“I enjoyed my few seasons at Brackenfell. I gave it my all for the team and the team gave their all for me. It is a pity they have been relegated, but I’m confident they’ll bounce back,” Viret told Club Cricket SA.

“For me, the time is right to move on – and I am happy to call Bellville Cricket Club my new home in the WPCA premier league.

“I played at Bellville previously, as a junior, so this is like coming full circle. I am keen to get going with them and see how well we can do in the premier league this time.

“I am seriously grateful to everyone at Brackenfell. I wish them well.”
