Marchant de Lange was born on 13 October 1990. He is a South African cricketer. He is a right-arm fast bowler and tail-end right-handed batsman and was called up to the South Africa squad from relative obscurity and little first-class experience for the series against Sri Lanka. Marchant was drafted as a late replacement for Vernon Philander in the second test match against Sri Lanka and returned figures of 8/126 on Test debut, including 7/81 in the Sri Lankan first innings. The figures are the best for any bowler in Test cricket in 2011.

De Lange is a tall right-arm fast bowler with an ability to gain swing and accuracy. Prior to his cricketing career, he was a javelin thrower hence his ability to attain such impressive pace around 145-150 km/hr from a short run-up.

He won Man Of The Match Award for South Africa by 5 wickets.
