#2 Dirk Nannes

Cricket Records

Another Australian to feature in this list, is none other than the interesting figure of Dirk Nannes.  Having played for both Australia and the Netherlands, Nannes has turned out to be one of only a handful of players, to who have played for more than one international teams.

Surprisingly, before taking up cricket as a profession, Nannes had been a free-form skier and from that point forward he has played crosswise over nine distinct nations.

Some of the teams which the fast bowler has represented are:

  • Australia
  • Basnahira Cricket Dundee
  • Canterbury
  • Chennai Super Kings
  • Delhi Daredevils
  • Lions
  • Melbourne Renegades
  • Middlesex
  • Mountaineers
  • Netherlands
  • Nottinghamshire
  • Otago
  • Royal Challengers Bangalore
  • Somerset, Surrey
  • Sydney Thunder
  • Sylhet Royals

In his initial cricket vocation, he played for groups like Hawthorn Waverly and later Fitzroy Doncaster. Much like Brad Hodge, Nannes too has been a solid member of the Victorian Bushrangers and has picked up the notoriety for being a genuine quick bowler, knocking down some pins at around 150km/hr.

While playing in the Sheffield Shield, he was once prohibited for two back to back beamers, and both his international and domestic careers have been regularly tormented by injuries.

Due to the aforementioned reasons, his immense worth as a quick bowler, did not have an effective vocation in either domestic nor international cricket. However, these matters do not understate the fact, that he was a true asset, and a first pick of most teams that he played for, in his cricketing career. And, this eventually allowed him to break several cricket records throughout his playing time.
