Klaas-Jan Jeroen van Noortwijk (born July 10, 1970 in Rotterdam, Zuid-Holland) is a Dutch cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and a right-arm medium-pace bowler. He started playing cricket at VOC in Rotterdam when he was 8 years old. A back injury prevented him from pursuing a bowling-career, but gave him the opportunity to concentrate on his batting. He made his debut at the age of 23 and played for the Netherlands for 9 years. He was a strong performer in important matches.

van Noortwijk holds the record for the highest individual score for the Netherlands in a One Day International, having scored an unbeaten 134 against Namibia at the 2003 World Cup.[1] But he will also be remembered for his 64 runs against England during the 1996 World Cup.

Currently, he is an organizational trainer/coach, getting the best out of other people and help them to perform better.
