Andrew Hall is one of the talented players of the South Africa cricket team. He seized the first opportunity he got to play international cricket. He played only one match and then again reappeared in April 2003 for three one-day games. With Herschelle Gibbs struggling for form, Hall was given a match as Gary Kirsten’s opening partner. He performed against the world’s fastest bowler Brett Lee, scoring a composed 46 and it was enough to win him a place in the South African squad for Sri Lanka. He is an all rounder and has played indoor cricket for South Africa before breaking into the first-class game. Andrew Hall was initially seen as a bowler who batted down the order, but today he is equally recognized as a batsman. He has taken 16 wickets in the series, and ensured South Africa won at Headingley with a buccaneering 99 not out.
