Mornantau 'Nantie' Hayward (born 6 March 1977) is a former South African cricketer, who played Tests and ODIs. He is a right-arm fast bowler, who, according to Peter Robinson, "has genuine pace, the ability to get bounce and abundant energy".
He has had his education from Daniel Pienaar Technical High school.
He played for Derbyshire until his retirement from all cricket in 2012.
At the time of Robinson's article, "Hayward [was] clearly seen as the successor to Allan Donald as the spearhead of the South African attack." However Hayward did not play a Test match after August 2004 or a One Day International after April 2002. Steve Waugh appears to have reached this conclusion in his autobiography, saying that: "I'm amazed he didn't...become world-class...a collective cheer went up in the Australian camp whenever his unpredictable raw pace was overlooked [by the South African selectors]."
He played for Ireland in the 2007 Friends Provident Trophy.
