Early Life and Career:

  • Born in Bloemfontein, South Africa, in 1989, Rossouw’s talent was evident from a young age. He excelled in the 2008 Under-19 World Cup, showcasing his elegant strokeplay and ability to score big runs.
  • Soon after, he made his mark in domestic cricket, becoming the leading run-scorer in the South African first-class competition in 2009-10. He displayed consistent performance over the next few years, averaging over 40 in first-class cricket for several seasons.

International Debut and Hiatus:

  • Despite his domestic success, breaking into the strong South African national team proved challenging. However, Rossouw finally received his international call-up in 2014, making his debut in ODIs and T20Is.
  • He showcased his potential with some promising performances, including a century against Bangladesh in the 2016 T20 World Cup. However, a lack of consistent opportunities and competition for places saw him take a break from international cricket in 2016.
