South Africa batsman Jacques Rudolph has been confirmed as Glamorgan’s overseas player for the next two summers.
Glamorgan still need to receive clearance from Cricket South Africa but that should just be a formality and Rudolph will join up with the Welsh county in both 2014 and 2015.
Glamorgan’s incoming director of cricket Hugh Morris is delighted with the addition of Rudolph and is predicting big things from him during his two-year spell.
“Signing a player of Jacques Rudolph’s undoubted capabilities and experience is a great boost ahead of the new season,” he said.
“With an increasingly heavy first-class schedule it will be a huge advantage to have a world-class opening batsman available to us. I look forward to welcoming Jacques to Glamorgan.”
It is not the first time Rudolph has ventured overseas and he had a very successful five-year spell with Yorkshire, where he scored over 5,000 first-class runs.
Rudolph, who has scored over 16,000 first class runs in his career is also looking forward to another crack at the County Championship with Glamorgan.
“I’m delighted to be joining Glamorgan on a two-year deal,” he said.
“I enjoyed my time playing for Yorkshire so I’m looking forward to the challenge at Glamorgan and hopefully enjoying similar success.”
