    Ryan ten Doeschate has been the big name in Dutch cricket since announcing himself in the 2006 Intercontinental Cup. He has become something of a cult figure amongst Essex supporters with his huge hitting, skiddy bowling and big smile. Born in South Africa, he cites Jonty Rhodes as his hero, and has played for Western Province. In 2010, he won the ICC Associate and Affiliate Player of the Year award for his ODI performance with bat and ball. He won that award in 2008 and 2011 as well. The all-rounder has been with KKR since IPL 2011 and will continue to be part of the Kolkata franchise after they procured his services at the 2014 Player Auction.
