• Former Proteas ace stays at Glamorgan

    Former Proteas fast bowler Marchant de Lange has signed a two-year contract extension with Glamorgan in English county cricket.

    De Lange played two Tests, four ODIs and six T20Is between 2011 and 2016 before forging a career in the United Kingdom.

    The tall right-armer famously took seven wickets in the first innings on Test debut against Sri Lanka at Kingsmead in Durban in 2011.

    ‘He gives us that X factor with his extra pace, so to get him on board for a few more years is excellent,’ said Glamorgan director of cricket Mark Wallace.

    ‘Marchant’s made a bit of an impact; he’s starting to get used to the different workloads and the different lengths you have to bowl.’

    The 28-year-old was the county’s leading wicket-taker during the 2019 One-Day Cup and proved a key part of the T20 Blast campaign in August.

    ‘That’s the exciting thing about Marchant, he’s still developing and learning. He’s a very coachable player and he’s got a lot more to give,’ added Wallace.

    Former Proteas batsman Colin Ingram also plays for Glamorgan and was recently drafted for the Welsh Fire ahead of next year’s The Hundred –the England and Wales Cricket Board’s new limited-overs competition.
