Bio

David Wiese is a professional cricketer, representing Namibia since September 2021, having become eligible to play International Cricket because of his Namibian father.

Wiese played International cricket for South Africa from 2013 to 2016 before signing a Kolpak deal with an English county team, effectively ending his International career with Cricket South Africa.

Wiese is an all-round player, bowls right arm medium fast and is an explosive batter, known for his big hits down the lower order.

Wiese is a graduate from University of Pretoria, where he pursued his Bachelor of Commerce degree (BCom) in Internal Auditing.
