The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is delighted to announce the signing of Dawid Malan on a four-year contract.

The Roehampton-born 32-year-old will join up with his new team-mates at the end of the month, and will prepare for the upcoming season with First XI Coach Andrew Gale and his coaching staff.

“It is a fantastic signing for us,” said Gale. “As soon as we realised that Dawid had the potential to leave Middlesex, he was a player that we always wanted to speak to. He fits the mould of what we are looking for.

“It is fair to say that we have lacked consistency with the bat for a number of years. We have looked at bringing people in for a while, but it had to fit the right mould for us.

“We needed somebody with experience and Dawid has got Test experience. Not so long ago, we were watching him score runs for England in the Ashes.

“Hopefully, with his experience, it will give us a bit more consistency with the bat.”

Malan, an England left-hander who has played for Middlesex since 2006, has scored 11,229 First-Class runs – 724 of those in 15 Tests. He averages 37.31 in 188 First-Class matches, including 25 hundreds, 58 fifties.
