Cape Town Cricket Club and Cape Cobras batsman David Bedingham has signed a contract with Durham in English county cricket.

Bedingham will be with Durham for one season. He therefore won’t be available for the Cobras’ One Day Cup campaign.

“I’m obviously upset to be leaving my Cobras family which has been an environment that I’ve thrived in since joining at the start of the 2018-2019 season. I want to thank my coaches Ashwell Prince and Faiek Davids for giving me the opportunity to play for this proud franchise,” said Bedingham.

“I’ve always supported the Cobras since I was a young boy, so to play for this team was a dream come true and I hope to always have an affinity with the franchise.

“The opportunity to join Durham is one that I am excited about. I am confident that I will continue my growth as a cricketer.

“Finally, I’d like to thank Cape Cobras chief executive officer Nabeal Dien for the guidance since I was 11 years old. He has seen my progression through the Western Province ranks and I hope to continue the teachings he has imparted on me throughout the years.

“I wish my Cobras team-mates everything of the best for the One Day Cup and for the future.”

The 25-year-old Bedingham played for Cape Town Cricket Club three times – against Victoria Cricket Club (twice) and Durbanville Cricket Club – during the 2019-20 Western Province Cricket Association premier league.
