Jhedli Van Brieses is a talented youngster from the beautiful Mossel Bay in South Africa’s South West. A Right-handed Top Order Batsman, Jhedli is also a exceptional young wicket-keeper. A regular selection for the South Western Districts Provincial age-group squads from the age of 13 through to summer 2019-20, when selected not only for the SWD U19 side to contest the prestigious Khaya Majola National U19 Championships but also the Cape Cobras Franchise Cubs side.

A standout performer for Langenhoven Gim High School, 2019-20 was a breakout year for him. After a sub-par Khaya Majola tournament in December 2019, his selection for the Cape Cobras Cubs side was a show of faith in his ability. The faith was repaid, scoring 190 runs @ 95.00 in 5 games, with scores of 22*, 58*, 56 & 54*. His rich vein of form at the Cubs week culminated in Jhedli being handed his debut for South Western Districts against rivals, Eastern Province. Selected as a batsman, he scored a patient 1st innings 24 (42) in a draw but didn’t look out of place at that level. He would follow his debut up with another5 matches to close out the summer and showed enough to be handed a semi-pro contract for 2020-21.

A typically enthusiastic youngster, Jhedli is seeking his first season abroad in 2022 and will be a good pick up for a UK club seeking an outstanding gloveman that could provide a real spark to the batting line up with his generally attacking style of play.
