Michael van Dewenter's Rollers' career can very clearly be broken into two phases ... pre-Ryan Cooper's bachelors, and post-Ryan Cooper's bachelors. When he made his debut back in 2012, he wouldn't say a word and drank Coke for fines, now we can't get him to shut up and Klipdrift's sales have risen exponentially. A solid line and length bowler with a knack for picking up wickets, he is also the Rollers' star batsman - in the nets. Became the latest in a long line of reluctant captains when he took over the armband at the start of the 2020/21 season.
