The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is delighted to announce the signing of fast bowler Duanne Olivier, who will join the club ahead of the 2019 campaign, subject to clearance through Kolpak regulations.

The White Rose beat off competition from a number of other counties to secure the signature of the Groblersdal-born 26-year-old. Olivier has penned an initial three-year deal with the Club and will link up with his new team-mates for the first time during the fortnight-long pre-season tour to Potchefstroom early next month.

The South African quick made his Test debut in January 2017, and has since taken 48 wickets in 10 Tests at an average of 19.25. He is just one short of 400 wickets in the 96 First-Class matches he has played to date and was the leading wicket-taker for the Knights in 2018-2019, Cricket South Africa’s four-day franchise series, notching 27 dismissals in six matches.
