Probably best known for his exploits in Twenty20 cricket, Loots Bosman could be the man to watch when the inaugural World Championship in the shorter form of the game takes place on home soil later this year. Born in Kimberley, Bosman is renowned for his flamboyant batting style, which is ideal for packing on the runs early in a game. He has had a few chances in one-day internationals (having been included in the South African squad for the Champions Trophy and the World Cup, but not being used in the team on a regular basis), but it is as an opener for his franchise side in Twenty20 games that he has really shone. Bosman made his debut for Griqualand West in 1997 and later moved to the Free State Eagles. It was for the Eagles that he scored the fastest 50 (off 22 balls) in the Standard Bank Pro20 series against the Highveld Lions last year. He was named player of the series that same year after also becoming the first batsman to score a century in the series, off just 43 balls.
