Durham County Cricket Club has signed Johann Myburgh for the duration of the Friends Life t20 competition after he impressed on trial with the club
Myburgh, who has previously played for Hampshire, joined up with the squad earlier this week and will be available for the Dynamos first match against Yorkshire Carnegie tomorrow (Fri 15 June).
The 31 year old right handed batsman has a t20 average of 30 with a top score of 88 and can be utilised as an off spin option.
On joining Durham, Johann Myburgh said, “It’s been a great few days with Durham already and I’m looking forward to getting started in the t20. I felt in good shape in the warm up games and scored a few runs so hopefully I can continue to perform well and post some good scores for the team. I know Durham has big aspirations in the competition after reaching the quarter finals last year and I want to be contributing to more success.”
Head Coach Geoff Cook added, “It’s great to have Johann join us for the duration of the t20 competition. He has a great attitude and I was impressed by his performance for us this week, not just with the bat but in the field too. With Paul Collingwood injured he is an experienced batsmen to add that extra dimension to our batting line up and also offers us an extra bowling option.”
