Pretorius recently left the Knights for North West in division one of South African domestic cricket.

“I am very excited to join Durham, I can’t wait to get going. It has been a dream of mine to play county cricket and to get the chance to do it for Durham is even better,” said Pretorius.

Durham director of cricket, Marcus North added: “We are pleased to have signed Migael to play for Durham in the County Championship.

“He is a proven performer in South Africa and his success back home has seen him earn an international call-up for his national side.

“With Matt Parkinson on loan until the end of July and a number of injuries to our bowling stocks we felt it was important to recruit an overseas bowler in Migael to strengthen our bowling attack.”

Pretorius, who has played in the Caribbean Premier League, has been retained by the Pretoria Capitals for the second edition of the SA20.
