The Diamonds add some Protea power to the squad

Chloe Tryon’s arrival at Headingley is a long time coming for the dynamic South Africa all-rounder.

In 2019, Tryon signed on to play for the Yorkshire Diamonds in the Kia Super League before a knee injury meant she was unable to fulfil those commitments.

Now, she has returned to Headingley ready to “cause some chaos” with the Northern Diamonds.

That’s what director of cricket James Carr expects the powerful batter and left-arm spinner to do during her spell with the region until the start of August.

Tryon was a key part of South Africa’s run to the final of the T20 World Cup on home soil in February, losing out to Australia in the final.

She has played 186 times for her country across all three formats, including one Test Match. She made her international debut back in 2010. That means the Durban-born overseas star will add significant experience to the squad as well as skill.

She has an international best score of 92 to her name in ODI cricket and a best of 2-8 in T20s with the ball.

Tryon, aged 29, is a hot property in terms of short-form domestic cricket around the world, having played for the likes of Sydney Thunder, Hobart Hurricanes, Barbados Royals and London Spirit during her career.

She has signed on to play for the Southern Brave in this summer’s edition of the Hundred.
