David Wiese Profile

South African cricket has had an unpleasant history of players signing the Kolpak deal and making the switch to county cricket in England. However, not many of them have gone on to represent another country after representing South Africa. One of them is David Wiese, who currently represents Namibia.

David Wiese is a right-handed batting all-rounder representing Namibia. Hailing from Roodepoort, South Africa, Wiese began his professional career in South Africa when he made his first-class debut for Easterns during the 2005-06 SAA Provincial Challenge. In October 2005, he made his List A debut for Easterns in the 2005-06 SAA Provincial Cup and three years later, in 2008, he made his T20 debut for the Titans in the domestic competition.

After grinding for years in the South African domestic circuit, Wiese made his T20I debut in 2013 against Sri Lanka. In 2015, he made his ODI debut for South Africa during the home series against New Zealand. Wiese then opted for the Kolpak route and started playing county cricket in England.

In 2021, Wiese became eligible to represent Namibia since his father was born in that country. He represented Namibia in the 2021 T20 World Cup and played a key role in helping them qualify for the Super 12 stage. Wiese has plied his trade in several franchise leagues across the globe, notably the Indian T20 League, Pakistan Super League, Caribbean Premier League and The Hundred.

Wiese had represented Bangalore before in the Indian T20 League but will feature for the Kolkata franchise in the 2023 Indian T20 League season. David Wiese bats in the lower order for Namibia and performs the finisher role with aplomb. He is astute with his change-of-pace deliveries and makes significant contributions with the ball as well.
