Seasoned South African international cricketer Dané van Niekerk has signed a deal with Sunrisers for the English Women’s Domestic League campaign.

The official announcement was made on Friday, 24 March 2023, a day after van Niekerk was also unveiled for the Oval Invincibles team ahead of The Hundred tournament later this year.

 

Speaking on the signing of van Niekerk, Sunrisers Head Coach Andy Tennant said on sunriserscricket.com: “This is an extremely exciting time for Sunrisers, and having the ability to bring in Dané speaks volumes of the work that has been going on behind the scenes at this Club.

“We all know exactly what Dané is capable of, and the experience that she will bring to our group of players is invaluable. We made sure that the current squad were aware throughout the whole process, and Eva and Mady have always spoken so highly of her after spending so much time together during the Hundred. She’s both a brilliant player and a brilliant person, and we can’t wait to welcome her into the Sunrisers family.”

The Pretoria-born was also revealed as part of the FairBreak CHK Invitational in February 2023 and is currently playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Women’s Premier League.
