Jesse represented the South African Invitational XI vs England in 2 one-dayers and having shown glimpses of his talent at the top level with a career-best 98 (91) against Northerns at Newlands, the best is yet to come with this enigmatic young talent. He is also a handy off-spinner.

Seeking his first stint in the UK in 2022, Jesse will be an excellent pick up for any UK club seeking a gun top order Batsman that can bowl some better than useful off-spin next summer.
