Sussex Announce Signing Of Sandri For 2009
Sussex CCC is delighted to announce the signing of Pepler Sandri on a one-year contract.
Born in Cape Town, Sandri, 26, holds an Italian passport, which enables him to play for Sussex, subject to ECB approval. Pepler has recently made his mark in South African cricket – performing well for the Cape Cobras.
Taking 72 wickets in his first-class career, at an average of 28.41, Sandri will add greater depth to the Sussex attack.
Mark Robinson, Professional Cricket Manager, said: “Pepler is someone we’ve been tracking for a couple of seasons now and we’ve been alerted to the fact that he wants to come over and live in England. We sent Mark Davis over recently to have a look and meet him. Mark came back with a very favourable report and recommended that we gave him a one-year contract to see how he adapts to English conditions.
“We’re excited to have him on board as he gives us the potential to have somebody a bit different, who can possibly be with us for the next four or five years.”
