A former captain of the SA U19 side, Vandiar gave a glimpse of his talent in the 2016/17 Momentum One-Day Cup with 296 runs in seven innings, including a marvellous 153 plundered off just 124 balls against the Cape Cobras when the Titans reached 400 for the first time in 50-over cricket.
The 28-year-old is a wonderful strokemaker in the finest traditions of left-hand batsmen, but did not play for the Titans in the second half of 2017/18, due to injury, and last season was obviously a vital one for the KZN-educated player who has also turned out in the colours of the Dolphins and the Highveld Lions.
And Vandiar responded well with a solid season in all formats. He was especially good in the four-day competition and was the Titans’ leading run-scorer, averaging 37.41, with one century and three fifties, and he also scored a hundred in the Momentum One-Day Cup.
With Theunis de Bruyn, he helped the Titans cruise to victory in their T20 match in Pietermaritzburg, coming to the crease with 104 runs needed in 9.5 overs and stroking 45 not out off 27 balls.
