    Dirk Nannes

    Great news...he will play for the Dutch this summer. That really strengthens the team an awful lot. Now go and kill some Poms, young Dirk.

    Makes up for not having grown up in the Netherlands with an awesome name.

    A passport is a passport. And indeed his name is properly Dutch.

    Bowls genuinely quick. Be pretty funny if he filled someone in from Australia.

    Doesn't look it; and probably has more years in him seen he never played cricket til his late 20's

    Doesn't have a smooth action though, body will deteriorate fast. And when he loses his pace in his mid-30's he won't have much. Nowhere near consistent enough to make it as a stock 135kph outside off bowler.

    Holland definitely have a good chance of getting through into the super8 now. You only need a couple of players to have a good game to win a T20, and RTD and Nannes are capable of doing that against England or Pakistan.

    Indeed, a lot of late swing too. Nannes has a genuine chance to impress on the world stage, considering he has played a great deal of cricket in England and although he has a fine OD and FC record, T20 appears to be his game...

    RTD and Nannes FTW!
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Been playing for a long time, just never took it seriously until his skiing subsided.

    Pretty injury prone his whole career, for the record.

    Even if thats true (and Ive only seen him bowl a few times so I dont doubt it), he is still a great addition at Associate level for years to come.
