Jacobus Francois "Flooi" du Toit (April 2, 1869-July 10, 1909) was a South African cricket player. With just one match to his name, du Toit has the distinction of making a combined first-class and Test debut. Along with G. Cripps, C.G. Fichardt and E.A. Halliwell, also combined debutants, du Toit was selected for the only Test match against a touring England side led by W.W. Read in 1891/92. In a match won handsomely by the visitors (by an innings and 189 runs), du Toit scored 0 not out and 2 not out, took one wicket for 47 runs, the England captain’s no less, and held one catch.
Du Toit was born in Jacobsdal in Orange Free State on April 2, 1869 and died in Lindley, in the same South African state, on July 10, 1909, aged 40. His death went unrecorded in cricket circles and therefore no obituary appeared for him within the pages Wisden at the time.
