Michael James Rippon (born 14 September 1991) is a South African-born Dutch cricketer. Rippon is a right-handed batsman who bowls slow left-arm chinaman. He was born in Cape Town.

Early career in South Africa[edit]

Educated at Rondebosch Boys' High School, Rippon made his Twenty20 debut for Cape Cobras against the Knights in the 2010–11 Standard Bank Pro20. He made five further appearances for the Cobras in that competition, with his final appearance coming in the final of the competition against the Warriors.[1] In his six appearances in the competition, Rippon took 4 wickets at an average of 31.75, with best figures of 2/28.[2] It was in that same season that he made his debut for Western Province in a List A match against Boland.[3]

The following season, Rippon made his first-class debut for Western Province against KwaZulu-Natal Inland at the City Oval, Pietermaritzburg, in the CSA Provincial Three-Day Competition. He made two further first-class appearances during the competition, against Boland and Easterns.[4] He scored 40 runs in his three first-class matches,[5] and took 6 wickets at an average of 45.33, with best figures of 3/34.[6] He also made four Twenty20 appearances for Western Province in the 2011–12 CSA Provincial T20,[1] taking 6 wickets at an average of 18.16, with best figures of 3/24.[2]

Move to England[edit]

Rippon signed for English county side Sussex for the 2012 season, signing a contract which keeps him there until the end of the 2013 season.[7] Having spent much of the 2012 season playing for the Sussex Second XI, he made his senior debut for the county in the 2012 Friends Life t20 against Kent at the County Ground, Hove. He took figures of 4/23 on debut to help Sussex to an 83 run victory.[8] He has since made two further appearances in the competition, against Surrey at The Oval, and Hampshire at the Rose Bowl.[1] Rippon has suggested he may want to qualify for England.
