Profile for Keshav Maharaj. Profile Updated On 20 Wednesday November 2019 165603000000
Keshav Maharaj is a committed wholehearted performer. A calculating left arm orthodox spinner who can bowl at any stage of the innings and a handy right-handed lower order batsman. Maharaj made his first-class debut at the age of 16 for KwaZulu-Natal in 2006-07. He was promoted to the Dolphins team in 2009-10.

He toured Bangladesh with the South Africa Academy in April-May 2010, taking 13 wickets in the two four-day matches against Bangladesh Cricket Board Academy. He also took 4 for 12 off four overs, opening the bowling, in one of the T20 matches. He played for South Africa A against the touring Bangladesh A team in 2010-11.

He played for Cuckfield in the Sussex Premier League in 2013. He signed to play as a professional for Nelson in the Lancashire League in 2015. He was included in the KwaZulu-Natal cricket team squad for the 2015 Africa T20 Cup.

A consistent performer, Maharaj strode into the national team on the back of a fine domestic season and was taken as the first-choice spinner on the tour of Australia in late 2016. He made his debut in Perth and has since then emerged as their first-choice spinner.

A classical left-arm spinner, Maharaj has since then emerged as the ideal foil for South Africa's stellar pace attack. On helpful surfaces, he can emerge as the trump card, as reflected during the tour of New Zealand, where he emerged as South Africa's leading bowler with 15 wickets. He followed it up with 17 wickets from four Tests against England.

Maharaj has an impressive career record considering he's mostly played on unhelpful surfaces in England and Oceania. His real Test might come in the sub-continent, but as of now, he's certainly positioned himself as the go to bowler for South Africa in the red-ball format of the game.
