All-rounder George Linde has been sold by the Hoeri Kwaggo Bulls to the Dromedaris Dragons ahead of this year’s edition of the Cape Premier League.
Linde represented the Bulls during the inaugural Cape Premier League in 2019. He hadn’t played for the Proteas at the time, but has since been capped in Test cricket.
He has also since swapped Durbanville Cricket Club for Brackenfell Cricket Club in the Western Province Cricket Association premier league.
The left-handed Linde was recently sold for one million CPL dollars – the tournament’s fictional currency – to the Dragons.
The Hoeri Kwaggo Bulls lost last year’s CPL final to the Cape Vikings at Newlands.
The Bulls had three of the inaugural tournament’s seven most expensive players – Cape Town Cricket Club’s Brendan Young, Bellville Cricket Club’s Justin Dill and Brackenfell Cricket Club’s Michael Loubser. Young, Dill and Loubser were purchased for 750,000, 575,000 and 525,000, respectively.
The player auction for this year’s Cape Premier League will be hosted on Friday, 7 February.
