The stylish and adventurous right-hander was a key-factor in the semi-final win against Australia in that tournament by blazing 74 off 92 balls. He added 105 for the first wicket with Aiden Markram.
He also pulled off 19 catches in that tournament – some of them spectacular – and achieved a stumping to complement the splendid SA attack.
Fortuin was prolific with the bat in a Youth One Day International series for South Africa against England in 2013 in South Africa. The SA u.19-team whitewashed England in that series.
In the Sunfoil 3-Day Cup, he scored 259 runs in his first six matches for Western Province, a sure sign of things to come.
An excellent athlete blessed with good hands, he has the makings of becoming a top-class wicketkeeper/batsman and could press for Cobras honour if he continues his upward curve.
Fortuin manipulates the strike well and scores all around the wicket by caressing or smashing.
