Talking about Fortuin’s career, he made his debut in first class cricket in 2013. However, he could not take a single wicket in that match. Fortuin has played only one ODI for South Africa. That too against England last year. However, due to rain the result of this match did not come and he neither got the chance to bowl nor bat.
