He has also functioned as a 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.
During the 2014–15 West Indian tour of South Africa, van Wyk scored a Twenty20 International century in the third T20I of the series, and by doing so became the third South African to score a T20I century. He also represented the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League scoring 167 runs from the 5 matches he played with a highest score of 74.
