He made his first-class debut for Free State (now called Eagles) in October 2003, taking two wickets and scoring 25 runs.
He had also appeared eight times for South Africa Under-19's, during the 2001–02 Under-19 World Cup.
He had been called up for the South African One-day side for the Kenya and Bangladesh series, but had to withdraw, because Kent did not release him from his Kolpak contract. After renouncing his Kolpak status, he was called up by South Africa to play against Zimbabwe and England in the 2009–10 season.
He signed a contract with Mumbai Indians to play in the Indian Premier League T20. Although he did not feature in the 2009 edition, he played a bigger role in making his team reaching the finals. He also won man of the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore on 17 April; he scored 40 while opening with Sachin Tendulkar and took 1 for 21 with the ball.
It was announced on 18 February 2010 that he had signed to play for Middlesex in the 2011 Friends Provident Twenty20 Cup competition.
