He has been a consistent performer in domestic cricket for a few years now and his hard work eventually paid dividends in 2019. Linde travelled to India as a part of South Africa A side in July-August. He was pretty impressive in 50-over games, taking five wickets and scoring 70 runs at a strike rate of 162.79.

Those performances helped him earn a spot in the South African T20I squad as he was a replacement player for JJ Smuts who was withdrawn due to fitness issues. He didn’t play T20Is but Linde was added as cover for Keshav Maharaj in the Test squad. He made his Test debut in the third Test against India and was pretty good. He scored 64 runs in two innings with the bat and took 4/133 in the only innings that he bowled.

In 2020, before the coronavirus pandemic forced the world to go into lockdown, Linde was also named in the 15-man ODI squad that travelled to India.
