Boeta Dippenaar first scored his first century against New Zealand at the Wanderers. After that he showed his potential against Bangladesh with 178. He found his tendency to play across and around his back-foot defensive strokes was costly against quality Test bowlers. The reach and the sweetness of the timing are the basics of his game. He has also had great success while opening the batting in one-dayers and cemented his place in the one-day side after a fantastic series against West Indies in 2005, when he ended with an average of more than 100.
