South African all-rounder David Wiese has been recruited by the Khulna Titans in the 2019 Bangladesh Premier League.
Ireland batsman Paul Stirling has also joined, after West Indian Sherfane Rutherford was denied a no-objection certificate.
‘Since Sherfane Rutherford failed to obtain a NOC, we were in a dire need to find a replacement. We think Paul is a great addition to the Titans squad. And we hope David is also capable of bringing some good results for us,’ said Khulna Titans media and commercial manager Minhaz Uddin Khan.
Wiese played for the Paarl Rocks in the recent Mzansi Super League. He initially joined the Rocks as a temporary replacement during batsman Cameron Delport’s brief stint in Sharjah’s T10 League. However, he eventually joined on a full-time basis after Australian Michael Klinger was sidelined by injury.
