Ashwell PrinceAshwell Prince is a cricketer who plays Test and One Day International cricket for South Africa.

A left handed middle order batsman, he has a high batted stance and is strong through the offside. He is noted for his gritty style of batting and also for being an athletic fielder in the covers. At the age of 29, he became the first non-white man to captain the mostly-white South African cricket team.

He has an unusual ODI shirt number which reads ’5+0′, this is as a mark of respect to the late Hansie Cronje who wore the number 5 during his career. With Cronje’s death his shirt number was retired and South African player’s don’t sport it without a ‘+’ or zero in front of it.
