Markram is currently with the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League. He will be former Proteas captain Faf du Plessis’ team-mate at Texas.

“I’m very excited about this. For years now, I’ve been following big cricket leagues around the world. The Super Kings brand has been a massive part of all those tournaments. I’m looking forward to the few weeks we’ll spend together as a family,” said Markram.

“Learning from some of the players in that team is something money can’t buy. I’ve been lucky enough to player under Faf previously. He is an incredible leader, an incredible man. To play with him again, to see how he goes about things, is something I’m really excited about.”

Texas reached the play-off stage during Major League Cricket’s inaugural edition in 2023.

Burger to Orcas

Earlier this month, Proteas fast bowler Nandre Burger signed for the Seattle Orcas in Major League Cricket.

Burger is currently with the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL.

He has played two Tests, three ODIs and one T20I since debuting in international cricket in 2023.

“I’m extremely honoured and excited to be joining the Seattle Orcas for season two of Major League Cricket. I look forward to joining the team soon,” said Burger.

The Orcas ended 2023’s inaugural edition of MLC in second position. They lost the final to MI New York, who had South African duo Dewald Brevis and Kagiso Rabada. This year, MI New York will have Proteas fast bowler Anrich Nortje.
