South African left-hander David Miller has signed to play for Yorkshire Carnegie in this summer’s Friends Life t20 competition.
The 22-year-old has represented his country in both one-day internationals and Twenty20 cricket and had a spell with Durham last season.
Martyn Moxon, Yorkshire’s director of cricket, said: “David is available for the whole tournament which made him an attractive proposition.
“You look at his strike-rate, he averages 120-plus per hundred balls, and in the Indian Premier League he’s been scoring at 150-plus.
“He’s that explosive type of player we’ve been looking for. I’m excited by the squad we’ve assembled for this campaign.”
Coach Jason Gillespie said, “I think he’s a very good player. He’s very attacking.
“We’re very excited that he’s agreed to come to Yorkshire, he will complement our squad very well.”
Miller has also played in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for Kings XI Punjab.
