Mignon du Preez (born 13 June 1989) is a South African cricketer, who was the women's team captain in all 3 forms of cricket Test, ODI and Twenty20 from 2011 to 2016. A right-handed batsman and occasional wicket-keeper, du Preez made her debut for the South Africa national women's cricket team in January 2007, aged seventeen.[1] Besides being the South African player with most matches as captain in both ODI[2] and Twenty20,[3] she is also the highest run-scorer for South Africa women in Twenty20[4] and the second highest in ODI.[5]

On 21 February 2016, she became the first South African women to score 1,000 career runs in T20I during a match against England.[6] On 21 June 2016, she decided to step down as South Africa women's captain, after having led the team for almost 5 years (since 2011) in one Test, 46 ODIs and 50 T20Is.[7][8]

On 25 June 2017, in South Africa's match against Pakistan in the 2017 Women's Cricket World Cup, she became the first woman for South Africa to play in 100 ODI matches.[9]

Education

She is studying towards a marketing degree at the University of Pretoria.[10]
