Quinton Friend (born 16 February 1982) is a South African domestic cricketer as well as a regular representative in the South Africa A cricket team. He bowls right arm fast-medium with an action similar to Damien Fleming and is a tail-end right handed batsman.

Career[edit]

Friend, who was born in Bellville, Western Cape, debuted for the Warriors in 2002 in List-A cricket, and in 2002 in first class cricket at Pietermaritzburg.[1] He took career best figures of 3/36 against Western Province Boland in a one day match on 17 November 2004,[2] and the following year in January 2005 he took 5/93 in one day again against Western Province in a first class match,[3] ending with final figures of 6/114.[4] Against Western Province again Friend was the pick of the bowlers with 4/65 on 2 March 2006 during a one day game,[5]

In 2007, Western Provinces merged with Boland to become the Cape Cobras, who then released Friend on 12 July 2007 to join the Dolphins.[6] He led them to victory against the Titans on 22 October 2007,[7] however eight days later was suspended for one match along with Titans' Martin van Jaarsveld for verbal abuse.[8]
