Miller joins Durham
Durham have added 21-year-old South African David Miller to their Friends Life t20 line-up after the left-hander signed a summer contract with the club.
The powerful middle-order batsman made his debut for South Africa in 2010 and has featured in 13 ODIs and six Twenty20 internationals, with his average in the latter format standing at 41.
In South African domestic cricket, Miller plays for Nashua Dolphins and featured alongside Durham t20 captain Dale Benkenstein in 2010.
On joining Durham CCC, Miller said: “This will be my first time joining a club in the UK as an overseas player and I’m really looking forward to making my mark.
"I’m excited about joining up with Dale and the rest of the squad, I’ve heard plenty of good things about the club and their ambition to do well in this format and I think I can contribute significantly.”
Head coach Geoff Cook added: “We really benefitted from having the extra power in the batting line up last season with Ross Taylor and Albie Morkel so we’re pleased to be able to add David to our current line-up to strengthen the middle order.
“David played alongside our t20 captain Dale Benkenstein in 2010 over in SA and Dale was really impressed by his talent. We’re delighted to have him on board.”
