Mornantau 'Nantie' Hayward (born 6 March 1977) is a South African cricketer. He is a right-arm fast bowler, who, according to Peter Robinson, "has genuine pace, the ability to get bounce and abundant energy".[1] At the time of Robinson's article, "Hayward [was] clearly seen as the successor to Allan Donald as the spearhead of the South African attack." [1] However Hayward has not played a Test match since August 2004 and a One Day International since April 2002. Steve Waugh appears to have reached this conclusion in this autobiography, saying that: "I'm amazed he didn't...become world-class...a collective cheer went up in the Australian camp whenever his unpredictable raw pace was overlooked [by the South African selectors]." [2] He played for Ireland in the 2007 Friends Provident Trophy.[3] He currently plays for Derbyshire.
