Captain for the Chevrolet Knights. He should be nicknamed the star of Bethlehem, being born in that sleepy town in the North West province of South Africa.
Best known for his off-spinning abilities, Werner Coetsee is a capable batsman who averages over 30 in first-class cricket and has often rescued the Knights from tricky situations.
He has been used extensively in the three-day and one-day competitions. He is the go-to man in situations that require containing and has good economy rates in all formats.
Coetsee, debuted for the North West in 2003 in List-A cricket, and in the same year in first class cricket at Johannesburg.
His career best figure of 130 against Griqualand West at Potchefstroom in 2005/2006.
His Twenty20 debut was in 2005 for Eagles.
His 20 over career best figure of 44 against Western Province in 2012/2013.
