Johannes is an experienced pro going into the 13th year of a underrated professional cricket career. A well disciplined player that plays as an attacking left arm spinner, Johannes is always a threat with the ball in hand. A short form specialist, Johannes picked up career best T20 Provincial bowling figures of 4-13 against the strong Free State Province in a T20 clash in October 2011, his first full season of provincial cricket.

He’s gone on to produce over 250 Professional wickets across all 3 formats with good economy but has been somewhat under used considering the impact slow left arm spinners generally have in the game.

2012 Saw JD head to the UK for the first time, joining Grimsby Town CC, bagging 30 wickets @ 20.73. He returned in 2015, joining Gt Witchingham CC in the ECB East Anglian Premier League putting in a solid all-round performance with some tough runs and 27 sticks @ 25.15. Johannes returned in 2016 to join Dalton CC where he collected 31 wickets @ 15.10 in an impressive showing with the ball for Dalton CC in Cumbria.

JD returned to the UK in 2019, joining Worlington CC for their Two Counties Division One defence. Not required to contribute too often with the bat, JD was once again excellent with ball in hand, picking up 31 wickets @ 12.06 in 16 games.

A handy lower order batsman, Johannes has shown glimpses of what he can do with the bat and will looking to become much more consistent bat in hand in the future. A good slow bowler with a good record in South Africa, Johannes will be a good pick up for a UK club for next summer that is seeking a strike spinner that can contribute with the bat.
