David Wiese has joined South African franchise Paarl Rocks for the remainder of the country’s ongoing Msanzi Super League T20 tournament.
The all-rounder was initially signed on a short-term basis to cover Cameron Delport’s time at the T10 League in the UAE, but following an injury to Australian Michael Klinger during the Rocks’ match against Cape Town Blitz on Wednesday, Wiese has been added to the squad on a permanent basis.
