Articles about Bjorn Fortuin

Born in Paarl, South Africa, Bjorn Fortuin is a bowling all-rounder. A left-arm spinner and a right-handed batsman, Fortuin made his first-class debut in 2013 with the North West cricket team against the Western Province cricket team. On his debut, he was out for a duck and couldn't take any wicket either. However, he has improved his technique since then. Later in 2017, Fortuin was picked by the Durban Qalandars for the inaugural T20 Global League, but the tournament never materialized. For the 2018-19 Cricket South Africa (CSA) T20 challenge, he was part of the Highveld Lions. He proved himself to be a valuable member of the squad by becoming the leading wicket-taker in that tournament. He was also the "Player of the Season" for that edition of the CSA T20 Challenge. His performance at the domestic level earned him a call-up to the national team in 2019 when he made his T20I debut against India. A handy all-rounder, Fortuin was called up for South Africa's ODI series against England in 2020 when he made his ODI debut.
