Dewald Nel Signs For Worcestershire

Worcestershire CCC has announced the signing of Scottish International Dewald Nel for a ten day period. Nel, aged 26 is a right arm medium fast bowler and is currently enjoying an excellent season with Scotland in the Friends Provident Trophy.

The County’s Director of Cricket, Steve Rhodes, says “Our seam bowling resources are severely stretched so we needed to find more cover. Dewald has played some 2nd XI cricket for us and has performed really well for Scotland this season.”

The County, beset by injuries to Doug Bollinger (side and hip strain), Matt Mason (an ongoing shoulder injury) and Nadeem Malik (shin problems) has secured the services of Nel for the forthcoming LV County Championship matches against Yorkshire and Lancashire.
