Meet newly capped member of the #LionsCharge Nandre Burger
Nandre Burger nailed down a spot in the bizhub Highveld Lions Sunfoil Series match against the Knights in Kimberly on 1 March 2018 that ended in a draw.
Nandre Burger is a work in progress with talents to be progressively shown. This Gauteng cricketer made his first-class debut for Gauteng in the 2015-16 Sunfoil 3-Day Cup on 11 February 2016 and made his list A debut for Gauteng in 2016-17 CSA Provisional One-Day Challenge on 26 February 2017.
Nandre Burger came through the Gauteng Cricket Board (GCB) pipeline starting from age groups all the way to academy. He is a very hard working and motivated young cricketer, always ready to make his move to the next level in the cricket world.
The 22-year-old Krugersdorp born cricketer is a left arm fast bowler and has showed excellent talent by being unstoppable with the ball, coming from the Strikers team, moving his way up to the bizhub Highveld Lions. He has definitely shown his potential to play top flight cricket.
“It was an awesome experience to play and be a part of the bizhub Highveld team. It is good to see how hard work and determination pays off.” Nandre Burger commented.
“My progression from Gauteng to Strikers to the bizhub Highveld Lions team has been tough but worth every moment as I am looking forward to carry on working hard to achieve my ultimate success for the team.”
Nandre is hoping for more game time during the next two and final Sunfoil Series matches where the bizhub Highveld Lions take on the Hollywoodbets Dolphins on 15 March 2018 and then take on the World Sports Betting Cape Cobras on 22 March 2018.
