Myburgh earns Durham deal
Durham have strengthened their squad for the Friends Life t20 with the signing of Johann Myburgh.
The 31-year-old former Hampshire batting all-rounder, who has a Twenty20 average of 29, impressed during his trial at the Emirates Durham ICG and goes straight into the Dynamos’ squad for tomorrow’s North Group encounter with Yorkshire at Headingley Carnegie.
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 have 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."
