Justin Ontong made both his Test and ODI debuts at the young age of 21 but it is only recently that he has established himself as a member of the limited overs squads. A return to Test cricket may also be just around the corner following the outstanding form he has shown in the last few seasons of Sunfoil Series four-day cricket.

He is currently captain both of the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras franchise and South Africa A which is further evidence of his growing maturity as a cricketer.

He is particularly effective in the ODI arena where he is a good finisher, is one of the best fielders in the country and is a useful back-up spin bowler.
