Morné Nico van Wyk (born 20 March 1979) is a right-handed South African cricketer who has played in 13 One Day Internationals for the Proteas.[1][2]

He has also functioned as wicket-keeper. He made his ODI debut at Lords in 2003 scoring 17 in a very low scoring game. He is also the brother of fellow Eagles player Divan van Wyk. On 9 January 2011 in a Twenty20 International match against India, Morné scored the quickest half-century ever by a South African. It came off only 24 balls.
